Lynchburg is once again in the running for a $100,000 prize in PetSafe's Bark for your Park contest. Old Mill Townhomes, a community of townhomes in Lynchburg, VA is a pet friendly apartment community. We love our resident dogs and we want you to have a great dog park.
May is going to be a busy month for dog lovers in Lynchburg. The city is going to once again participate in the Bark for Your Park contest, in which money is awarded to the city with the most votes. This year there's also a chance for two runners up to get $25,000. Lynchburg came in second last year.
That money will go toward funding a dog park. The group Friends of the Lynchburg Dog Park has already raised enough money to build phase one, which is just a fence. They're starting work on that in the coming weeks. They will be busy putting up a fence in what will be the new dog park, so they are asking a group in the community to head up the efforts for that competition.
The group still needs money for phase two--benches, water, and other amenities. You can vote once a day, twice on both the website, http://www.petsafe.net/barkforyourpark/and on Facebook, https://www.facebook.com/PetSafeBrand/app_321086731284099.
