Paws at the Beach Pet Festival on Cape Cod

The first-ever Paws at the Beach Pet Festival comes to Cape Cod’s Craigville Beach, in Centerville, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., May 10. The event is sponsored by the Cold Noses Foundation, which funds critical spay and neuter services, veterinary care, education, emergency relief and more on behalf of animals worldwide.

Visitors to this family-friendly event can find a new pet, fill out adoption forms, enjoy music and shop from local vendors. “We hope lots of people will join us for our first annual pet festival on Craigville Beach as we celebrate the start of summer with a great event for dogs and the people who love them,” says Thalia Haseotes, president of Cold Noses Foundation.

In addition to crafts, food, raffles and giveaways, the K-9 Unit of the Barnstable Police will be on hand for demos. “It’s going to be a great day, and a chance to enjoy the last weekend that dogs are allowed on the beach until fall,” says Haseotes.

Cost: $5 for those over age 5. Location: Craigville Beach, 997 Craigville Beach Rd., Centerville. For more information, call 508-494-9303 or visit
