The Friends of Gloucester Dog Park announced that it will host a ‘Paws on the Beach’ celebration in honor of the end of the summer ban on dogs on the city’s beaches. The event, which is being held at Good Harbor Beach on Saturday, September 29, will feature coffee and treats donated by Mamie’s Kitchen. Members of the Cape Ann community are encouraged to bring their dogs to play on the beach and support the Gloucester Dog Park.
“Summer may have come to an end, but for dogs, beach days are just beginning,” said John Dugger of The Friends of Gloucester Dog Park. “Many dogs really enjoy the beach – whether it be running in the sand or splashing in waves. We are excited to bring the community together to exercise and socialize their dogs on one of the most beautiful beaches in the Northeast.”
Dog guardians should bring and use waste removal bags (barrels are located at the end of the foot bridge).
Friends of Gloucester Dog Park t-shirts and signature red dog park bandanas for dogs will be available for sale, and gift baskets will be raffled to benefit the Gloucester Dog Park.
Additional donations can be made online at www.gloucesterdogpark.org or by sending a check to The Gloucester Fund at 45 Middle Street, Gloucester, MA 01930 with the memo line: “Dog Park.”
