MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

All you dog lovers pay close attention.  We have less than two weeks to get Montgomery, Alabama to the top of the PetSafe "Bark for Your Park" national contest which awards one city $100,000 for the construction of a local dog park.

As you may or may not know it is currently illegal for dogs to run free within the city limits of Montgomery.  So where do little guys like this go to have fun and hang out with their dog friends in a safe and legal environment ?  Good question and not a lot of options.

This park, to be located in the beautiful Blount Cultural Park would benefit our area in many ways.  Firstly, it would be a fenced in, grassy area where dogs and owners could safely socialize and exercise. Also think about what a great venue this would be for local Humane Society events, educational opportunities and fund raisers benefiting our canine friends.

There are approximately 22,000 dogs within a 5 mile radius of Blount Cultural Park alone.  Don't we owe it to them – to Louie - and all the dogs and dog owners out there to make a run at being the #1 most voted on city and win this grant! The answer is  - if I could speak for my furry friend here – is a resounding WOOF!

Log on today and every day until August 3rd to www.barkforyourpark.com and vote for our city.

We appreciate your feedback.
