WELCOME BACK PATCHES
WE MISSED YOU!
Patches has returned to his forever home Thursday, May 28th, 2020, despite Stevens Park still being closed to the Public due to COVID-19 from an extended recovery of his unfortunate injuries last November. The last few months Patches has been in good hands and has come back to his ‘Forever Home’ looking even brighter than before! Once Stevens Park reopens we hope everyone will enjoy his presence and keep a watch over him! Patches is a bright spot in Stevens Park that no one can help but smile when they see him at the entrance of Welsh’s Station Playground. We hope Patches continues to spread his ‘sunshine’ to all visit him once Stevens Park reopens!
Patches is part of the Paws on Parade - a public art exhibit by the Lancaster County Council of the Arts. For a map of all the dogs in Lancaster County go to www.lccarts.net/paws!
