Oswego really needs a dog park. This will help out the community! Tell family friends... everyone. Send mass texts and emails. Use multiple email accounts, make them and then just delete them. If we are going to win this contest and get $100,000 (at the least $25,000) we need every vote.

With so many dogs in our community this would be very beneficial. Some dogs require more than a simple walk, or need a safe place to socialize with another dogs. I know if this happens my collie & mini dachshund will be there a lot.

I use Google Chrome and I can vote from facebook.

Mary Ann Hislop

This would be great for our community. I have a little dog that loves to run but we don't have a fenced-in backyard. Sometimes I bring her to the tennis courts and let her run around there. A dog park would be a great perk for Oswego/Montgomery! I will vote each day on both links!

Since I adopted two dogs (first I ever owned!) I'm more aware of canine needs and this park would be great! We all love our dogs like family, right?!

Amanda Smith

Oswego needs this dog park, there are so many dog owners in the area that need a place for the pups to play. Please, please pick Oswego!!!

Jeff Boone

Need to check the box next to the starement " i am not a robot" then your vote will count

Kit Kimes

I tried voting on Facebook using both the Firefox and Vivaldi browsers and I couldn't get it to work either. I refuse to use IE.

Tamie Pryor

If you use Chrome, you cannot vote using Facebook. I've tried several times. So, I'm sure we're missing out on votes.
