The upcoming “Dog Days of Spring” event will be hosted to honor these beloved dogs and their special family connection. “Dog Days of Spring” event captures a photographic portrait of your family dog. A portrait you are sure to treasure a lifetime. This event will consist of a portrait session of a family dog with session fees being donated to the Animal Protective League (APL).
