Long Island City, NY (PRWEB) September 30, 2008
As the long dog days of summer are wrapping up, the hottest event of the season is still to come. The Grand Opening and Adoption Event of Camp Bow Wow® Long Island City will be filled with fun events for humans as well as their furry best friends. Camp Bow Wow® Long Island City, the newest New York location of the Premier Doggy Day and Overnight Camp, is throwing a Grand Opening party and Adoption Event on Saturday, October 11, 2008 from 2 p.m. - 7 p.m. Dogs and their two-legged companions are invited to come and visit the brand new doggy day care and overnight boarding camp located at 4716 Austell Place, Long Island City, between Skillman Avenue and 27th Street.
The Grand Opening will be complete with food, games and prizes and excitement all afternoon. Very special guest Marla Steele, the dog psychic featured on Animal Planet, will be making a much-anticipated special appearance. Make sure to line up early to meet Marla and get a free reading for your dog.
"Inviting Marla Steele to our party will make our event even more special for us, we have enjoyed her show on TV for a long time now and I can hardly believe she will be here!" exclaimed Stephen Neagus, owner of the new Camp Bow Wow®. "Giving back to the local community is very important to Camp Bow Wow® and we are excited to announce there will be a dog adoption drive with 'Stray from the Heart' and 'Rescue Ink' at our Grand Opening Event!

This new state-of-the-art All Day Play, Snooze The Night Away® doggy camp will revolutionize the pet hospitality industry. Instead of a day care facility where your dog spends most of its day stacked in containment except for the 30 minutes of playtime a day, Camp Bow Wow® provides all day indoor/out door play yards equipped with puppy safe playground equipment and summer pools for the hot summer days. Each play yard has a Camper Cam® so that 2 legged guardians can view their dogs socializing and interacting with Certified Camp Counselors® all day long. The facility has 10,000 square feet with 6 spacious climate controlled play areas.
Canine Campers romp and play indoors and out with lots of attention from the well-trained staff that are fully trained in pet CPR, behavior and dog first aid for the safety of your loved ones. Overnight campers even get special "Campfire" tasty treats each night before lights out, when they are tucked into their own spacious, comfy and clean Camp Bow Wow® cabin. Each cabin includes a comfy bed to curl up on in a climate controlled atmosphere. Campers from the same household can even stay together in the same cabin.
Camp Bow Wow® strives to provide an environment that is as clean and safe as possible for campers. Campers can be served their very own food during their stay to avoid upset tummies, and special requests, from medicines, extra treats, or care for older pups are provided with no extra cost! This is truly an all inclusive log cabin resort just for your furry friends.
There is a special interview process where your dog gets the chance to interact and experience the fun environment while allowing Camp Bow Wow® to appropriately determine personality and temperament for placement within the play yards. All campers must be spayed or neutered, current on Rabies, Distemper and Bordatella (for Canine Cough). In the interview you can discuss special pricing packages for camp and the services like showers, shuttles and boarding that Camp Bow Wow® provides.
