Exciting News for Wiggly Field Dog Park

The WNA/Wiggly Field Advisory Committee is thrilled to report that Family Pet Animal Hospital has signed on to be an ongoing Veterinary Co-Sponsor of Wiggly Field, along with long-time sponsor and supporter, Lincoln Park Dog & Cat Clinic.

Family Pet has agreed to donate $3,000 annually to the park, to be used for ongoing maintenance, waste bags, and general supplies for the park.

We will be ordering a NEW kiosk for the park, to be used for WNA, park and community notices. As mentioned in the last Board minutes, the park's kiosk has withered away after 21 years…Give them a visit with your dog at 2645 N. Sheffield
