Hi every one I am starting the process of starting a 501 c non profit all in one dog park/ doggy daycare/store. I have been to a few states but currently reside in MA. And there are very few dog parks. Most of them are just dirt pits with a few balls. The doggy day cares are just as worse most of them keep the dog’s inside with rubber mat’s and some balls to play with. My idea is an indoor/outdoor dog park. With agility equipment, swimming pool, water park, climbing equipment, a store that would sell homemade dog treats, Ice cream, toys as well as homemade clothes. I would also offer training classes and agility training classes. A room you can rent for party’s and things. There would be a play area for the two legged younger owners of the dog’s with a playground and a tv with a gaming system. The grown up’s would be able to have access to some fresh coffee. Of course there would be a little dog area and a big dog area both outside and inside.
I have found some ideas where there is a company that is able to turn the dog’s poop into electricity. I also want to work with local organization that help animals by doing events that would help animals out. In exchange for participating in the event the dog owners would get some kind of free trial member ship. For example if you adopt a animal you would get 2 weeks free to the Dog’s Day of Play.
I’m in the very start up of this so I am writing this as I start my journey. I will eventually start asking for help to raise money. And will also be looking for volunteers.
I have a lot of ideas to make a lot of the equipment with recycled products which will help the environment as well.
