The Friends of the Hartsville Dog Park and their Hartsville Puppy Pals (collectively known as “Team Bark”) are eagerly planning a future dog park in Hartsville, and are hoping dog owners will help join their team.

Earlier this year, the City of Hartsville purchased land for a dog park, located at the corner of Coker and Railroad Avenues, directly across from the walking path with fountains.
The area is already is a favorite for dog owners, with several dog water stations and pet waste stations equipped with receptacles for plastic pet waste bags.

The dog park, however, will allow dogs to roam freely “off leash” in a safely enclosed area. A separate area will be designated for small dogs. Proof of vaccinations will be required, to alleviate fears of health issues.

Sponsorship opportunities are available (including shared or partial sponsorships) with special recognition on a “thank you” sign at the future park:

• benches: $1000 each
• water fountains: $2500 each
• agility equipment: $250 Each
• Mutt Mix Boxes with trash receptacle: $500 per unit
• Fencing: $1000 per section
• general donations: $25 – $100 with recognition

Each donation will be tax deductible, as charitable contributions to governmental units are fully tax-deductible under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code if made for a public purpose.
