Time is running out for people in the Hattiesburg area to vote in the nationwide Pet Safe Dog Park contest. 

Hattiesburg was nominated by the Hub City Humane Society to participate in the contest. The city is competing against other cities from around the country for a chance to win $100,000 that would go toward the building of a dog park. Folks have until Saturday to go online and vote for their city in the preliminary round. The highest number of votes per capita will move on to the finals.

Folks can vote twice a day by going to petsafe.net or the Pet Safe facebook page. Cities moving on to the finals will be announced June 13. Thus far Hattiesburg has received more than 2000 votes.

Hub City will donate land on their Jackson Road property for the  dog park to be built on.
