Camp Dogwood has been a part of the Chicagoland area dog-business community for almost 15 years. We have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many of the great businesses and groups that do good for dogs in the region. Every camp session has a fundraising component (or multiple ones ) and we’ve given back to the community over $20,000 over the years.
The following businesses and organizations are “Friends of Dogwood.” Some links represent businesses and groups that have donated products or services to Camp Dogwood. Others represent animal welfare groups that Camp Dogwood has supported over the years through fundraising efforts and donations.
We encourage you to support the “Friends of Dogwood” - their products, services and efforts are consistent with the Camp Dogwood mission of the bond, the dog, and the community.
