Puppy Palooza

The time to find your new best friend is finally here! Saturday and Sunday, October 4 and 5, 2014, more than 40 lovable, adoptable, family-friendly dogs are coming to our area for Pupppy Palooza, the pet adoption extravaganza taking place at Petco, 431 Westport Avenue, Norwalk. Those interested in meeting the adorable canines seeking forever homes can do so that weekend from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

 

Presented by The Hour Newspapers, Puppy Palooza is the annual pet adoption event sponsored by The Alliance in Limiting Strays (T.A.I.L.S.), the Fairfield County-based not-for-profit organization that promotes the spay/neutering of animals and provides financial support to humane organizations and individuals in pursuit of this goal.

 

"With more than 40 adoptable pups, Puppy Palooza is the perfect place to find a new best friend,” states T.A.I.L.S. President Dorrie Harris. "In addition to coordinating the logistics for this large event, all the pups will have already been provided with needed checkups, shots, and other necessities to prepare them for adoption.  All they need now are families ready to share their homes and hearts!”

 

Photos and brief descriptions of many of the dogs up for adoption can be viewed at www.tailsct.org; photos of the remaining adoptable dogs will be posted in the days leading up to the event.  Potential adopters are encouraged to visit the website and fill out an application for a specific dog (or specific dogs!) prior to the event.  Those who are pre-approved to adopt will be notified and invited to bring their new pup home on Friday, October 3.

Nate the Great’s 5K Race Held To Benefit Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood

Nathan Thomas Pikul was a happy, healthy, always on the go little boy. He was a typical 18-month old. He loved to run around and kick a soccer ball. He had the bluest eyes and the sweetest smile that allowed him to get away with a lot!

Nate went to sleep on September 24th, 2007 and didn't wake up the next morning. Because he was over 1 year old, Nate's death falls into the category of Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC), which occurs when an apparently healthy child beyond the age of 12 months dies without warning and without a known cause. The SUDC Program is a program of the CJ Foundation for SIDS. There is so little known about SUDC, so building awareness and conducting research is very important.

The Sudden Unexplained Death in Childhood (SUDC) Program was founded in 2001 by the CJ Foundation for SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). A currently unpredictable and unpreventable tragedy, the sudden and unexpected death of a child over 12 months old--which remains unexplained after all known and possible causes of death have been ruled out--is very rare. It occurs in approximately 1.5 out of every 100,000 toddlers.
 
The SUDC Program provides a centralized resource for information, support and advocacy and has created the first and only worldwide database for SUDC.  They provide bereavement services to families affected by SUDC throughout the U.S. and in 14 countries abroad and are a source of critical funding for SUDC research. This important research would not exist today or continue without the dedication of The SUDC Program.

Nate the Great’s 5K Race will be held on Saturday, October 11th at the Rotary Pavilion in Milford, Connecticut with all proceeds to benefit the SUDC Program in memory of Nate Pikul.  There will be a Kid’s 1K Run beginning at 9am, the 5K run/walk will begin at 10am and an after party at Stonebridge Restaurant at 1pm following the awards.  Registration begins at 7:30am.
