SETTING OUT ON A DOG FRIENDLY MISSION 

We’ve made it our mission to put a smile on people’s faces by creating dog parks across the state, where animals can play in safe spaces and people can grow their relationships with others. Our vision is to become the most pet friendly state in the U.S. by not only providing dog park grants in 2018, but also in years to come.

HAPPIER

PETS

Pets are free to roam leash-free at dog parks and play with other dogs without infringing on private property or impacting traffic.

HEALTHIER

HUMANS

Studies show that dog ownership has a positive influence on people with health issues like high blood pressure and also encourages physical activity.

CLOSER

COMMUNITIES

Having dogs and actively going to dog parks is a great ice-breaker when meeting new people and forming relationships within a community.
“Modeled after a very successful program that’s pioneered by our company, PetSafe, the Tennessee Dog Park Dash will provide funds for communities to create their own dog parks across our state. Dog parks are places where people and their pets can come together to share their love for the furry friends."
- Randy Boyd

The Tennessee Dog Park Dash, funded by the Boyd Foundation, is dedicated to building or enhancing dog parks across the state. Established in 2018, this program is helping to make Tennessee the most pet-friendly state in America alongside other major efforts from brands such as Radio Systems Corporation, parent company of PetSafe (R). Through the Dog Park Dash, more than one hundred communities across the state of Tennessee will benefit from dog parks.
