  2. I run Fairy DogParents, a 501c3 charity that assists MA families at risk of surrending their dogs when they cannot afford food or general, chronic or acute vet care. We are sponsoring the South Shore Pet Expo in Marshfield, MA Sunday June 3rd. This family and pet friendly event is free to the public and fun for everyone! Come enjoy live animal demonstrations, visit with our vendors and possibly meet a future furry family member during our adoptable dog mutt strut! Pony rides, interactive dog events, live music and more.

    Is there a way to post this event and our organization via your calendar?
