(Lincoln, MA, March 21, 2022) – With many pandemic restrictions lifted, Phinney’s, an all-volunteer nonprofit that helps keep people and their beloved pets together, is exhibiting at the outdoor Paws in the Park event, Sunday, May 15 in Sudbury, Mass.
“At Phinney’s, we lend a helping hand to those who can’t afford vet care, pet food and supplies so they don’t have to go through the heartbreaking ordeal of surrendering their pets,” says Morgan Ritz, Phinney’s president.
“Our mission is an important stop-gap for reducing pet homelessness. We look forward to meeting new people and seeing old friends at Paws in the Park. We'll be talking about how Phinney's addresses the need of veterinary treatment and pet supplies that low-income people in Massachusetts face. And we'll be supporting the good work Save a Dog does in sheltering and placing dogs and cats into loving homes,” Ritz adds.
Paws in the Park takes place rain or shine from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Longfellow’s Wayside Inn, 72 Wayside Road, Sudbury, Mass. This family- and dog-friendly event includes a group walk (taking place from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.), an agility tryout ring, a parade of adoptable dogs, doggie games, a raffle and silent auction, food and more, including non-profit exhibitors like Phinney’s as well as vendors. For more information, including admissions rates, visit Paws in the Park website.
