LULU THE PIG IS HOME!
Looking for something to do with your kids ?
Lulu the Pot-bellied pig is enjoying her summer home at the DAMV.
Gather the kids, the grandparents, friends and neighbors and come out to the DAMV and visit, Lulu, the pot-bellied pig. Lulu loves visitors. Especially visitors with food! Her favorite foods include green peppers, watermelon, grapes, unsalted peanuts, apples, peaches, pears and TOMATOES (she LOVES tomatoes), HOWEVER, as with all mini pot-bellied pigs, Lulu must watch her weight; so, please only feed her a few pieces during your visit.
After feeding Lulu, be sure to also visit our feathered friends Lizzy, Lilly, Lucy and Licorice. Lizzy is a Silkie. She has fluffy plumage, which feels like silk. Like Lulu, our chickens also like to be fed. They will eat cheerios, birdseed, raisins, lettuce as well as fruits like peaches, bananas, watermelon and cooked pasta (which btw, is super funny to watch Lilly eat). Visitors are welcome to go into the pens and pet and feed the animals (just close the doors behind you).
