We are pleased to announce the official opening of the new Dogwood Garden & Pet Center. The new greenhouse offers a large assortment of hanging baskets, ornamental grasses, annuals and perennials, as well as garden décor and accessories, flowering plants and home accents for year-round decorating needs. A wide array of pet supplies and unique animal gift offerings are also available.
After just one year of facilitating the adoption of hundreds of puppies and kittens to loving families through the partnership with The Anti-Cruelty Society, Lambs Farm will now exclusively offer rescue puppies and kittens for adoption. The nominal adoption fee charged will be shared with The Anti-Cruelty Society to support their expenses associated with the transport, spaying/neutering, and inoculations required for the rescue animals. View the current adoption list here.
“Partnering with Lambs Farm has proven to be a rewarding experience. We are thrilled to expand our relationship by providing their 100% rescue-based operation with adoptable cats and dogs,” said Dr. Robyn Barbiers, President of the Anti-Cruelty Society.
“Our Pet Shop, the first non-sheltered business in the country to employ people with developmental disabilities, has provided a wonderful growth opportunity for more than 53 years by offering meaningful employment in a nurturing environment. Through our partnership with The Anti-Cruelty Society, the men and women we serve will continue to share that environment of love and acceptance with the puppies and kittens for which they provide care,” said Dianne Yaconetti, Lambs Farm President and CEO.
On June 14 and 15 from 11:00am to 2:00pm, we will host a special Adoption Day event with The Anti-Cruelty Society at the new Pet Center. Stop by to meet representatives of The Anti-Cruelty Society and some of their older dogs in need of loving homes.
