Humane association opens park for little dogs

The Petersburg Humane Association has opened up a dog park for small dogs at the site of the former Tent City camping area near Sandy Beach. The fenced-in park is open during daylight hours for critters to exercise in a safe environment. It’s part of the association’s larger plan for an animal shelter and dog walking parks and trails through the muskeg near the intersection of Sandy Beach Road and Haugen Drive. Joe Viechnicki took a tour of the site with Anne Lee, association member and head of the project.

The Humane Association plans to hold a grand opening for the park Sunday, September 9th at 2 p.m. Donations to the project can go to Box 1417 in Petersburg, or if you want to help out, call 518-1091.
