The Inaugural Dog Day in the Garden, benefiting the Fayetteville Animal Protection Society!
Dog Day in the Garden features many activities to ensure that you, your family and dog have a belly scratchin’ good time! New scents and experiences will excite on the “Tails on the Trails Walk,” and throughout the day. FAPS will also provide a low-cost microchip clinic* making it easier for your dog to find its way home, if ever lost. Think your pup has what it takes to be crowned Dog of the Garden?
