Past Events

Veteran's Resource Expo
Pets for Vets Erie attended the 2014 Veterans' Resource Expo, sponsored by Senator Sean Wiley, in Erie. The event had a great turnout and there was a lot of interest in the Pets for Vets program. It was a great way to spread the word and network with other Veteran organizations in the community.
Lola, one of the long-term ANNA Shelter dogs, also attended the event. She was a hit with the crowd (people kept coming back to our table just to spend time with her!) and a wonderful ambassador for the program. As a result of this event, we were invited to several more events!
