Owney the dog, the first unofficial postal mascot, and the National Postal Museum invite families and children to join them for their “Dog Days of Summer Family Festival.” Head on out to the Postal Museum on July 29, 2017, from 10 am to 3 pm, to learn about the roles that animals play in our postal system.
There will be plenty of other activities for children, including a scavenger hunt, opportunities to learn Owney’s story through screenings and puppet-making, and free ice pops while supplies last. Sergeant Micah Jones from the Amtrak Police Department and his canine companion Summer will also be demonstrating their patrol routine at 11:30 am and 2 pm in the Atrium.
Plus, for anyone looking for a furry companion of their own, you can meet with the Humane Rescue Alliance, City Dogs Rescue, and Homeward Trails Animal Rescue, who will be holding an adoption fair on the museum’s outdoor terrace!
When: July 29, 2017, 10 am-3 pm
