Please Note - annual and pro-rated memberships: The annual membership runs from September 1st 2012 to August 31st, 2013 and costs $75.00. As an all volunteer organization, we try to keep things simple and cost effective, and we only pro-rate our fees for the last three months of the membership year (June 1st until September 1st, 2013). If you have further questions on this, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The organization was formed in 1992 to address the needs of West Village dog owners, the residents of our neighborhood and our pets.
It is our mission to secure safe, fenced-in areas in our neighborhood where dog owners can congregate and where their dogs can play and exercise off-leash.
We are dedicated to working with community and city officials, veterinary and training professionals and other neighborhood groups to help improve the quality of life for dogs, dog owners and our neighbors.
WVDOG will encourage communications among West Village dog owners, address issues such as sanitation, security, rules and maintenance of approved dog runs and work with local officials to explore possibilities for dog run sites throughout the West Village.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Should you know of a great dog site or other sites of interest that you think would be "good links" to our site please let us know. We are currently compiling a list of possibilities.
