Who is the contact person for organizing this? I've got a friend with experience who won this grant contest last year for Texarkana, TX. She's offered her help for us.

Kelly Kesinger

Only four days left to vote. Vote twice a day, once here, once at

Brandy Moore

Hi from Texarkana. I voted for you today. :)

Hope to see you tonite @ 6 at Trails Library to make the final push in obtaining a $25,000 grant for the Old Drum Dog Park.

Jay Pattiz

Thanks for encouragement Pat! Warrensburg, MO is small community too, less than 20,000 population. We are home of Old Drum Dog "Man's Best Friend" still without a Dog Park.

david kesinger

Thanks Pat for the encouragement. All anyone can do is give their best. That way, no regrets.

Pat Dannatt

Don't count yourself out of the running yet. North Platte, Nebraska, recently won $12,000 from Troybilt in competition with four other much larger communities. Our closest competitor was Newport News, Virginia. If I recall, Wikipedia listed Newport News' population at about 180,000 - North Platte's is about 25,000. Read all the tips PetSafe suggests, get some videos of your project posted, along with cute videos of pets, anything to personalize your project. Then send a link to this page to everyone you know and ask them to send the link to everyone in their address book. You can do this! I'll be back voting every day that I can.

Just down the hill and less than a mile from the still-standing county courthouse where the "man's best friend" speech by George Graham Vest was made.

Rachel Clements

We NEED this! How can the city where the saying, "A dog is a man's best friend." came from not have a dog park?! We of all cities should have one!

david kesinger

twice a day, everyday, before the deadline

Scott Umphrey

Thanks to everyone who has taken time out of their bust day to vote. We really appreciate it, and so do our dogs! S-

We have been working very hard to finish the dog park but it will take the dog loving community to make the park a reality. Vote today and everyday!
