Dog owners open ‘Paws Park’ in West Salem
WEST SALEM, Wis. (WKBT) — Local dogs can’t contain their excitement.
Friday marked the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Paws Park at Veterans Memorial Park in West Salem.
People gave a round of applause for all the hard work put in to make local pups happy.
It began as an effort from dog owners and involved planning, designing and raising $50,000 in just over a year.
Organizers say putting the time in was worth it for their pets.
“it’s kinda needed in the area, I think the dogs need a place to run and play and it’s a great social activity for all our furry friends,” said Paws Park Organizer Rahn Pischke.
The off-leash park isn’t fully complete.
Organizers are considering adding more elements like agility equipment.
