Holiday Wreath Fundraiser!


We’re bringing back our annual holiday wreath sale for 2019!  Last year these wreaths were so popular, we sold out far in advance of the holidays.  Only a limited number of wreaths available, so get your order in early. Fresh greens with a dog or cat theme and four different bow colors to choose from.  Everyone that sees these Dog and Cat themed wreaths wants one!

These make great gifts! Orders will be accepted through December 1st and will be shipped the middle of December, just in time for the holidays!
