Larimer Humane Society will help celebrate the opening of the Mehaffey Dog Park

InTheNewsThe Larimer Humane Society doesn't want to forget the dogs when Mehaffey Park is dedicated Aug. 1.  The nonprofit will be co-presenting the grand opening of the Mehaffey Dog Park on the west side of the new 69-acre park in northwest Loveland with contests, giveaways, dog adoptions and pet-related vendor booths.  The event will take place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the park, 3285 W. 22nd St.

"It gets people excited and lets people know about us," said Danielle Hastings, marketing and community relations manager for the Larimer Humane Society. The dog park — a city facility within the larger park of fields, play areas, trails and shelters — covers almost an acre and features shade structures and natural boulders for the dogs to climb. The east side is for shy and small dogs, and the west side is for the rest. There also is water available for the dogs to drink.

"We really hope that the Loveland residents and their furry, four-legged friends will enjoy this for years to come," said Elizabeth Anderson, parks and recreation director for the city of Loveland, adding that urban dog parks fill a niche in recreation amenities. "They need a place to have them off leash and recreate with them." Read the complete article on the Reporter Herald Website

The agency has issued 51 licenses so far this year, nearly as many as were issued for all of 2014. The number of chicken licenses is likely to increase with the growing interest in urban agriculture, said Capt. Bill Porter, director of animal protection and control for the humane society.
