North Fork School for Dogs in the News...


May 2012
The completion of the Dog Park's beautification was realized in May when a dedicated handful of volunteers planted native grasses and plants along the fencing of the dog park.  The tireless Kate Fullam and the Group for the East End obtained the plants through donation from Glover Perennials in Cutchogue.  Our thanks to the folks that put the finishing touches on our community's renovated park!

December 2011
Thanks to the help of Kate Fullam at the Group for the East End, beautiful elm trees were donated and planted by Southold Town's Public Works Dept crew.  The Public Works Dept also installed new benches inside both runs and spread mulch along the exterior fence line.  What a beautiful dog park we have now!  

We are looking forward to the spring when the Group for the East End plants native grasses and we start fundraising for water stations, bricks and agility equipment!

Now that the park has been approved for expansion, it will be up to us to make the park more beautiful.  In the next few months, we will be rallying the community to help with fundraising and donations.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a water dispenser or even a paddling pool for our pooches?  How about a nice seating area for us humans or a gazebo or pergola to sit under?  Stationary agility equipment would also be a great addition to the park.

October 2011
Looks like Southold Town heard some barking!  At the recent board session, the board agreed to expand the current dog park behind the Peconic Recreation Center!  We are very pleased and we thank everyone for taking the time to sign the petition.  Supervisor Scott Russell and Commissioner Jim McMahon are also to be commended for their foresight and persistence in recognizing the need for this space.  In the next few months, we will be asking for donations to beautify the park with landscaping and benches...we hope everyone can contribute a tiny bit to make our dog park beautiful for our dogs...and us!

'Dog Park Expansion to Cost Town About $13,000' article on northforkpatch.com

Help support our bid for a new Dog Park in the Town of Southold - imagine a park where your dog can run off leash and play with his friends, where you can stroll with him or have a seat and watch him frolic.  We need a dog park that is large enough to accommodate the large dog population on the East End.  Dog parks need to be spacious so dogs can feel safe when greeting each other; cramped spaces like the current park in Peconic have the potential to make dogs feel insecure.
