New Outdoor Allergy Alert

Cats and Dogs are relocating to the streets of Stamford for the summer with the help of the Downtown Special Services District. Although the summer's much anticipated sculpture exhibit kicks off in June, you can take a sneak peek by visiting the Artist's Studio at 1 Landmark Square (corner of Broad and Atlantic), which is open to the public.

This year, the exhibit is called "It's Reigning Cats & Dogs" and features five foot tall fiberglass models - one cat model and one dog model - that will be customized by artists from all over the tri-state area. Artists have designed and submitted mock-ups of the city's new residents: 17 cats and 23 dogs.

The not-so-furry friends will be on display all summer and then auctioned off (after a little dusting off), and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Friends of Felines, Outreach to Pets in Need and the Stamford Dog Park.

You can see the event poster, complete with pictures of a few of our new summertime neighbors, by clicking here. For more information, visit the DSSD website or email
