DOGTEK helps sponsor the annual “Woof Walk” in Sioux City, Iowa
(Sioux City, Iowa) DOGTEK helps sponsor this year’s Siouxland Off Leash Association’s annual “WOOF WALK”. This event is scheduled for June 13, 2010 at the Lewis and Clark Dog Park in Sioux City, Iowa. Dog owners will have the opportunity to walk or jog with their four-legged best friends around Bacon Creek Lake. Proceeds from the event will go towards the Lewis & Clark Dog Park in Bacon Creek which is part of the City of Sioux City’s park system.
The afternoon will consist of several activities. Registration and check-in will start at noon.
“Last year was a lot of fun,” commented Jennifer Elwood, Dog Jog/Woof Walk co-chair. “With all the activities we have planned, it should be a great time this year as well. You will get to spend some quality time with your dog.”
“This is our big fundraiser for the year,” explained Judy Thompson, SOLA treasurer. “The money raised will go for a major project at the dog park.
The Lewis & Clark Dog Park formally opened on May 14, 2005 after receiving a substantial grant from MRHD. In the year since the dog park was officially opened, SOLA has raised money for a hexagonal shelter, a message board, a small dog area, and benches. Modern Woodmen of America and the City of Sioux City have provided additional trees.
Siouxland Off Leash Association, also known as SOLA, is an all volunteer, nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to support the Lewis & Clark Dog Park and to promote responsible pet ownership. The dog park is located in Bacon Creek Park in Sioux City and has over five acres in which dogs can exercise off leash. Families can walk the perimeter of the park on a mulched path. An additional benefit of the dog park is that dogs can become socialized to other dogs and people. In April of 2006, SOLA received the Lay Organization of the Year from the Iowa Parks and Recreation Association. They work in partnership with the Sioux City Parks and Recreation Department.
