PetSafe to award one U.S. com­mu­nity $100,000 to­ward a dog park

Der­byVer­mont has gone to the dogs and needs your sup­port! Let’s give our furry friends a pet-friendly place they can call their own – a new dog park from PetSafe.

PetSafe an­nounces the launch of “Bark for Your Park,” a na­tional con­test through which one U.S. city or town will be awarded $100,000 to­ward build­ing a lo­cal dog park.

To voice your sup­port for Derby go to www.bark­fory­our­park. com/city/Der­by_Ver­mont

All por­tions of the con­test are ac­ces­si­ble on www.bark­fory­our­park.com. Here’s how the con­test works:

Stage 1: SHOW YOUR SUP­PORT - Get friends, fam­ily mem­bers, com­mu­nity lead­ers and ev­ery­one in your city to visit us on­line now through JUNE 1st and log their sup­port for a dog park by click­ing on ‘Show Your Sup­port’ tab and fol­low the on­line di­rec­tions. We want to see tons of com­mu­nity en­thu­si­asm.

Stage 2: FI­NAL­ISTS SE­LECTED - Based on the in­for­ma­tion pro­vided about each city, PetSafe will eval­u­ate com­mu­nity sup­port, avail­abil­ity of land and re­sources and over­all im­pact of a dog park to the com­mu­nity to se­lect 15 fi­nal­ists. PetSafe will post short videos about each of the fi­nal­ist cities on or around July 13.

Stage 3: If Derby shows enough sup­port in Stage 1 to be se­lected as a fi­nal­ist you will then be el­i­gi­ble for Stage 3 Vot­ing and the chance to win $100,000 for your park!

To be­come a fi­nal­ist for the “Bark for Your Park” con­test, PetSafe en­cour­ages com­mu­nity mem­bers to part­ner with lo­cal of­fi­cials, an­i­mal shel­ters and wel­fare groups, an­i­mal pro­fes­sion­als and pet own­ers to best demon­strate the city’s en­thu­si­asm and ded­i­ca­tion to its pet com­mu­nity.
