Leash up your pup and join us by the banks of the Swan River for a great time when The Pine Grove Inn in East Patchogue welcomes back LI-DOG and our human and doggie guests for LI-DOG’s big summer fundraiser and doggie pawty!

This year’s theme: It’s a Carnival!

Enjoy music, games, prizes, raffles, delicious food–including a special menu for the pups–dog-themed drinks, a paw print craft station, photo booth, and more in a large, pretty outdoor setting. 

This is a major fundraiser for LI-DOG, which works to increase access to public parks and beaches for LI dog owners and their pups. See the latest on our big win–NYS Legislature Overwhelmingly Approves Legislation to Allow Dogs in NYS Parks!

There will be fun games with chances to win prizes for both people and pups. Participate in the “Biggest/Funniest Lap Dog Contest” – always a favorite. Channel your pup’s musical side with Musical Sit and Stay!

Stop by our ARF-Cade to take a chance on the Prize Wheel or Plinko board to win a prize for you or your pup!

Or bring your dog over to the Paw Print booth where he or she can help you make a very special work of art featuring his or her own paws!

Don’t forget to dress up your dog and yourself in your favorite summer outfits so you can pose for memorable photos at the “Happy Day” Photo Booth.

Make sure to visit the raffle tables to take a chance at winning one of the great raffle baskets generously donated by our sponsors — Bark Box, Brutus Bone Broth, Barks Bakeshop, Clovis Point Vineyards, Emily’s Trims and Treats, Farmina Pet Foods, Great South Bay Brewery, Jones Natural Chews, Laura Pea Photography, the Nassau County SPCA, Rachel the Dog Trainer, Veterinary Emergency Group – Carle Place, and more. Plus, many thanks to Alan Meschkow for donating a custom hand-drawn sketch of YOUR dog and Gail Meschkow for donating a beautiful, handknit sweater for your pup with a matching hat for you!

This year, we’ve invited Special Guests to add to the fun! Yorkie 911 will be on hand with their adorable adoptable pups; Laura Pea Photography will be there taking wonderful photos for us; Barks Bakeshop will have delicious doggie treats, Emily’s Trims and Treats will offer pet toys and accessories for sale; Farmina Pet Foods will have goody bags and specialized pet nutrition plans for YOU; plus Rachel The Dog Trainer can help answer your training questions.

Sit and take in the view as you enjoy listening to music provided by our DJ Mike Kaplow. Then, order a delicious lunch from the Pine Grove Inn’s menu.

There is even a special Dog Tail Menu (for people only) featuring Beagle Mary’s, Tom Collies and Chi Wa Wa’s (margaritas of course!).

The restaurant staff has also gone all out to create a special menu for your pup!

A big THANK YOU to the management and staff of The Pine Grove Inn for donating their lovely patio and lawn for Pooch-a-Palooza plus their enthusiastic participation in making sure our guests — human and canine — will be well fed and hydrated!

This truly will be a special day to spend with your dog!
