From furry to feathered to even scaly, Harbor View Hotel and the Animal Shelter of Martha’s Vineyard welcome all pet owners and animal lovers to bring their favorite animal friends to the seventh annual Celebration of Pets on Saturday, June 3, from 10 am to noon.

Led by the Black Dog mascot, all are invited to march in a parade around the picturesque Edgartown Lighthouse, returning to the Harbor View Hotel’s wraparound porch, where treats and water will be provided.

For dog owners traveling and looking to celebrate throughout the weekend, the Harbor View Hotel’s Island Dog Package has been specially designed for dog owners. The package includes canine goodies fit for travel, including dog treats, an Orbee ball, a Black Dog squeaky toy, a bandana, a 2017 Vineyard Seadogs calendar, and a travel snack.
