Eat ice cream and help your furry friends too at Bliss in Cos Cob

Bliss ice cream logoOne ice cream shop in Cos Cob has an even sweeter deal for you, though.  Every Wednesday in June (and possibly all summer if it’s well received), Bliss Ice Cream will donate 30% of its profits to two local organizations helping animals.  They have done this before with singular events, but this is quite the effort with a whole month of fundraising.  The two organizations they are helping are PAWS (rescuing homeless dogs and cats and finding them loving homes) and Adopt a Dog, both important organizations that can really use the money to help protect dogs and cats in the community.
