To raise funds for the Bark Park, staffers are selling T-shirts through Feb. 15. They say “Life is Great … Pets Make it Better “ on the front and “Washington Animal Shelter” on the back. The shirts are $15 each and can be ordered by stopping by the shelter at 415 Clark Road, filling out a form with contact information and shirt size, and paying $15 in cash. Trousdale expects the shirts will be in by the end of February.
Monetary donations will be accepted, as well, for those who’d like to contribute but have no interest in a T-shirt.
Most of the project will be completed by city employees with existing materials, so Trousdale hopes the remaining materials costs will be covered by the fund raiser. Anything extra will be used for signage along the street, which currently is nonexistent, and to promote pet adoptions.
