The parade will be led by actor Ian Somerhalder of the television shows “Lost” and “The Vampire Diaries, with proceeds from the parade to benefit both canines and kids through the Ian Somerhalder Foundation (ISF). Last year, more than 500 dogs participated, and there was an estimated crowd of 25,000 spectators. Get parade information at mardipaws.com.

March 13 and March 27, 2020: Premiere of The Dog Doc Documentary

 

 

The Dog Doc film poses a serious question about whether we are over medicating our pets and ourselves, combining touching stories of families with the hard science of integrative care. By casting an intimate lens over this unique world, The Dog Doc shows the healing powers of wellness, compassion and hope. The Dog Doc, veterinarian Dr. Marty Goldstein, is a pioneer of integrative medicine, which combines conventional medicine with cutting-edge alternative treatments. Attracting four-legged patients from around the world, Dr. Goldstein’s practice, Smith Ridge Veterinary Center in South Salem, NY provides holistic care for animals after other vets have given up hope. Directed by Cindy Meehl (Buck) the documentary hits New York theaters on March 13 and Los Angeles, CA theaters on March 27. Find out more details at the official website dogdocthefilm.com.

March 23, 2020: National Puppy Day

The motto of National Puppy Day is “No love like puppy love.” Ain’t that the truth! Puppy kisses just can’t be beat. If you have a puppy, you can celebrate this day by spending extra time with your little one. Or, better yet, consider adding another puppy to your life. You may also want to look into volunteering with a local dog rescue, serving as a puppy socializer or even a foster home for puppies who are too young to be adopted out. For more ideas, visit nationalpuppyday.com.
