For the past five years, Beneful has been helping to build and upgrade parks across the country. I learned about this initiative when I headed over to their headquarters earlier this year. In fact, I even got my hands dirty helping revive the Frenchtown Dog Park.
Not only did Beneful donate $7500 to the park for future renovations, but they gave the team a chance to beautify the grounds together. It was truly a great day.
Beneful believes dog parks provide a special place for dogs and owners to bond and socialize with each other and the community. That’s why they created the “Beneful Dream Dog Park Project”. The program started out as a contest, and the Beneful team visited one winning community each year to complete a Dream Dog Park renovation. Imagine how happy all those little local pups were once their Dream Dog Parks were complete!! 🙂
Since then, the program has evolved. In fact, this year, Beneful has expanded by partnering with GoFundMe to give dog lovers a bigger platform to make a difference in their communities. That means that people all over the world can participate. You don’t necessarily have to have a shovel in your hand to help beautify the grounds… but you can donate money that helps buy that shovel. I love it!
This year’s goal is to support a total of 12 parks through donations and service days. If you are an animal lover and want to learn more information about this great cause, click here.
Have you ever visited a dog park before? I have to tell you – seeing so many owners and dogs together and running freely within the gates was such a sight to see. The dogs were so playful and happy and it was obvious they looked forward to those moments every day. When I visited the Frenchtown Dog Park, my favorite thing to do was watch the smaller dogs go into a puppy pool. What?! How adorable! It’s a great way to get outdoors, make new friends and create bonding memories with your furry babies.
