Come visit The Friends of The New Haven Animal Shelter on Broadway Island from 12-4pm. They will have several dogs for adoption, and information regarding other animals at the shelter. FREE dog caricatures will be available from 12-4pm, as well as animal-inspired art from local artists at the pop-up art market!
