Time Out New York picks the Festival!!

The Badass Fall Festival is a large-scale street festival for the local Brooklyn community - and beyond!  There will be activities for adults, kids and dogs - including a pitbull kissing booth sponsored by Mr. Bones and Co, an agility course with The Doggie Academy, wonderful shopping with local craft vendors, amazing food, live music, Smuttynose Beer specials at Canal Bar, as well as a Badass Raffle, and much more.

It also serves as an opportunity to invite past adopters to come visit with their animals, reunite with their rescuers, and raise money and awareness for other animals in need.  THIS EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE.
