The SPCA Dog Weekend

For one weekend only, dogs are welcome to join the Winter Wander fun! On Nov. 18-20, your fur-faced friend is invited to walk the trail. And if you don't have a four-legged friend, the Charlottesville Albemarle SPCA will be joining our Winter Wander festivities, so you can have an official meet & greet with some of their fun-loving K9 companions.
