Attleboro Mutts March Through Capron to Raise Money For Their Own Park

Dog Park's Mutt March brings in $350 toward the creation of an Attleboro dog park.

Nearly three dozen dogs participated in the Attleboro Dog Park Committee's Second Annual Mutt March Sunday afternoon.

"It was a great turn out," said Dog Park Committee Member Raymond Cord. "We raised $350 and shot group video for the Bark For You Park contest. "

A total of 30 dogs of all sizes and breeds marched through . The dogs were judged based on Best Dressed, Best Kisser, Most Obedient, Best Trick, and then Best in Show. 

"Although still a long ways from our goal we are inching closer with each event," Cord said. "We were also able to get some great shots and collected some great video, which will be used for the PetSafe Bark For Your Park $100,000 contest."

Attleboro was recently named as .

Sorry we missed it. Unfortunetly, it was the same day as Norton's 300th birthday parade. Congratulations on raising $350.

I would like to thank everyone who came to the 2nd Annual Mutt March. Everytime that we have a fundraising event I consider it a success as it takes us one step closer to our goal of having an off the leash dog park. Not only did we raise awareness to our cause, but we had tons of fun doing it. From every adult who came to every child who were thrilled at the sight of so many dogs in one area. A perfect day, perfect weather and a perfect showing. I could not have done any of this without the support of my fellow committe members and their families, the support of so many businesses who gave us prizes to award our winners, our judges who volunteered their time and the media coverage from. If I have left anyone out, please know that we are so appreciative of your support. Please don't forget to send us your photos/videos to possibly use in the "Bark For Your Park" contest.
