2021 - A MILESTONE FOR COMMUNITY
In our fourth year, we received a record number of community support. The overwhelming support of the community has shown us the pandemic only strengthened our bonds with our pets. One community in particular stood out to the point they were award the grand prize.
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 campaign, the Tennessee Dog Park Dash will impact more than 100 dog parks, and we granted fifteen winners in 2021 alone. We’ve officially impacted over 70 dog parks across the state! If your community was awarded this year, congratulations!
Johnson City, Tennessee was chosen as the grand prize winner because of their overwhelming community support. They sent in over 500 support letters, hundreds of social media posts and even held multiple fundraising events in partnership with local business.
We have the pleasure of safely 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.
