A local dog treat company in La Crosse is getting set for a unique, four-legged Easter egg hunt this weekend.
Wuffy Handmade Dog Treats is organizing its 3rd annual Easter Egg Hunt for dogs from 1-3 p.m. Saturday at Myrick Park.
Jaclyn Cardin, who owns Wuffy with her wife, Ashley Magee, told Z93 they started the company because they love dogs.
“We wanted to have dog treats available locally, fresh made dog treats, so we’ve been we’ve been doing that for the last three years,” Cardin told the Z93 Morning Buzz. “We also love giving back, so we try to do a lot of donating to the Humane Society, to local rescues, and then having fun events like this one.”
Cardin said they’ll have 2,000 eggs on Saturday.
“We also have a bunch of golden eggs that we’ll have out there,” she noted. “So, we’ve increased the number of sponsors helping out so the golden eggs are filled with great prizes and should be a lot of fun.”
Cardin and Magee are both from western Wisconsin originally but Wuffy got started in New York in 2017, selling at Brooklyn Farmers Markets.
Now, they oven bake their dog treats in small batches in a commercial kitchen in La Crosse. Each signature treat contains five or less ingredients and they’re also 100% grain, dairy and gluten-free.
The egg hunt for dogs event has sold out the last two years and they’re expecting a big crowd again this weekend.
Tickets to the event are sold out.
But, you can order Wuffy’s treats online, or at Johnson Livings in La Crescent, Big River K9 in Onalaska, and catch them at local farmers’ markets.
