Known on Capitol Hill as one of the best places to walk your dog, Congressional Cemetery typically only allows dog-walking privileges to members of the K9 Corps. However, Day of the Dog opens the cemetery to the public and their leashed pups, which is a special opportunity for dog lovers to experience this historic site along with local pet vendors and services. Come enjoy sharing the day with many local vendors, over 1,000 people and their dogs, a raffle, adoptions from local rescue groups, craft beers from local brewing companies, and a variety of activities, games and demonstrations for dogs.

Homeward Trails will be represented and in attendance with some adoptable dogs!  Could one of the dogs coming to this event be the right dog for you?  Come check it out and find out!
