September 2019 Shirlington Dog Park Newsletter

1. Rabies Awareness Week:  September 23-29 is Rabies Awareness Week in Virginia.  Make sure all your pets’ vaccinations are up to date.  All dogs using this or any dog park must be vaccinated and licensed.  The Animal Welfare League of Arlington will offer rabies vaccines for $10 on Sept 26, between 6:30 and 8:30 PM.  Visit their site for more info:

2. Paws on the Pike:  The 2nd Annual Paws on the Pike event is Sunday, Sept 15 at the Arlington Mill Community Center's outdoor plaza, on the corner of Columbia Pike and Dinwiddie Street from 1 PM to 5 PM.

3. Valley Fest will take place on Sunday, Sept 29. There will be no access to the entire parking area adjacent to the main dog park entrance so plan accordingly.

4. We are always in need of clean plastic bags, such as those your newspaper comes in, for use in picking up dog poop.  Please put them loosely in the two green mailboxes at either end of the park.  You can also place them all in an outer bag and hang it on the shed door handle.

5. Please help keep the park clean by making sure everyone picks up after their dogs and has them in sight at all times.
