2017 marked the eighth year the Taos Community has come together for a very important cause.
Dog Days Through the Years
The History of Dog Days
The event was conceived in 2009, when “Mattress Mary” Domito bought a raffle ticket in support of a creative project by Taos writer and filmmaker Allegra Huston. Domito’s winning ticket earned her a free concert by local favorites Bone Orchard. “I wanted to share it, and why not raise some money for a great cause at the same time?” Domito recalled. Bone Orchard’s Carol Morgan-Eagle helped with organization, and the first Dog Days fundraiser brought in $4,400 for Stray Hearts.
Fast forward to 2015’s Dog Days VI which raised $32,000!
