Penelope, adopted last October loves her new home
Springfest in the dog park was postponed due to the heavy rains that Dallas experienced this spring and the annual event has turned into a Dog Park Summerfest. The dog park festival will take place this Saturday from 11 a.m. till 1 p.m. in Central Community Dog Park and is open to all of Dallas.
The park is located at 4711 Westside Drive, behind Central Christian Church. Established by the church as part of community outreach over a decade ago, it has continued to grow in popularity with the neighborhood and City of Dallas.
There is plenty of seating under the shade of mature Live Oaks in the one-acre, off-leash dog park so you can relax, listen to music and visit with other people who share your love of animals.
Music, lunch ($5.00) and pooch pampering will be part of the festivities. Marleigh's Friends will be on hand with some examples of the love you might bring into your life (like Dickens and Roko) if you are ready to add a new member to your household. The rescue is a nonprofit, volunteer and foster run rescue based in the Dallas area that just started up last December.
You will meet Jenn and Sherrie so that if you are not currently in the market for a new dog, you’ll have a contact when you are ready to adopt.
All dogs will leave the festival with a doggie goody and you with memories of a special time spent with your best friend— your dog. All are welcome and it’s all free. But if you wish to make a monetary donation, it will be appreciated and will go to the upkeep of the community dog park.
