A Beautiful Partnership: Wellesley-Natick Veterinary Hospital and Natick Days Community Festival
The end of summer means different things to different people. Here at Wellesley-Natick Veterinary Hospital, the arrival of September has us looking forward to the Natick Days Community Festival. We couldn’t be more excited to participate in this family friendly community celebration!
All About Natick Days Community Festival
Natick Days Community Festival is an annual event centered on youth groups and nonprofit organizations. The festival is held at Natick Common and includes plenty of food, live music, games, kid-friendly activities, and much more all packed into one fun-filled day.
Besides being an exciting and popular event for the community (over 8,000 people are expected to attend), Natick Days is also a fundraising event for local nonprofits, youth teams, and service organizations. In 2017, over $25,000 was raised to help support these important community-building programs.
Come and See Us!
At Wellesley-Natick Veterinary Hospital, we’re proud to support the Natick Days Festival each year by sponsoring a vendor table that’s full of useful information and fun prizes. Stop by to say hello or to pick up a food measuring cup, frisbee, pet toy, or treat donated by one of our amazing vendors.
Besides being a wonderful way to connect with people, sponsoring a table and volunteering our time at the festival is one of the many ways we give back to our community. In addition to the various table sponsorships, all proceeds collected at Natick Days go to local nonprofit organizations.
For many pet owners, bringing your four-legged friend along is one of the best parts of any outdoor festival. If you plan on bringing your dog to Natick Days, keep the following safety tips in mind:
- Keep your dog leashed and close by at all times.
- Plan ahead for pet heat safety. Bring a bowl and bottled water for your dog, and take frequent breaks in the shade.
- Take your dog to a quiet location for potty breaks, away from the crowd; don’t forget to scoop the poop!
- Some dogs simply don’t do well in a crowded, public setting. Dogs who are anxious, shy, aggressive, or those who aren’t comfortable around other adults, children, or pets are better off at home.
Please call the team at Wellesley-Natick Animal Hospital if you have any questions about our involvement in Natick Days. We hope to see you there!
