Proceeds from Pups and Pints will help place service animals with people in need and care for animals in training.. We are very excited to have Pups and Pints at the Hadley Young Men’s club. We are looking forward to this being an annual event. Please help us make that a reality. If you would like to be part of planning next year’s festival we encourage feedback, suggestions and event planning volunteers.

Guidelines for a safe and fun event
NO under age drinking will be permitted. If you are caught drinking underage you will be removed from the festival with no refunds. If you are caught giving a drink to someone underage you will be removed from the festival with no refunds.
Dogs must have current rabies vaccine!
NO aggressive dogs will be allowed. In order to make the festival safe and fun for all we ask that you leave any dog that does not get along other dogs, kids or people at home. It will be stressful for that dog, you and others. Aggressive dogs will be asked to leave. Owners are welcome back after their dog is home, make sure to get a stamp for re entry!
NO flexi leashes. 4’-6’ leashes are required.
NO loose dogs. Dogs must be on leash and under owner’s control at all times.
One dog per handler. To help avoid unwanted situations we are asking that people only have one dog. If you own multiple dogs you would like to have at the festival bring a friend who would like to be in charge of your other dog.
Not every dog gets along with every other dog. Be aware of your dog and others around you. If you notice stiff postures with tails erect and unblinking stares distract your dog with clapping or happy voice and remove them from the other dog.
In case of a dog fight the dogs will be asked to leave. The owners are welcome to come back to the festival after bringing their dogs home.
Clean up after your dog! We have special permission to run this festival. If you would like to see it continue we have to make sure the venue is completely free of dog poop when we are done! If you are caught leaving dog poop you will be charged a $5 donation to Heroes as a clean up fee. aught drinking underage you will be removed from the festival with no refunds. If you are caught giving a drink to someone underage you will be removed from the festival with no refunds.
Have fun and be respectful of others. We are very excited to have Pups and Pints at the Hadley Young Men’s club. We are looking forward to this being an annual event. Please help us make that a reality. If you would like to be part of planning next year’s festival we encourage feedback, suggestions and event planning volunteers.
This year we have two very special service dog teams we will be raising money for.
Ryan and Roxy were matched earlier this year. Like many veterans he had a hard time in crowded areas and experienced sever anxiety attacks. Since Roxy has become part of his life it has changed. He can now go out into crowded areas to do grocery shopping, have dinner with friends and live an independent life.
We have raised $2,500 so far. we are looking to raise the last $7,000 to cover the cost of Roxy's training and care. To support Ryan and Roxy look for the special raffle dedicated to them or drop a donation in the jar at the Heroes info booth.
Daniel and Oliver were matched with the help of the News 40 Surprise Squad in August. Since then Jess Mattson has been working with Dan to teach Oliver the tasks he will need to help him. Dan had searched for two years without finding the right match. Since he has had Oliver it has changed his life. Bringing his depression down to about zero, relieving his loneliness and helping with nightmares and PTSD symptoms as well as keeping him safe walking down stairs, on curbs and cross walks. We are working on raising $9,500 for this team. Look for their special Handmade wooden Flag case raffle at Pups and Pints.
