Great News!! Francis Dog Park/West End Dog Park is now a 501 (c)3 non profit. We need your help and are seeking donations for us to maintain and improve the dog park.
We need to purchase a hose reel cart to hold the 250 ft. hose we have to water the trees and to buy poop bags.
FYI, DC does not supply the poop bags or provide any support in maintenance of the dog park. The bags are from donations and should only be used in the event you need an extra bag at the dog park. They are not for you to take home and supplement your personal stock…..something we have noticed several people doing!
Lastly, we are seeking donations for other dog park improvements and the possibility of resurfacing the dog park.
Please hit the “DONATE” button on our websitewww.francisdogpark.com for your tax deductible donation. If you need a copy of our certificate, let us know.
Your donations are greatly appreciated for improvements and the long term maintenance of Francis Dog Park/West End Dog Park. Thank You!
REMINDER – PLEASE CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR PET to help keep the dog park clean
Saturday’s tree planting event with Casey Trees, was a huge success. To those of you that came out to help THANK YOU!
To those of you who missed out, we still need your help. Here’s your chance to add to the beautification of the area, and to support our community effort, by helping the trees to prosper.
The new trees need our help with 25 gallons of water per week. Please email email@example.com to sign up to water. We will develop teams and a schedule for the watering brigade.
Summer greetings — it’s taken some 5-years for us to have our dog park, but have it we do… albeit in need of finishing — and ideally some expansion.
We’re reaching out to solicit any interest in helping see the task completed… if not for our dogs, then in the memory of those who’ve passed, and for those to come!
As of today; 2 benches have been installed and Casey Trees has agreed to plant trees on 3 sides of the park (none on the playing field side). This autumn or next spring… we want to plan an event we hope to celebrate, starting with food & beverages for the volunteers.
We’ve been in contact with K9 Grass Company and have received samples, towards defining our dog park finishing plan for city council review and approval in the not-too-distant future (hopefully).
Apart from Casey Trees’ donations, this endeavor will be privately funded through various fundraisers and donations — AND WE NEED YOUR HELP IN KEEPING THE DOG PARK MAINTAINED!
Get involved! Please sign up for our mailing list and we’ll keep you in the loop.
