Bark For Your Park!

Anyone from anywhere in the world can vote
TWICE A DAY for the
POTSDAM, NY Dog Park!!!

Dear animal lovers,

Our little town of Potsdam has made it to the top 15 finalists in the country of the PetSafe "Bark for Your Park" dog park contest -- to win either $100,000 or $25,000 toward the building of a dog park! Impressive power of mobilization from the community, great job! 

Potsdam is already working on a dog park - an enclosed area safe for dogs off leash. This will be really important for dogs who are not reliable around roads, cars, or animal distractions. (And fun for their humans too!) A lot of volunteers have been working to clear space in the woods behind the Potsdam Humane Society, who donated the forested land. PetSafe's contest will help pay for fencing, gates, benches, running water, etc. We win if we can get enough online votes.

By voting you are helping a small town do big things for the dogs and people of our community. Our dog park will be unique in that is is not only a park for townspeople to walk their dogs, it is on donated land owned by the Potsdam Humane Society, which means the dogs at the shelter will finally have a place to walk and play and maybe even win over the heart of a new owner, and as a result, get a loving home. Couldn't get much better than that. We have thousands of people living in Potsdam and the North Country. We can do this.

Please try to vote TWICE A DAY, every day through July 31.
And you don't have to live in Potsdam, so spread the word and have everyone you know voting for us!
