Four-legged furry friends are the focus of a new event coming to Promenade Temecula this June. In partnership with Veteran Supplemental Support Network (VSSN), Promenade Temecula will host the "Dog Days of Summer" every Saturday in June to benefit Transitions 2 Success and Pawz for Wounded Veterans through Canine Support Teams.
The "Dog Days of Summer" kicks-off on Saturday, June 4th at 10 a.m. on the Plaza (outside Edwards Theater) with a pet parade and red carpet Paw-Pawrazzi event. Each Saturday in June will feature different activities including:
June 4: Paw-Pawrazzi red carpet event, pet adoptions and pet/owner look-a-like contest

June 18: Vaccinations, grooming tips and tricks, Extreme Pet Makeover Contest.
June 25: Pooch of the Valley fashion show, pet parade, and doghouse silent auction finale.
In addition, a special seminar hosted by Joel Silverman is scheduled for Saturday, June 11 at 1 p.m. Mr. Silverman is the former host of Good Dog U on Animal Planet, author and founder of Companions for Life. His presentation is sponsored by Camp Bow Wow Temecula.
There will also be custom-built dog houses on display throughout the mall, crafted by area businesses specifically for this event.
These houses will be enjoyed and bid on by visitors to the mall throughout the entire month and then auctioned off via a silent auction held during the Pet Expo on June 25," said Daisy Tate, VSSN founder and event coordinator.
The "Dog Days of Summer" is a collaborative event that will benefit the growing need of animal support for disabled veterans, elderly individuals and people with disabilities. The partners involved also hope to perform over 100 pet adoptions and build foster care programs in the valley.
