Franklin Dog Park needs your financial support

The Franklin Dog Park needs your help.  Last year, due to COVID, both major fund raising venues for the park were cancelled.  As a member of the Franklin Downtown Partnership we relied on the generosity of those who stopped by our booth during both the Strawberry Stroll and Harvest Festivals to enroll in our raffle, make a token donation for a handmade doggie bandana and enjoy the freebie treats.  Many attendees first learned of the dog park during their visit to our booth.

The Furry Friends purchases all the supplies for the park (doggie waste bags, hand sanitizer, toys).  Several years ago we purchased two benches and this year we had helpful signs made to display around the park.  On the average we spend annually up to $1,000.00 and sometimes more.  We do not receive any financial assistance from the Town of Franklin although, the DPW is a wonderful supporter doing all necessary repairs at the park.  

The Franklin Dog Park is the “people’s park.” As such every effort is made to keep it clean and safe for the dogs and their owners – many of whom travel from surrounding towns.  Please consider making a donation to help us cover costs.

The Furry Friends has a checking account at the Dean Bank in downtown Franklin.  Your donation will go directly into that account.  We are a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.  Your contribution is tax deductible to the extent provided by law. 

Please make your check out to: Furry Friends of Franklin, Inc.  Either stop by Dean Bank or mail your check to Dean Bank, 21 Main Street, Franklin, MA 02038.
