FALMOUTH, MA – Earlier this week, Dogs for Better Lives’ Northeast Campus (DBL) was honored to be included as winners in The Enterprise’s fifth annual Best of the Upper Cape Awards. DBL received first place in the pet sitting category and third place in the best charity category.
Earlier this summer, voters across the Cape had the opportunity to cast their vote for their favorite local businesses and organizations. The top winner in each category was announced at the Best of the Upper Cape Gala on Tuesday night at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth.
“To be voted as best pet sitting business and as one of the top 3 charities is such an honor,” said Sarah McCracken, Executive Director, Northeast Region. “We are thrilled to be a part of the Upper Cape community and are eager to continue to deepen our relationships locally.”
DBL officially opened its northeast campus in Falmouth in April of this year. The facility provides training space for our Assistance Dogs in Training as well as boarding and daycare services for the public. The northeast campus makes it possible to provide more Assistance Dogs to people in need across the eastern U.S., without relying on costly cross-country transportation from our west coast campus.
The DBL boarding and daycare facility provides a comfortable and safe home away from home for dogs living in or visiting the area.
“We’re so proud to be voted as first place for pet sitting in the upper Cape,” said Emilia Wenner, Boarding Manager. “Receiving this award is a testament to our caring and committed boarding and daycare staff as well as our amazing clients,” added Wenner.
