Dog Park Plans Advance, Fundraising is Ongoing – Newtown, CT Patch

With the May 19 approval by the Planning and Zoning Commission for a dog park property, which includes plans for the new Municipal Shelter, also known as the dog pound, supporters are one step closer to achieving their goal of opening the park this summer.

In anticipation of needing funds for the park, more than 100 dogs and their families descended on the Fairfield Hill’s campus for the 2ndannual “Strutt Your Mutt”  on May 21.

Presented by Newtown’s Department of Park and Recreation and sponsored by Mt Pleasant Hospital for Animals and Canine Training and Behavior Sciences, the proceeds will benefit the soon-to-be built “Park and Bark” dog park.
