Good morning, Dog Park Nation!
We’ve had a great couple of days, as our story in Crain’s Detroit has gone a little gang-busters on Facebook and elsewhere.
One thing not completely clear in the story is that we only have about 1/2 of what we need to build our full park. The money we’ve raised so far is really only going to cover fencing 3/4 of an acre, and maybe a couple of extras. Maybe. So, if you can, please click on the Paypal link and help us out.
A lot of people have asked over the last couple of years what it’s taken to build the park, and what’s the process for doing it. All we can say is that there is no one way to build anything or do anything in Detroit. All paths are valid. All dogs are deserving. Our process is a little slower because we really are trying to build sustainably, using less new material, and repurposing what we can.
We’re hoping to be open this fall, but we need some good luck, good vibes and a few extra bucks to get there. Make sure you come back here for updates or visit us on our FB page. We have Dog Party on Aug. 17, at Tiger Stadium. Hope to see you.
