Stores and restaurants will hold a "Downtown Doggy Day" March 28 on Main Street and adjacent streets to raise money for the Valley Humane Society and to give dog owners a chance to enjoy the downtown with their pets.
Julie Vlahon, events coordinator for the Pleasanton Downtown Association, which is sponsoring the Saturday event, said participating shops and restaurants with dog friendly patios will have special offers and free treats for owners and their animals.
