Winter Artisan Market at the Equinox Holistic Alternative School

  • Equinox Holistic Alternative School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Each year Equinox throws a winter fair to raise money for the school and offer local artisans and organizations a venue to introduce themselves and build their community. This year the fair is on December 3rd and the Artisan Market runs from 11-3.

We expect between 300 and 400 people to attend. Many parents in our community are looking to add furry family members but don’t always think of, or are not aware of small rescues.

Coveted Canines is excited to be a part of this local, community-driven event!

Mona's Puppy PAWTY!

Meet the puppies at Mona’s puppy PAWTY this Saturday October 28th!


Hello! I’m Bear! I’m the oldest and therefore wisest pup around! I like to sit back and contemplate life. My foster mom says I look like a tough puppy because my ears stick straight up but really I’m a softy. I love cuddling and nibbling on toes.

They call me Bandit because I’m going to steal your heart! I’m big bruiser of a puppy but I sure do love snuggling! I’m a little quieter than some of my brothers and sisters but that’s because I’m a gentleman and I’ll wait my turn to be picked up for snuggles.

Well, hello there! Am I not just the most handsome puppy you ever did see? I’m Apollo and I LOVE to cuddle! Some might even say I’m the most cuddly puppy ever! I’m also asking my foster mom and give me kisses and in turn I give her lots too!

Hello, my name is Astro but some say I bear a striking resemblance to a certain rock star named David Bowie. I’m not sure why though! I love to give kisses and I’m always the first one at the gate to greet my foster mom in the morning.

Coffee?! COFFEE?! Did someone say coffee?! Oh, no? I guess snuggles will just have to do! I’m Java and I love running around!! I these cute floppy ears and big brown eyes, and I’m looking for someone who likes snuggles and occasional puppy nibbles! Is that you?!

Did I hear someone is looking for a god amongst puppies? Well, you’ve found him! I’m Zeus and I’m a very nice and laid back puppy. I like to give kisses and play with my siblings, when we play I always win because I’m so strong!

Ooooo! Do you want to cuddle?! I LOVE cuddling!!! I’m Star and it can be hard for me to get all the snuggles I need with all of these brothers around here! They’re bigger and bossier than I am so sometimes I need to be extra loud so I can get my point across. I like everyone and everything and I think I’d love you too!

Hey I’m Max, or as my foster mom calls me “Stop-It!”. I love sitting on laps and watching TV but my real passion lays in biting ankles and spilling water dishes as soon and they’re filled. It’s really fun to watch my foster mom run across the room to clean up my messes, she’s getting pretty quick! With my help, she could be the fastest! If you’re looking to sharpen your cleaning skills we may be a match made in heaven!
