Pet owners don’t have to leave their furry friends behind when they head out to celebrate the holidays this season. Here are five pet-friendly events where animals can join in the revelry.

Attend an ugly Christmas sweater party with your dog in Sharon

Picture this: Pet owners drinking wine while their dogs receive massages. This really will all happen at the “Ugly Sweater & Sip Social” benefiting PAWS New England at the Boston Wine School in Sharon on Dec. 1 from noon to 2 p.m. Both humans and dogs are encouraged to wear ugly Christmas sweaters to earn extra raffle tickets. The former will receive wine discounts, free professional digital photos with their pets, and free wine-shaped dog treats.
