What is your dog doing while you are at work?

Dog enrichment is important and Fenway Bark recognizes the importance of enrichment in its activities and design. Dogs don't need to come to daycare every day for enrichment but a couple of days a week can make a big difference to the mental health of your dog. For more information please read an article from the ASPCA.

Fenway Bark has daycare hours from 6:30 am until 8 pm because we recognize that not everyone works 9 - 5.

Additionally, we offer special evening "daycare" for events at the Bank of America Pavilion, sporting events, etc. Five hours of evening care is $22 (your dog must be fully registered with vaccines and health requirements on file). Enjoy your event, an adult beverage, perhaps dinner and know that you don't have to rush home to let your dog out because, as Chloe and Tony demonstrate in the videos, they are just fine and will be nice and tired when they return to you after your fun evening!

Reservations required.

Fenway Bark’s Shelter Sundays

Back in February, we had an event at Fenway Bark called "Puppy Love" that was a huge success so we decided to continue our efforts to give back to shelters and rescues by offering a space to one shelter each Sunday to help with their efforts and hopefully find some much deserving animals a forever home!

Beginning on Sunday May 22nd, we’ll be featuring a different shelter on Sundays (excluding holidays).

Join us on Sunday May 22 from 1:00 – 3:00PM to meet the adoptable animals from QUINCY ANIMAL SHELTER

The Quincy Animal Shelter is a 100% volunteer-run organization. The Shelter has NO PAID STAFF and relies completely on our volunteers and the community for support. Incorporated in November 1999 as a non-profit Massachusetts charity, and also a recognized charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service code. Since 1999 the Quincy Animal Shelter has placed more than 5,000 cats and dogs into loving and forever homes through out MA and New England.

As a "no kill" shelter, they make every effort to find the right home for every animal in their care. That means they exercise the same ethical and humane treatment of animals in their facility that you would for your own family feline or canine friend. Every animal receives age-appropriate vaccinations and, if old enough, is spayed or neutered before finding its forever family.

Delivering this type of care involves many volunteers, an active and dedicated management, and a lot of money. Their budget runs approximately $100,000 every year in order to keep doing what they do to help the dogs and cats of Quincy.

The capacity at the Shelter is limited to a maximum of 12 dogs and 15 to 25 cats, depending on ages and condition of the cats. Their dream is to eventually find a larger facility so they can continue their mission on a larger scale and serve the continuous needs of the community and the animals.

Quincy Animal Shelter, P.O. Box 690088, Quincy, MA 02269
Phone: 617-376-1349 | Fax: 617-745-5736

Ten percent of any purchase made between 12 and 3 pm on Shelter Sundays will be donated to the featured shelter to further their mission. So even if your home can't accommodate another pup or cat right now, the purchase of your weekly supplies at Fenway Bark during adoption Sundays will benefit their cause.  Make your plans to shop on Sunday at Fenway Bark to benefit the shelter who is featured that day.

Please tell your friends, co-workers and family about Adoption Sundays at Fenway Bark and help homeless animals find new forever homes and raise money toward their mission by doing your weekly errands for your pets!
