VOTE DAILY FOR NATCHITOCHES TO RECEIVE ONE OF NINE GRANTS

PetSafe® brand, a global leader in pet product solutions, has chosen the 30 finalist communities to compete for dog park funds in its popular Bark for Your Park™ grant contest. This year, PetSafe® will award prizes totaling $125,000 to nine deserving communities.
Finalists were chosen by a panel of PetSafe® judges who scored each submission on the level of community enthusiasm and support for a dog park project along with the impact that a dog park project will have on the community. Participants entered to win funds for either a new park or to improve an existing dog park. Following the contest voting period, four communities with the highest votes will receive $25,000 for the construction of a new park and five will be awarded $5,000 to enhance their local dog parks.
