Lucky communitites are going to receive grants to upgrade their dog parks. The annual PetSafe Bark for Your Park™ grant contest has selected the 30  finalists from around the country and now dog lovers that take control of the leash and vote for their favorites to win money grants.

Since introducing the program in 2011, PetSafe® has donated more than $1.5 million to support more than 70 off-leash dog parks in the United States. Now through August 31, 2021, anyone over the age of 18 that lives within the U.S. can vote once per day, every day for their favorite community at barkforyourpark.com.

Finalists were chosen by a panel of PetSafe® judges who scored each submission on the level of enthusiasm and support for a dog park project within the community and the impact that a dog park project will have on the community. Participants entered to win funds for either a new park or to improve an existing dog park. Following the contest voting period, five communities with the highest votes will receive $25,000 for the construction of a new park and five will be awarded $5,000 to enhance their local dog parks. The 2021 finalists for each category include:
