TEHACHAPI, Calif. - Tehachapi is one of 15 finalists in the running to win a $100,000 grant towards a new dog park funded by PetSafe’s “Bark for Your Park” annual contest.
The grant would put the dog park on over an acre of land at Tehachapi’s Meadowbrook Park. If it wins, the city is also looking into installing a new irrigation system, an agility course, splash pads and possibly new grass.
The city's Parks and Recreation division teamed up with Marley’s Mutts to show voters the importance of enforcing communication between dogs and their owners to maximize positive behavior.
“This community will start to learn more about canine welfare and behavior so they can have a more loving and symbiotic relationship with their dogs,” says Zack Skow with Marley’s Mutts.
As of Friday afternoon, Tehachapi is in fourth place, and It also happens to be nearly 1/100th the size of most cities it is competing against.
The last day of voting for "Bark for Your Park" is July 31 and the winner will be announced August 4. Voters can vote up to twice a day either through their website: http://www.petsafe.net/barkforyourpark/ or through their Facebook page: http://www.petsafe.net/barkforyourpark/fb/
