Dec. 1 (Saturday)–a great day to be an LIC dog

Nov. 30, 2012 Staff Report

The LIC Veterinary Center, located at 48-18 Vernon Blvd, will host a grand opening event on Saturday between 2-5 pm.

The animal hospital, which opened for business in October, has invited local pet owners to meet its veterinarians, technicians and support staff. There will be free gift bags for the animals.

The center is also a sponsor of this Saturday’s LIC’s Howl-iday Party, which is taking place one block east at The Breadbox Cafe (47-11 11th St.), from 12 pm to 3 pm.

The Breadbox, as with co-sponsor Camp Bow Wow, often puts on events such as the Howl-iday Party. However, this year there was an additional motive: the traditional Halloween costume party was ruined due to Hurricane Sandy.

The Breadbox will provide drinks and snacks at tomorrow’s event, while Kiki LIC will take photos of the dogs with Santa. Trainers from Camp Bow Wow will teach the dogs a few tricks. For the kids, there will be arts and crafts.

The main event will be a best costume contest with three categories for the pooches: cutest ugly sweater, jolly Santa and Top Hat and “Tails”.

For those new to the area, the Breadbox Cafe is easy to spot thanks to its unique facade.

“It’s covered with over a thousand rolling pins,” said Debra Zadrazil, the manager. “Each rolling pin has a plaque with the names of people or businesses that donated to New York Foundling.”

NY Foundling is a local charity that’s been helping needy children since 1869.
