The Nutro Co . began the Room to Run dog park appreciation project to enhance dog parks across North America.
Associates from the company and community members are hosting the event at dog parks in 30 cities across the US and Canada from June 12 to June 19. Volunteer opportunities vary by location but include activities such as painting fences, providing benches, picking up trash and landscaping.
"As a company, and as a group of passionate pet owners ourselves, we are dedicated to enhancing dog parks because of the benefits they bring to not only pets but also the owners," said Carolyn Hanigan, vice president of marketing for Nutro. "Taking the time to help communities revitalize their off-leash areas is an endeavor that we are eager to undertake, as it is so important to foster the human-animal bond and bring a bit of nature to our pets."
