Well, the end of the year was a busy time for us, as we finished up our Kickstarter campaign, competed for a cash grant from Detroit SOUP and spent time with our friends and families at the holidays.
The new year brings new challenges, and we’re looking forward to telling you more about them as we can.
For now, we have our pop up dog park at the old Tigers Stadium from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16 and you’ll soon be seeing your Kickstarter rewards in the mail.
We’re also looking for help and ideas for fundraising. If you want to help, make sure you sign up for our mailing list and when the call goes out, you’ll be in! If you have any suggestions, email us at email@example.com.
Have a great week, dog-lovers!
Take a look at some proposed designs for Detroit Dog Park. As we move forward, we’ll have community meetings for your input and feedback. In the meantime, let us know what you think and remember, this is a design in progress. Thanks!
Less than a week into our Kickstarter campaign, and we’re already at $2,700. This makes us so happy, thankful and proud of our community – and the Kickstarter community – for pitching in to help us build this park.
In exchange for your donation, we can offer you some pretty cool pieces of Detroit’s history. Check it out!
Ashtrays – In Detroit’s Madmen era, no business went without branded ashtrays. These are slightly larger than your palm, and can hold any number of cool things if you don’t smoke. A 1950′s/1960′s classic. We have two.
Ticket stubs – In Detroit’s heyday, as the car was fueling our growth, people still relied on trains to get to Point B when Point A was hundreds of miles away. These are stamped ticket stubs from the 1920′s to destinations around the MIdwest and Canada. We have tons.
Dog tags – As Motown met funk in the 1970′s, Detroiters who registered their dogs with the city got these nifty dog-house shaped licenses. Put ‘em on your pup, wear them as a necklace, turn them into a keychain. The possibilities are endless.

Here are a few of the vintage Detroit rewards from our Kickstarter campaign. Help us raise $15,000! Get a piece of Detroit history while helping fund its future.
It’s finally time!
Detroit Dog Park has launched a campaign through Kickstarter.com to raise more than $15,000 to seed Detroit’s first official off-leash dog park. Kickstarter is community-based fundraising that allows you, our future park users and your friends and family, to give a little and watch it go a long way.
Since we can’t offer you a tax deduction, some of our friends and supporters have teamed up to offer you rewards for your donation – everything from vintage Detroit memorabilia to engraved bricks.
We know you’re anxious to hear where we’re going to be. And just as soon as we’ve finalized our agreement, we’ll let you know. But for now, we need your help. We need your commitment. We need your support.
Visit http://kck.st/RJAFpq and throw us a bone or two.
Hit us up if you have any questions. We can’t wait to have you run with the pack!
