Wald Research Fund

Donations to the Wald Research Fund will be set aside to support organizational, student or faculty led research in the area of Animal Assisted Therapy. Donations are tax deductible

Stanley H. Wald was the founder of Pets & People Foundation and a long time resident of Newton, MA. Stanley believed deeply in the principles of “people therapy through pets”, sharing his Corgi named Shadow with so many. He was also passionate about providing data driven research around Animal Assisted Therapy (AAT).

In his memory, the Wald family along with Pets & People have created the Wald Research Fund from which an annual donation will be made to support organizational, student or faculty led research in the area of AAT. Research in the field of AAT is as important today as it was back in the early days of Pets & People. If you would  like to help support Stanley’s passion for this type of research, please donate to this fund.


Sally Jean Volunteer Fund

Donations to the Sally Jean Volunteer Fund will be set aside to sponsor special volunteer engagement activities for Pet & People members. Donations are tax deductible.

The Sally Jean Volunteer Fund was established in memory of Sally Jean Alexander, a long-term member of the Pets & People board, and the motivating force for our organization for over 20 years. The volunteers of Pets & People were very special to Sally Jean and they are the heart of the organization today! Sally Jean passed away in January 2013 and her strong presence is missed. 

In recognition of her dedication to the volunteers of Pets & People, the Sally Jean Volunteer Fund was created to sponsor special member engagement activities for Pets & People volunteers.
