Supporter Spotlight: The Story Behind the Boxes

Boutwell Owens Thank You

A huge thank you to Boutwell, Owens, a Fitchburg-based printing and packaging company and the creative minds behind our Service Dog “stuffy” packaging.

For the last three years, NEADS has honored Service Dogs with a Service Dog “stuffy” package. The first one, in 2015, told the story of Service Dog Rescue, complete with a stuffed toy dog and storybook. The creative folks at Boutwell, Owens brought their special talents to the table, turning an ordinary packing box into Rescue’s dog house. This was followed by a fire truck for Service Dog Blaze in 2016 and ski house for Service Dog Earle in 2017. This year’s stuffy package pays tribute to all Service Dogs, with options for black and yellow labs and capes for Service Dogs, Service Dogs in Training, and Hearing Dogs. Boutwell, Owens again came through with perfect cottage to house them.
