In the Community

Here are several ways Cummings School works with and in our communities.

Paws for People

Tufts Paws for People is an official affiliate of the Delta Society that brings animal visitors to individuals throughout the region. Volunteers visit local nursing homes, schools, libraries, veterans’ facilities and other sites to provide people with animal companionship. Tufts Paws for People is a Community Partner of the national Pet Partners program. More information is available on the Tufts Paws for People website.

Open House

Each year, Cummings School opens up its campus to the general public to give visitors of all ages an inside look at the workings of New England's only veterinary school. More information is available here.

Pet Loss Support

Tufts Pet Loss Support helps pet owners who have lost an animal companion and seeks to serve the community at large by providing resources for people grieving the loss of a pet. Visit Pet Loss Support for more information.

Tufts Dog Park

Located on the campus of Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University, Tufts Dog Park is a 2-acre fenced off-leash park, adjacent to Cummings School Farm, along the Westborough/Grafton town line. Tufts Dog Park is open to licensed, fully vaccinated, and well-behaved dogs and their owners who have registered, agreed to the rules of the park, and paid the required annual fee.
