HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

The staff and volunteers at the Hub City Humane Society are hoping you will help them name a new dog park near their animal shelter which is opening this weekend.

It opens Saturday at 11 a.m. and will be available for use during daylight hours 7 days a week.  It will have separate fields for large and small dogs.

HCHS is holding a contest to name the park. The deadline for submitting suggestions is Thursday at noon.

You can email your ideas here.

Funds for the park came from Hub City Humane Society's second place finish in a 2014 national PetSafe "Bark for Your Park" contest.

The organization won $25,000 to use for construction of a dog park.
