Camp Bow Wow offers free daycare!

Hey SUDS family,

The folks over at Camp Bow Wow reached out to us to let us know about their great program to offer free daycare for dogs adopted from a shelter in 2012!  This is a great opportunity to let Camp Bow Wow help you transition your newly adopted dog to your home.  Read all about it and the approved shelters on their Facebook page:


Take Care,


Missing Dog – Shiba Inu

There’s a new Missing Dog poster up in the neighborhood. This poster was on 48 ave. & 39 St.

“We lost our dog on June 4. She is a friendly dog. She’s also sick and is on three different types of medication. She’s in need of monthly vet visits. We miss her so much. Anybody with info please call. There’s also reward. Thank you.”


2 year old, brown/black/white, Shiba Inu, 30lbs, responds to “Scarlet Cruz”


Jun, SUDS dog passes away.

Jun was owned by Ai, a long time SUDS member. She was 13 and passed away on Friday.

She had a lot of personality and was absolutely the sweetest pup in the park. She will be definitely be missed. Jun (& Kelly) was a fixture @ the park for the better part of a decade.

She has earned a place of honor in the SUDS Hall of Fame.




Lou Lodati construction update.

Exactly one year to the day after Community Board 2 unanimously approved a Dog Run to be constructed in Lou Lodati Park we have some updates at to the timeline:

Construction will hopefully soon begin at Lou Lodati Park. The latest information received by Rick, SUDS’ president, is that the registration for the dog run is awaiting finalization from the Comptrollers office. That process should take about a month during which time the Queens Parks Dept. will meet with contractors to hammer out a construction date. Let’s all keep our fingers crossed that our years of patience will soon pay off!
