Now that the Bark For Your Park contest is over, let me take a moment to thank you for your voting and your support. We made it to the Finals (15 out of 1,400 cities) and this brought real recognition and focus onto our park so that now, because of the great press, most everyone knows about the future Potsdam Community Dog Park, and that's amazing.
We didn't win the grand prize or a running-up prize. But, as part of Bark For Your Park, Potsdam was named the "Shelter Supporter" award winner by PetSafe and will be given 200 PetSafe toys for our local shelter, the Potsdam Humane Society, plus five, one-year's supply of dog toys!
To provide a fun, social, and safe play environment for dogs and their people; to create a beautiful, natural environment for both new and experienced dog lovers to foster responsible pet ownership; and to increase community awareness of the shelter and the many animals in need of forever homes.
Welcome to the Potsdam Community Dog Park website! As an extension of the Potsdam Humane Society, land behind the shelter has been donated to host a fenced dog park for safe, off-leash exercise, play, and socialization for our community's canine population, and for us humans to meet and support responsible dog ownership.
We hope to have the park open this Fall. Please leave your email to be added to our mailing list to receive news and updates. You can also click the "Donate" button below to make a tax-deductible donation toward the funding of the Potsdam Community Dog Park.
