Dugan Foundation is only $5000 away from beginning their dog park project in Tacoma and they need your help. Thanks to grants from Dimmer Family Foundation and contributions from generous Fur Ball guests, they have over $13,000, but they still need $5,000 more to start construction.
Matching Challenge – $100 donations matched
A generous and long time Dugan Foundation supporter, Beverley Long, has offered to match $100 donations for the dog park up to $1000!
The off-leash dog park is actually a part of Dugan Foundation’s current primary goal, building a High Volume Spay Neuter Clinic offering free spay neuter surgeries for animals of the shelters, rescues and individuals of Washington State.
The City of Tacoma, through the City Council, awarded Dugan Foundation a long term land lease (October 20, 2010) at minimal cost. The primary purpose for this land is to build a High Volume Spay Neuter Clinic. However, as a give back to the community, the Dugan Foundation will be building and maintaining an off-leash dog park.
The park is currently slated to be built on a 15-acre parcel of capped landfill off of Center Street. There will be separate areas for smaller and older dogs and all areas will be completely fenced.
