KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – Radio Systems Corporation has allocated $100,000 through Legacy Parks to support the city of Oak Ridge in building a dog park.
“At Radio Systems, we are always looking for ways we can give back to our community,” said Randy Boyd, Founder and CEO of Radio Systems Corporation, maker of the PetSafe Brand. “We’ve seen the incredibly positive impact dog parks have made on communities and we are excited to continue this effort in East Tennessee. We know Oak Ridgers and their dogs will enjoy a PetSafe dog park.”
PetSafe will partner with the City to build the dog park within Big Turtle Park on the west end of the city.
“We are delighted with PetSafe’s decision to help us build a dog park in Oak Ridge, and greatly appreciate the company’s investment in our community,” said Oak Ridge City Manager Mark Watson. “As the owner of three dogs, I look forward to bringing my own pets to the new park on a regular basis.”
According to Recreation and Parks Director Josh Collins, the donation helps achieve a long-term community goal. “The Oak Ridge Dog Park Committee has followed with great interest the construction of PetSafe dog parks in the Knoxville area over last few years, and recently met with Knox County officials to discuss best practices from the county’s construction. Construction of an off leash area has long been a desire of the community and will be a major addition to our park system.”
