City Nominations and Phase 1 Voting from May 7th-June 7th. Finalists Announced: June 13th.

Our community needs a PetSafe dog park!

In the heart of Vermont and home to the major tourist and recreation destinations of the Green Mountain State, Waterbury welcomes the dogs of thousands of visitors and residents alike. Plans for an off-leash dog area have been in the works for years, but a devastating tropical storm, Irene, put those plans on hold. Waterbury's revitalization is based in the enduring strength of the community, and the dog park will be evidence of our community spirit!

We would love to have an off-leash dog park in our town. It is a small town in Vermont but has a large number of dog lovers with dogs who want to socialize and play with other dogs and their owners. Hope we WIN!!!

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.
