DOGwood Day

August 6, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

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

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 62 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.

Event highlights include demonstrations, vendors, bone bar, canine crafts (paw print painting, lick n’ paint, tye dye a leash), music, beer & food tent, bone bar and more!

10am: Event Begins (booths, crafts, bone bar opens)
10:30am: Heat Stroke chat with Companion Animal Hospital
12pm: Canine First Aid Chat with Companion Animal Hospital
