Dog Park and Nature Trail

General Information

Dog Park and Nature Trail
The Paws4ever Dog Park is a fenced three-acre off-leash socialization and play area for your dog. The park is located on the grounds of the Felicite Latane Animal Sanctuary / Paws4ever and is open almost 365 days a year from 8 a.m. until dusk. Please note there is no separate area for small dogs at this time.

Dog Park memberships include access to our Nature Trails! The 2 mile primitive trail is a beautiful route through the woods and includes access and views of Toms Creek. All dogs must be on leash while on the Nature Trail.

Dog Park memberships are available for an annual fee of $60 for one dog plus $30 for each additional dog.

For those interested in Dog Park membership, we strongly recommend attending at least one obedience class before joining the park. Your dog must respond to your requests to come to you reliably to maintain dog park safety for all members. Dog must be at least 7 (seven) months old prior to joining, and prospective members may be assessed for basic appropriate social conduct and safe handling ability prior to being approved as members.

Remember that it is your responsibility to control your dog. Having your dog spayed or neutered is strongly recommended and no female dogs in heat are permitted in the dog park. Documentation of DHLPP vaccinations, rabies and Bordetella must be provided upon application for membership
