The deadline to cast your vote in the first phase of the national “Bark for Your Park” contest is June 1. Residents passionate about building a dog park in Mission Viejo are pushing the PetSafe contest that will award one U.S. city or town $100,000 toward building a local dog park.
Mission Viejo is one of many cities – including Lake Forest – that has been nominated for a chance to win the funds by local supporters. The “Bark for Your Park” contest is hosted by PetSafe, which bills itself as a leading innovator in pet behavior and lifestyle products.
Based on the information provided about each city, PetSafe will evaluate community support, availability of land and resources and overall impact to the city to select 15 finalists. On July 13, the finalists will be announced and short videos about each will be posted. The winner will be announced in August.
