LAPORTE | Downtown La Porte will host the 1st Annual Dog Days Downtown for the 2nd Saturday in the month of September, September 14 from 3pm to 7pm. Pet owners and dog fans are welcome to come downtown from 3pm to 7pm with their dogs, stroll the downtown shops, dine al fresco and visit rescues and dog vendors on Rescue Avenue, taking place on Michigan Avenue that evening downtown.

Area rescues, veterinary hospitals, shelters and pet product providers are invited to contact Tiffany Bley, Downtown Director to set up a free booth for the first annual event on 2nd Saturday. “For our first annual event, we’d really like to see area rescues and shelters take advantage of the free opportunity to come downtown and have a great time with us and add to the downtown event.”

Downtown businesses that are participating in 2nd Saturday will also have treats available for dogs and activities. Antique Junction on Lincolnway is hosting Bark-a-Thon now leading up to the event, in which they have the only drop off collection box for donations of needed supplies to the La Porte County Animal Shelter. People dropping off goods will double their chances to win a raffle that will take place on September’s 2nd Saturday, as well as free digital pet photographs in Antique Junction’s vintage photobooth will be available that evening. Engstrom Jewelers, located on Lincolnway Downtown, will be promoting their “Watch Dog” Program in which a portion of proceeds from watch batteries goes to Northwest Indiana Death Row Dogs.

For more information on 2nd Saturday! or other events occurring in Downtown La Porte or how to register to participate in Rescue Avenue, please contact Tiffany Bley at or (219) 362-3178.
