Grants Available to Fund Dog Parks

Communities around the United States can now submit an application for PetSafe® Brand’s seventh annual Bark for Your Park™ grant-giving program.

This year, PetSafe will award 25 grants totaling $275,000 - not only to help break ground on new parks, but also to help fund maintenance and updates of existing parks.

Since the Bark for Your Park grant-giving program was launched in 2011, it has provided funding to 52 off-leash dog parks.

“The Bark for Your Park program brought our community together to enhance our Bark Park. It was a citizen driven effort, and since the park re-opened in March of 2017, the dog owners who love to use the park are even more invested,” Lisa Davol, Deputy Director, Oconee County Parks & Recreation Department, a recipient of a $25,000 grant through the 2015 program, said in a release.

The 25 grants available through the 2017 Bark for Your Park program include five New Park Awards valuing $25,000 each, 10 Makeover Awards valuing $10,000 each and 10 Enhancement Awards valuing $5,000 each.

Bark for Your Park grant recipients can receive a combination of funds as well as commercial grade dog park equipment from UltraSite™, a PlayCore Company.

Communities interested in submitting a grant application for the 2017 program can learn more about the program and view the application and submission requirements on the PetSafe website.

Application deadline is June 30th.
