25 communities will receive funding for off-leash dog parks!

The annual PetSafe® Bark for Your Park™ campaign will help fund new dog park construction, plus maintenance and equipment upgrades to existing off-leash dog parks.

Since the launch of its nationwide Bark for Your Park program in 2011, PetSafe has been working to create more off-leash dog parks around the country that bring like-minded members of the community together and provide a place for dogs to receive exercise and socialization.

“The goal of Bark for Your Park has always been to help communities become better places to live for people and their pets,” said Willie Wallace, CEO of Radio Systems® Corporation, parent company of PetSafe. “Finding a pet-friendly community is more important than ever. Dog parks are the second must-have amenity people search for when looking for a new city to call home. Plus, proper exercise and socialization reduces behavior issues, which keeps dogs out of local shelters and rescues.”

The following cities will receive funding for dog park projects or commercial-grade dog park equipment from UltraSite™, a PlayCore Company:
