What's New at DW

3430 Wescott Woodlands
Eagan, MN  55123

Dakota Woodlands is proud to announce the arrival of six new residents to the shelter:

Jewel the Seahorse
Splash the Dolphin
Speedy the Turtle
Sunny the yellow fish
Mr. Pebbles the purple fish
Nemo, the striped fish (of course)
all named by the children at DW! 

The six new residents moved into the children's playroom one cold snowy weekend in January as a result of the creative efforts of a mother and daughter team, Jeannie Bridgeman, our Finance Specialist, and her talented daughter Emily Eck.  Emily is an Art and Design Student at Alexandria Technical College.
