DOGwood Day

August 7 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

In 1961, Co-Founders Bob Terese and Corinne Owen were determined to start a business where adults with developmental disabilities could thrive. They ultimately decided to create a pet shop due the unconditional love and forgiving nature of animals. Now 60 years later, we believe our Co-Founders would be proud knowing we are still carrying out their vision as Lambs Farm Participants continue to find meaningful work in what is now our Dogwood Garden & Pet Center and help thousands of people find their best friend with four paws.

We invite you to join us in celebrating this milestone and the very special connection between mankind and dogs at Lambs Farm DOGwood Day – 1 Day of Puppy Love!

Admission is free to visitors and dogs.
