It would be so wonderful to have a safe place to take our fur-babies so they can run and play and socialize with other dogs. We have awesome, responsible people in our community that truly care for their dogs. A dog park is something we have needed in our community for a very long time now. A safe place to take dogs after work and let them run out their energy so everyone can get a good nights sleep.

It would be wonderful to have a safe place for the dogs in our community to socialize and play! There are so many pet lovers here! I always see people walking their dogs. I have 2 young dogs myself! It would be AWSOME to have a dog park near by!

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.
