Work begins on 'See Spot Run Dog Park' in Hub City

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

A dog park in Hattiesburg has taken one more step to becoming a reality.

For the past several months, advocates of “See Spot Run Dog Park” and the Greater Pine Belt Community Foundation have been raising money to go toward a dog park for the Hub City.

Thanks to business and private donations, it is only $10,000 away from their goal of $150,000.

The land has been purchased, which is located on the corner of West Pine Street and 4th Avenue, in Hattiesburg.

It is currently being cleared in preparations for the dog park. It will feature a section for big dogs as well as smaller dogs. It will also have water features for your canine pet to make sure it stays hydrated during the summer.

James Moore, a member on the Board of Directors for the park, said for those Mississippi Power customers getting a refund, it could be an opportunity to help the group meet its goal.

“We’re hoping that with the Mississippi Power refunds that people who maybe going to take a credit and didn’t need the money would reconsider and ask for a check,” Moore said. “That would allow them to donate put your family’s name on this facility.”

Moore said if the work continues uninterrupted, the facility could be open in nine months. If you wish to help or donate to the “See Spot Run Dog Park,” visit its website here.

Please indicate “Dog Park” for your donation.
