The Richmond SPCA’s 2011-2012 Mascot, Lottie Dula, is on the move to pet-friendly places around Richmond. We’ve outfitted her with a GoPro video camera so you can see her perspective on the world.
This week Lottie is enjoying the beautiful outdoors in a treasured Richmond location that you too can visit with your dog.
While pets are not ordinarily alowed in the Garden, on special evenings throughout the summer, leashed pets can take a stroll through Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden with their human companions during Fidos After Five. Bring your dogs for a walk in the Garden from 5 to 9 p.m. on the second Thursday of each month, June through August. You can also look forward to wine tastings ($10 ticket in addition to admission), outdoor dining and shopping.
Make plans to join us for each of these evenings, starting next Thursday, June 14. Stop by the Richmond SPCA table in the Robins Vistors Center where our volunteers will provide you with doggy waste bags as well as information about our programs and upcoming events.
