The Pet Fest and Walk for Animals is an annual event orchestrated by the 503(c)3 non-profit, the New Bedford Coalition for Animals. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, with 100% of the profits going to support our diverse programs that benefit the health and well being of animals in our community. A South Coast tradition, this event is in its 20th year running, and is attended by upwards of 600 people and 400 dogs. The day includes a two mile fundraising walk, over 50 vendors, and interactive demonstrations in the center ring. The event gets bigger and better every year!
We are inviting local businesses to assist in that goal by sponsoring the event and/or t-shirts. By donating to our cause, you can reap a variety of sponsorship benefits, as detailed below. Our most popular option involves sponsorship of the event's t-shirts, where your business's name, and at some sponsorship levels, logo, will be included on the t-shirts that will be distributed to every walker at the fundraiser. This invitation is a great opportunity to support a hard-working, all volunteer charity, as well as increase your visibility in the community; making for a mutually beneficial partnership.
Pet Fest will be held on Sunday, May 5, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Buttonwood Park, 745 Rockdale Avenue in New Bedford. The fundraising walk will commence at 12 p.m. and the event is held rain or shine. Interested in event or t-shirt sponsorship? Complete either of the forms below to participate:
