Volunteers Needed

We desperately need volunteers now!

Please, contact us IMMEDIATELY with your interests or talents[ ]

Board Member Resigns

After 8-yrs of volunteering for DOGPAW, Kathleen Hansen (Founding Member & Current President) is resigning.  She has contributed much to the organization, but it's time for new adventures.  Lets welcome Cindy Franke as the new President!

Commemorative Renaming

Brush Prairie Off-Leash Area is now called Lucky Memorial Dog Park, after a Clark County K-9 Officer Lucky, who was killed in the line of duty May 1990.  His partner Tom Mitchum is currently a Detective with Clark County Sheriff's Office. We wanted to Honor Lucky, as we have honored Kane and Dakota, who were more recently killed in the line of duty.

Room to Run

YOU can enter this nationwide grant program for the opportunity to help enhance local dog parks with $2K. Nutro encourages dog owners across the country to apply for grants to help improve their own local non-profit dog parks (DOGPAW).
