Westfield could be going to the dogs. Well, not literally, but a dog park from PetSafe is a very real possibility. The company is offering $100,000 for such a facility, but the community must vote – and bear in mind neighboring Noblesville is on the scent, as well. If you would like to see the city in possession of a bark park, you need to:
- Visit www.petsafe.net to nominate Westfield.
- Complete our city’s profile page by finding available land and civic leader support by June 13.
- Start voting each day on both www.petsafe.net and the official contest tab on PetSafe’s Facebook at www.facebook.com/PetSafeBrand.
We see this as another valuable amenity for our fellow citizens, especially those of the dog-loving variety. A pet-friendly space would be just the ticket for many. As soon as Westfield is nominated, PetSafe will do the heavy lifting in confirming the availability of land and civic leaders’ support. You will also be able to vote every day to help our city move forward in the contest. For the best chance to become a finalist, make sure Westfield’s page is complete and be sure you are voting each day on both www.petsafe.net and www.facebook.com/petsafebrand. This gives Westfield twice as many daily votes! You may encourage friends, family members, civic leaders and community members to vote to bring the dog park to reality. PetSafe says you can even encourage friends and family members who don’t live in Westfield to participate in voting. Finalists will be announced on June 15, and then voting will continue until 11:59:59 p.m. on July 31. Winners will be revealed on Aug. 3. The runner-up city and the city with the highest percentage of votes by population each will receive $25,000. As they say in Chicago, “Vote early and often.”
