'Dog Days of Summer' Festival Brings Pet Adoptions, Dog-Centric Family Fun Back to Hermon Park

City Councilmember Jose Huizar, Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, Friends

of Hermon Dog Park Again Sponsor Major Eastside Pet Festival

LOS ANGELES, July 7 /PRNewswire/ -- If, as the saying goes, every dog is destined to "have its day" then this summer's "Dog Days of Summer" family festival on July 19, 2008, in the Northeast Los Angeles community of Hermon, just may be that day for many dogs (and cats) -- along with the people who take them home.

For the third year, Hermon Park will be the site of a FREE pet event featuring fun for all the family, from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m., this time featuring pet adoptions, a "Puppy Party," veterinary technicians providing low cost health check-ups and services, raffles, and dog agility demonstrations guaranteed to "wow" the audiences.

The follow-on to the eastside's most unique pet adoption event -- first celebrated as the "Yappy Bark Day" anniversary of the dog park's 2005 opening -- this year's "Dog Days" will feature new and returning animal rescue organizations, including Los Angeles County Animal Care, City of Los Angeles Animal Services, and the Pasadena Humane Society. Each rescue organization will bring its most eager, adoptable, heart-stealing animal companions.

Top-level sponsors include Los Angeles City Councilmember Jose Huizar and the city-certified Arroyo Seco Neighborhood Council, which serves Hermon and four other neighborhoods.

Animal service and care providers will once again include pet sitters, groomers, trainers, and -- for the first time -- Vet Care pet check-up technicians offering low-cost animal vaccinations, micro-chipping, and health services.

The jam-packed event has again been organized by Friends of Hermon Dog Park -- the volunteer support organization for the Northeast's only dog park facility.

"Dog Days of Summer" will be held this year around the dog park inside Hermon Park. Enter at the far end of the park driveway (5568 Via Marisol, L.A. 90042), between Monterey Road and the 110 Freeway.

Friends of Hermon Dog Park, created to support the dog park and promote its use, was established in 2006 as a non-profit by the Hermon Dog Park Formation Committee and animal and community activists around the Arroyo Seco.

Additional information about "Dog Days of Summer" will be available at -- as well as on the Websites of select participants.
