We have a few calendars left over and there’s no charge if you’d like to get one. Not all the stores still have them, so please call Bonnie at 978-922-7190 for more information.

Thank you very much for your support and HUGE thanks to the wonderful stores who helped us out by selling them! We hope you will do business with the kind merchants listed below! 


Our 2018 Calendars are now available! In the spring, we asked for photos of your favorite pets and you really delivered. We received more than 250 photos of your furry (and some feathered) friends. Calendar features 140 beautiful color photos of local pets; many are rescues, including quite a few saved by FOBA. Calendars are $15 each, payable in cash or check in stores, and are available at the locations below.
