NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ Some people attending the recent Wickford Art Festival found themselves responding to overheated dogs as much as the displays of paintings and other creative efforts lining village streets.
Animal control officer Holly Duffany says an officer at the police station told her that he and others working the eventâ€™s safety detail were approached by concerned people reporting dogs who were suffering in the intense heat.
â€śThe police located the dogs and checked on their wellbeing,â€ť Duffany notes.
