Every year in North America millions of dogs and cats are killed in shelters as there are not enough homes. Too many are large and active dogs with insufficient ways to burn off energy and so they act out, becoming frustrated and destructive and are surrendered, often to be euthanized. Proper dog parks allow dogs safe opportunities to exercise, socialize and to remain loved and loving companions. The city of Prince George will not recognise the needs of large active dogs and their owners and has failed to offer adequate space for a proper dog park. Dog parks support saving the lives of companion animals through appropriate provision for their needs. We need support to convince City officials that supporting responsible owners creates a better community.
