WHO WE ARE: For Paws of Ulster, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit organization working to establish a dog park in Ulster County in the Town of New Paltz. We began our efforts in 2009, became serious in May of 2010 and have come a long, hard way since then. A New Paltz Town Board meeting held on March 22, 2012, approved a 2 acre parcel of land at the current Field of Dreams location to be designated for our dog park.
With over 5,000 dogs licensed in Ulster County and no legal off-leash sites for them, our residents are at a serious disadvantage. Dog Parks provide an immeasurable social benefit to not only the dogs that use them, but to their human owners as well.
We are overwhelmingly excited to be bringing this project to fruition and hope that you are too!
