At the core of our Community Outreach programs is the belief that people and pets belong together. While our adoption programs work to bring people and pets together, our Community Outreach programs work to keep people and pets together. We strive to achieve this goal by offering affordable and accessible animal care resources to pet owners and caretakers in underserved communities.
In 2018, we began programs to deepen our relationships within two of the most underserved communities in Massachusetts – Dorchester and Lowell. The Dorchester program is based on grass roots door to door outreach. The Lowell Partnership for Pets program is based upon partnerships with human service organizations and government entities already established within the community.
