Be park smart. Please do not abandon your pet.

Return to General Information



A park is NOT a good place for a pet to live.

Pets need love, care, shelter, and commitment. Parks are perfect places for human recreation and relaxation. They are NOT suitable homes for domestic animals. Domesticated animals cannot live happy, healthy lives when they are abandoned in a park—and in the eyes of the law abandonment of animals is a violation of county ordinance 04-22, section 8. Control of Nuisance Animals.

Abandoned animals

  • are more susceptible to disease and injury;
  • do not receive proper nutrition;
  • are subject to cruelty and acts of violence.

Please surrender unwanted pets responsibly. Contact:
