Your Donations at Work

Your Donations at Work

Thanks to your generosity during our springtime fun-raiser we wont have parched puppies at the park this summer. Feel free to keep the water bowls full when you and your dog are at the park. The water comes up from a good distance underground so to operate the new faucet just turn the handle 3-4 times and wait 20-25 seconds for the water to start pouring out. And please make sure to turn the faucet completely off when finished.

Mid-Summer Membership Drive reminder: as you can well imagine the park has ongoing general maintenance and upkeep activities that require funding from our members and others who enjoy using the facility.  We will have a team of dedicated volunteers at the park this Saturday, July 13th, from 9:30 – 11:00 am to sign up new members and answer questions on how you can help out.  More information about this event is in the post below.

Our Volunteers, Contributors, and Sponsors are Great!

Our 2nd Anniversary Celebration was a big success and most of all fun for the people and the pouches.  Many thanks to all the volunteers for their time, Newark Street Park K-9 Friends members, other contributors and our wonderful sponsors who supported the event,  came out to celebrate with us at the park, or both.

Watch for a special tribute to our volunteers in the coming days.
