‘Gloucester Dog Park is one paw closer to becoming a reality thanks to the generous donations of $12,500 by Christopher and Anne Lewis for The Cat Doctor of Gloucester and an anonymous donation of $10,000 by a Rockport resident.
We still have a way to go but these donations along with the Dusky Foundation’s matching gift was certainly a wonderful way to end 2011. Remember the allocation of the land for the dog park was only approved by city council in March. We’ve come a long way in 9 months. This is due in part to a great crew of volunteers comprising the Friends of Gloucester Dog Park. We are actively recruiting additional volunteers to help with PR, community development, events planning, web design, arts committee members, volunteer coordinator -simply anyone that wants to be an active part in making this dog park a valuable part of this community.’
