Dog Days of Summer event to benefit HELP

GENEVA – Scentimental Gardens, 427 W. State St., Geneva, will be transforming its shop garden into a dog and dog lover’s haven, complete with treats, toys, portraits, prizes, and a dog kissing booth from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Aug. 23.

The event not only marks the store’s 25th year in Geneva, but will benefit Homes for Endangered and Lost Pets, which will be bringing dogs that are available for adoption, said Agnes Smith, assistant to the shop’s owner. 

“We are a dog-friendly shop, and everyone who works here cares about the dogs,” Smith said. “We chose HELP because their mission is a non-shelter rescue organization ... and the fact that they are local.”

So far, HELP is bringing two dogs available for adoption to the event, but Smith said that could change as dogs being fostered will change from week to week.

Employees and customers are expected to bring their pets to the event, she said.

Dog Days of Summer includes a dog costume contest at 11 a.m.
