Halifax Humane Society proudly announces the grand opening of our Community Dog Park. The opening of the dog park, funded with the help of a $400,000 Volusia County Echo grant, features 3 acres of land dedicated to the community animals of Volusia County.
The dog park’s prime location off I-95 makes it a premier destination for pet-centric travelers and community members alike. The park will be open daily 10:00am-6:00pm and features areas for both small and large dogs on and off a leash. The project, built by Coleman Goodemote Construction, includes agility courses, fenced & shaded areas, walking trails, and water stations for pet owners and their animals. The addition of the dog park brings the hope of increasing visitors to Halifax Humane Society to further aid in increasing adoptions. “The average individual visits HHS every 5-7 years, and we are hoping to increase that frequency. This bold move will help us capitalize on our incredible location and become even more welcoming to visitors and residents ultimately increasing adoptions and our educational outreach." Miguel Abi-hassan, Chief Executive Officer.
In addition to increasing traffic at the shelter, Halifax Humane Society plans to offer opportunities such as agility & training at the dog park, special events, and much more, to strengthen the human & animal bond in the community.
The dog park grand opening took place on June 3, 2016 at 10:00am.
