Thank you all for making Philadelphia’s first ever Dog Day Afternoon a great success. On Sunday, May 17th, over 250 people and 31 community businesses came out to show their support for the revitalization of the Columbus Square Dog Park, all in spite of the rain. With the help of our community and sponsors, SPADO will donate nearly $5,000 directly to our park’s renovation, just from this one event.
With donations valuing well over $7,000 SPADO’s Dog Day Afternoon demonstrated the community’s strong interest in creating a safe environment for dogs, their owners, and friends.
Thank you everyone that came out in support.
