Sixteenth Project Report

DOGPAW's new board president has been working to help rebrand the DOGPAW name and image.  We've contracted with a professional service for a series of workshops for our board, site managers, and other volunteers to recreate our Mission, Values, and Vision.  Stayed tuned for updates on our progress on this front.  

Meanwhile, we are starting an aggressive campaign to attract volunteers to the organization.  We cannot accomplish the wonderful things we'd like to accomplish in marketing, park user education, increase in donations and members, etc. without the support of many new and energetic volunteers.  We will be hosting a volunteer rodeo at the end of January, 2017 to help solicit those volunteers.  Stay tuned for more information on this event.  

We have been working tirelessly with local officials and business owners in the Camas/Washougal area for property to put in a replacement dog park for the Stevenson Dog Park which closed on November 1st.  Unfortunately, extremely high City and County permit fees are some of our biggest hurdles we currently face in this endeavor.  

DOGPAW is lucky to have a couple of professionals volunteering their time to create a new webpage for us.  The new webpage should be rolling out very soon.  Check out the webpage and check us out on Facebook.

Fifteenth Project Report

DOGPAW is undergoing many important changes.  We are in the process of changing board members and are working to get our new board members up to speed.  We will be reinvigorating and rebranding DOGPAW to become bigger and better than ever.  

We are still working diligently on trying to find a location for a replacement dog park for the Stevenson Dog Park which will be closing on November 1, 2016.  County/City permitting processes are fiscally debilitating to our organization as our operating income is barely covering our operating expenses.  

The DOGPAW website is up and running and we are attending to any remaining issues.  If you have trouble with any aspect of our website please contact us at:  800-899-0025 ext 0 to report the issue.  

Stay tuned for further developments on our webpage, Stevenson Dog Park replacement, and new course for DOGPAW.

Fourteenth Project Report

Membership Table at Dakota Dog Park
Membership Table at Dakota Dog Park

DOGPAW is proud to welcome new volunteer Board members to our team.  Mark Fruechtel will be coming on as President, Andy Ladick is our new Vice-President, and we have three other new board members to bring new life to our group.  We are excited to work with these energetic new teammates.  

We held our first membership drive of 2016 on March 19th at Dakota Dog Park.  A big thank you to Andy Ladick and his wife Kimberly and Debra DeLong for their great work.  We netted $700 through ten new memberships and many donations.  We even put Sadie to work.  We will be having several membership drives scattered through the parks at different days and times throughout the summer.  Check our website for our event schedule. 

Due to the sale of the land under our Stevenson Dog Park in Washougal, WA the DOGPAW board is actively working with county officials to locate usable land for a replacement dog park.  The new land owners in Washougal have been very generous in allowing us to keep the dog park open as we locate land and resite our dog park.  However, the Stevenson Dog Park will be closing its gates on November 1, 2016.  We're hopeful to have a new park ready to open by then. In the meantime, we will be conducting some intensive fundraising campaigns to raise money for the construction of our new park.  

Thank you for your continued support.
