2019 - SECOND YEAR, TWICE THE FUN.
In our second year, we focused on community support. We were absolutely blown away by how many people supported their communities in the competition for a grant. Because of the outpour of love for furry friends all across the state, we decided to name two grand prize winners for this year.
Dog parks allow pets to roam leash-free and play with other dogs in a controlled environment. Studies have also shown that having dogs and actively going to dog parks can have a positive influence on your health. We believe in our vision and only want the best for our pets and people in Tennessee.
Throughout our three-year campaign, the Tennessee Dog Park Dash will impact more than 100 dog parks, and we granted thirty winners in 2019 alone. We’ve officially impacted 67 dog parks across the state! If your community was awarded this year, congratulations!
Cookeville, Tennessee and Columbia, Tennessee were chosen as the grand prize winners because of their overwhelming community support. Both cities received over 300 support letters each and countless posts of support on social media.
We have the pleasure of traveling to all the winning cities August through October to celebrate the local leaders and community members who made their community’s grant a reality.
