Each year Pets & People sets up a booth at various dog related events in the Boston area to spread the word about our work and encourage new volunteers to join Pets & People or donate to the foundation.

As you can see from the booth to the left, it’s always festive and we have plenty of four-footed volunteers helping spread the word too! If you have an event you would like us to attend, or would like to represent us at one of these events, please contact us at events@petsandpeoplefoundation.org
