Show your support for a new dog park by attending the Jacksonville City Council meeting starting at 6:30 pm Tuesday May 26th at City Hall. After the park is figured out, head over to The Soap Co. Coffee House for further discussion on ways to goose voting. Say you’re coming using the Facebook event.

Remember the Breed Specific Legislation meeting? Let’s get as many people out for something POSITIVE. The second most common reason dogs are dumped at shelters is due to behavioral issues — dog parks give a venue to burn off energy and socialize dogs, reducing behavior problems.

Be sure to keep voting for Jacksonville to win $100,000 for a dog park in the PetSafe Bark for Your Park contest.

Currently Jacksonville is holding at 10th place. The top 15 vote getters backed by support, plans and budgeting by their city make it to the final round. One town wins $100,000 and 4 runner-ups get $25,000. This entry period of the contest lasts until June 10th.

Jacksonville is currently in 10th place. Thanks so much for all your support!
