Pope Memorial Humane Society, for its annual “Eat for Pete’s Sake” event this year, is encouraging supporters to dine out on September 17 at local restaurants that have supported PMHS in the past. A partial list is below.

In past years, participating restaurants donated a portion of the proceeds to PMHS, but in light of the challenges facing the service industry during the pandemic, PMHS is not asking restaurants to donate to them this year.

Atlantic Baking Company, Blue Sky Cantina, Craignair Inn & Restaurant, Fresh & Co., Good Tern Co-op/Hole in the Wall Bagels, In Good Company, Park Street Grille, Primo Restaurant, St. George River Café, Suzuki’s Sushi, Thomaston Cafe, Waterworks Restaurant
