Dogs Celebrate Summer... with Ice Cream Social

The ice cream social was a chance for canines and humans to get together. The ice cream social was a chance for canines and humans to get together. Rockaway’s canines celebrated summer with a get-together for them and their humans last Saturday as NY Tails, ARF ARF, and the Parks Department sponsored a Canine Ice Cream Social at the Rockaway Freeway Dog Park on Beach 86 Street. Dog caricatures were drawn by Thomas Kerr, an ASCPA mobile provided free spaying or neutering and ARF ARF raised money through raffles and games. The highlight of the afternoon was free frozen yogurt treats made especially for the doggie set.
