As you stroll through the Town of Ridgefield, get to know the Bow WOW Art Dogs.  Each bowutiful art dog is sponsored by area businesses and paired with a local artist to add a one-of-a-kind themed dog to our dog pack for your enjoyment!  Simply look for the QR Code on the sponsor plaques and you will be led to the auction site. Having trouble? Stop by RPAC Gallery at 410 Main St. and they will assist you.
