Dakin Humane Society Hosts Fundraiser for Barks and Brews | New
EASTHAMPTON, MA (WGGB / WSHM) – The Dakin Humane Society hosted a Barks & Brews fundraiser for residents of western Massachusetts and their furry friends. The fundraiser took place in Easthampton at the Fort Hill Brewery.
The funds raised will help offset the cost of housing, treating and caring for thousands of animals each year.
It will also benefit a number of programs and services such as the Pet Food Assistance Program, the Plus Clinic, the Vaccination Clinic, and the Community Sterilization and Sterilization Clinic.
At the event, there was a hot dog tasting competition for the puppies. The dogs were able to cool off in the splash zone and had mini dog training sessions.
Western Mass News jumped into the action, and we spoke with Stacy Price, Director of Development and Marketing at Dakin, who shared her enthusiasm for bringing pets and their owners back to the event, all in support of a good cause.
“Dakin is very keen on keeping people and animals together and celebrating this bond that we share. So we wanted to have an event that would allow people to just be with their dogs and be with their friends at the same time and have a good time, ”Price said.
