RESCHEDULED Del Ray First Thursday – Dog Days of Summer Adoption Event


The Del Ray Business Association is once again hosting a series of free outdoor street festivals along Mount Vernon Avenue this spring and summer called First Thursdays. The first Thursday of June’s event is themed Dog Days of Summer. Businesses will be open late and there will be fun activities for people and dogs. Homeward Trails and other animal rescues will bring dogs who are available for adoption.

Join the fun along the 2500 block of Mt. Vernon Avenue in Alexandria’s Del Ray neighborhood in front of the Mt. Vernon Community School (north of Old Town, south of the airport).

Could one of the animals attending this event be the right pet for you? Come find out! Some of our dogs who are looking for homes will be waiting to meet you and Homeward Trails volunteers will be available to talk to you about our animals available for adoption and our adoption process. If you meet a dog who’s a good potential match, you can submit an adoption questionnaire! Or you can learn how you can help homeless animals by fostering, volunteering or donating!

Potential Adopters- More dogs will likely get signed up so check back as it gets closer to the event. If you are interested in meeting a specific dog at this event, please contact the email address listed on his or her Petfinder page (click name to open) to express your interest and confirm that s/he will be attending.
