Safe Paws 2017 – FREE
Sponsored by the Espoma Company
Pet owners are invited to learn about a outdoor pet safety initiative Sunday, April 9 at Primex Garden Center. Wagging tails will enjoy the Safe Paws event at the garden center from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Safe Paws, sponsored in partnership with Espoma and Primex Garden Center, will include local dog rescue groups, adoptable dogs and cats, and more from local vendors.
**All dogs in attendance must be leashed, tagged and properly vaccinated.**
The Espoma Company, pioneer in natural & organic gardening solutions since 1929, recently launched Safe Paws at The Philadelphia Flower Show and received an overwhelming response.
The Safe Paws campaign aims to equip responsible pet owners with tips to keep pets safe outdoors by avoiding the dangers of common lawn hazards. Learn more about the Espoma Safe Paws initiative here.
