If you're an Ulster County resident with a canine best friend, like we are, then you know that we need a Dog Park in Ulster County.
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 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!
The creation of this park depends on your generosity! Neither the town nor the County are in a position to fund this project, and has asked us to fundraise for the initial start up costs. Below is a list of materials that For Paws is currently fundraising for. If you can help us in any way, please visit the CONTACT US
