Metro Pets

By Sharon Gomes Thomas

On walks in the park, looking up has always brought endless fun for my dog Darby. My Irish Setter finds amusement with the rustling of the leaves, squirrels scampering on branches, and birds twittering in their nests. She knows that sometimes, the best finds are above eye-level. And in NY, you will find some interesting pet related places above the main street.

If you head to the third floor of Dance Times Square on alternate Saturdays, you might find your feet hustling, swinging or fox trotting. That’s because Dancing for Animals (www.DancingForAnimals.org) holds dance classes dedicated to bringing people together to dance and to help animals at the same time. All funds raised go to educational programs and financial grants to support animal organizations.
