TRUM FIELD | SEPTEMBER 24TH, 2023 11 AM - 3 PM (It's free!)
Presented by Every Pet Counts
The Somerville Dog Festival is a free event and the only one of its kind in the country. The goals of the event are two-fold: to educate and promote healthy, happy pet ownership and activities, thereby lowering the need for relinquishment and euthanasia of animals due to behavior problems, and to raise funds for those in need within our community.
The festival is an opportunity to try new things with your best friend. Training, games, a day in the sun (or rain!), getting your steps in together and enjoying the city and your neighbors and friends for a good cause.
Remember, there are no calories at a dog festival, so enjoy the food trucks and treat snacking!
HELP PETS AND PEOPLE
The Somerville Dog Festival is organized by the Somerville Foundation for Animals, which works to make sure no one ever has to choose between caring for themselves and their pets.Through your donations and through our sponsors' generosity, the Festival raises money for the Foundation's Every Pet Counts Care Van, providing free veterinary care to the pets of homeless and at-risk veterans, elderly, and families throughout Eastern Massachusetts.
This year we’re raising funds for a mobile x-ray machine, and for medical supplies to increase our ability to care for these MVPs (most valuable pets).
EVENTS & FEATURES
The festival runs from 11:00 am until 3:00 pm, rain or shine. Check back for frequent updates. We hope to see you there!
