Events

It is through donations and fundraisers that MABTR is able to provide medical care for rescued Bostons.

MABTR participates in events throughout the year in order to educate the public on their existence and rescue efforts. We will continue to do our part by exhibiting at events and participating in fundraisers in order to spread the word. Events are added regularly and posted below by state.  Hope to see you there!
