Lose the leash -- help us build a dog park!
Friends of Fitchburg DOGS, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of dedicated volunteers together with the City of Fitchburg Parks and Recreation and Conservation Departments working to create a dog park to serve our community.
The City of Fitchburg began exploring the idea of creating the park because of the growing number of residents who have dogs and want a nearby location where they could take them off the leash and let them run and play in a safe environment.
- Thanks to a Design and Construction grant from the Stanton Foundation and our park location at Coolidge Park is almost completed construction and should be open by the end of July 2018
- Thanks to fundraising and generous donations, the Friends of Fitchburg DOGS, Inc hasdonated the 10% match to the City of Fitchburg to cover the 10% match ($23k) and is currently fundraising for Dog Park Orientation Training group classes at the Dog Park, low-cost vaccine clinics and park maintenance fund.
- See our events below for more opportunities to get invloved and help out the cause!
