It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go...but imagine being a dog chained outside with 5 feet of space with no shelter in the cold? Unchained NY is a tremendous rescue group who's community outreach program is an intensive, hands-on program, working primarily within low-income communities across Long Island, NY. They work with pet owners to provide non-judgmental assistance in the forms of education, food and supplies to improve the lives of outdoor chained and/or neglected dogs. By working hand and hand with pet owners they strive to bring positive, lasting change in the lives of families and their dogs
Long Island Pet Professionals, LLC, (LIPP), is excited to present the first ‘Holiday Pop-Up Pet Boutique’ here on Long Island to benefit Unchained NY. Attendees can shop for the holidays for their favorite furry companion, enjoy holiday cheer, appetizers and festive refreshments all while raising funds for Unchained NY, (UCNY). All proceeds from purchases at the boutique will go to the rescue group who works with pet owners to provide non-judgmental assistance in the forms of education, food and supplies to improve the lives of outdoor chained and/or neglected dogs. Working hand and hand with pet owners, UCNY strives to bring positive, lasting change in the lives of families and their dogs.
