Safe Paws is a national program the Espoma Company started about a year ago to promote healthy lawn care around the country in an effort to counteract the rise in pet cancer.  Espoma produces an organic lawn fertilizer that is safe for our children and pets, and does not use any harmful chemicals.  To help spread awareness of this growing concern in pet healthcare, we have invited the Espoma Company and some of our local businesses for a day of fun and education for you and your pet!
