Strange's Garden Center is hosting a dog friendly event with contests, demonstrations and raffles for terrific prizes. Join us and Kat Simons from Lite 98 in celebrating our fabulous community and local dog organizations. Don't forget to bring your furry friends along, on a leash please.
All raffle proceeds this year will benefit the Richmond Animal League. RAL is the area's oldest non-profit "no-kill" organization committed to reducing the homeless pet population in the Richmond area. RAL provides temporary housing, medical treatment, sterilization, and quality care to over 800 companion animals each year until they are adopted into permanent and loving homes. They will have dogs in the garden available for adoption. You may also bring items to directly help animals in need. We will have a collection box at the event if you would like to donate items from RAL's Wish List.
