Our mission is to establish a fenced, off leash dog park where well-behaved canines and their owners can exercise in a clean, safe environment without endangering or annoying people, property, or wildlife. To develop and maintain an attractive space open to all dog lovers and friends who are willing to abide by the park's rules. To view this park as a community project, in partnership with the city of Sutherlin, designed to satisfy the needs of both dog owners and non-dog owners.
Phase 1 of our mission has been completed, and the Dog Park is a reality.  If you would like to help finish the additional phases to complete the park, see the Get Involved section above.


Here you will learn about our mission to build a Dog Park in Sutherlin, Oregon, and how you can help.  Updates on our progress will be posted here as they are available.

Woofstock turned out to be a fairly successful event for the Dog Park. $126.50 was collected in sales and donations. The weather probably kept people away, so this could be a really nice event in the future. Kudos to Debbie Hauser for the fabulous banner that led the parade and graced our booth afterward.

Play Day at the Dog Park

The June 30,Play Day at the Dog Park has been postponed.

The Park Grand Opening was held on August 8th.  Approximately 50 people attended with lots of dog having fun.  Deputy Lee Bartholomew of the Douglas County Sheriff's Animal Control Department cut the Leash on our own Daisy Dog to officially open the Park.  He also gave a short speech about the benefits of a Dog Park to the community.

July 19th, 2009

We are still fundraising to finish brick "Honor Wall" and maintain the park.  The Honorary Pet Mayor of Sutherlin fundraiser is presently going on to raise money for both dog park and Lions Club of Sutherlin.  Nik, Small Pony; Accee, German Shepherd; and Simon, the Bulldog are the three candidates.  It will be determined on August 17th, 2009 who our Pet Mayor will be for the year.  The honorary pet will be in the city parades and different events during the year.  We hope you will consider voting for one of these pets.  We invite all to attend our Grand Opening where all three candidates will be present.  We also will be thanking the City of Sutherlin for allowing and making possible for us to have this off-leash dog park.  We believe this will be a great asset to our town.
