SUDS Walks in Sunnyside Post Mile

President of SUDS Rick and his pooch Matilda walked alongside fellow SUDS members and Sunnyside residents in the second annual Sunnyside Post Mile! This year proceeds from this event benefitted local organizations including WOODSIDE on the Move, Sunnyside Shines, The Skillman Project, Sunnyside Artists and SUDS! We are very grateful and honored to receive funds to help keep our park safe and clean for the entire community. We will also be donating part of the funds received to the Port Athority K9 Patrol dogs to provide for emergency trauma kits for injured dogs.

10/5/13 Adopt-a-thon @ SUDS Dog Run

SUDS will have its first major event on Saturday, October 5th, from 12pm-4pm, an ADOPTATHON.

We are partnering with an excellent Queens based rescue group called FOUR PAWS SAKE ( and NEED VOLUNTEERS to help set up, break down and work with the dogs and cats during the event.

If you can spare a few hours that day to volunteer please contact Jeannette Remak @
It’s important because the more volunteers we have the more dogs 4 Paws Sake can bring.

Remember, many of our own dogs came from similar situations, and there was someone there to pitch in and donate a few hours to get them adopted to you. Let’s all do our part to return love:)

We will also have CANINE GOOD CITIZEN TRAINING and Kristie from PAWSITIVE DOG TRAINING to provide help and training tips for our own pets.

As we will need the entire space, the dog run will be closed from 11am-4pm that day for the event.

Hope to see many of you there:)
