Thanks Robin. The community is so excited to be in the running and hoping to make finals.

Robin PetSafe

Hi Seldon, NY! You guys have a great effort towards your dream dog park in place. I just wanted to let you know that we have received and reviewed your Land and Support Letters. They are great and congrats on making this important step in the contest. You are using so many of the resources we have in place to help cities get the word out. Your precious pups very much deserve a dog park. Go Selden! Bark For Your Park!

Irene Rabinowitz

Come on Selden, we can do this! If everyone votes just once, we could win $100k. Be sure to like LI DOG & Central Suffolk Paws on facebook, we post updates often.

Our community deserves to have a nice place to bring our 4 legged friends & it would also show that Middle Country isn't just a bunch of stores & strip malls!

Irene Rabinowitz

What a great show of support from the community. I can't wait until we can celebrate at the dog park! :)

Gerard Dean

I'm so exciting and I hope we win. We really need this dog park.

Ginny Munger Kahn

Love the photos showing all the support for the Dog Park this weekend!

Irene Rabinowitz

We love seeing all the dogs just waiting for their own playground. So keep the votes coming in!

Nancy Borock Ami

This time no problem via online or Facebook, but I tried via mobile first. That didn't work! But at least I did get my votes in!

El Tag

Now it's not letting me vote

Ginny Munger Kahn

I love the letter from Councilman LaValle. It's a wonderful letter of support for the dog park!

Nancy Borock Ami

For whatever reason,, it went through using IE. Why I haven't a clue! Now if only I could get that last week of trying to vote and have those added on. Sigh.

Melanie Apostolico

Can't vote through the website but could only vote through the FB page.

Sarah Gugumuck
