After being awarded a long-term land lease at minimal cost in October 2010 by the City Council of Tacoma, the Dugan Foundation Spay/Neuter Clinic Dog Park idea came to fruition. The Dugan Foundation’s primary goal was to build a high volume spay and neuter clinic that offered free spay-neuter surgeries for animals of the shelters, rescues, and individuals of Washington State as well.
The fenced-in property of the Dugan Foundation Spay/Neuter Clinic Dog Park features plenty of space for pups to romp around off-leash. The initial goal was to create separate areas for large and small dogs on the property; it's still unknown whether or not the parks have been developed. The property spans approximately 2.8 acres of open space surrounded by large, shade trees and open grassy fields.
Owners can take advantage of the Dugan Foundation Spay/Neuter Clinic Dog Park’s surroundings and engage their dogs to a game of catch, Frisbee or merely let them romp around freely and socialize with the other pets nearby. Given its location, Dugan Foundation Spay/Neuter Clinic Dog Park also features views of Mount Rainier, so that’s a bonus if you happen to be a fan of hiking.
When bringing your dogs to the park, make sure they are adequately vaccinated and legally licensed to be there. Given that this is an off-leash area, owners need to maintain complete voice control over their pets, at all times. Furthermore, they have to pick up after their pups and dispose of the waste in designated containers. Bringing your pup’s waste disposal bag is especially recommended.
Take advantage of Tacoma’s Dugan Foundation Spay/Neuter Clinic Dog Park and let Fido run and play in a secured and safe environment. Whether you go for a walk or prefer to exercise them off-leash, this location will prove to be more than useful to you and your furry best friend.
