Proceeds from the raffle support LI-DOG’s work to open local parks and beaches to our four-legged family members.

Please make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must!–and bring your camera as there are many beautiful photo opportunities on the grounds.

Once again, Old Westbury Gardens is inviting doggie vendors, rescue groups, and animal advocacy organizations to set up booths that weekend. LI-DOG will set up on Sunday, the 24th.

While visiting the gardens, dogs must be on-leash at all times, please no RETRACTABLE leashes, and they are not allowed in any buildings on the grounds. Please also keep them from walking on the flowers.
