Voting ends July 31st. Winners announced August 7th.

Our community needs a PetSafe dog park!

Sanford is a fantastic community that has been working hard to raise funds for a much-needed off-leash dog park to be located at OT Sloan Park. By voting twice each day (once here, once on Facebook) you can help us make this effort a reality! Thank you!!

Check - Your City has completed this!

PetSafe needs to know your community government supports your pursuit of a dog park. To complete this task, notify your civic leaders (ie: mayor, county executive, city manager, Parks and Recreation director) of the contest and encourage them to create an account to upload a letter.

This step is optional, but getting your pups' faces in the media can't hurt. Get in touch with your local news station and print media to rally support for the new park!
