Mystic Seaport was proud to be named the most pet-friendly attraction in Connecticut in 2017 by GoPetFriendly.com. But our tails are really wagging now because the two- and four-legged friends behind the travel website are coming to visit!
Amy and Rod Burkert and their two dogs, Ty and Buster, will be at Mystic Seaport to meet fans and make friends from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday June 10. You will find their GoPetFriendly RV parked at the North Entrance and they will be outside the Thompson Building to greet people.
Being a pet-friendly museum has always been important to Mystic Seaport, and to celebrate both the GoPetFriendly designation and Amy and Rod’s arrival, Mystic Seaport is inviting dogs to bring their humans to visit that day! Every dog will receive free admission for one human between 9 a.m. and noon.
Later that day, Rod, Amy, Ty and Buster will be at Red 36 restaurant in downtown Mystic from 2-4 p.m., sponsored by Tito’s Handmade Vodka, for a meet-and-greet/fundraiser for CT Humane Society. $2 from every Tito’s Handmade Vodka cocktail sold will go to benefit Connecticut Humane Society. Bring your pup (or a picture) and the cutest one will win a prize! Amy and Rod will be there to answer your most vexing pet travel questions, discuss the gear they use to keep Ty and Buster safe and happy on the road, do live product demos, hold drawings for some fantastic pet travel gear, and give away killer goodie bags to the first 50 pet lovers who stop by!
