For years, our kennel supervisor Edgar Santiago dreamed of having a safe, neutral area for our dogs to run, play and socialize – a place where dogs could be dogs. In the Spring of 2014, a compassionate visitor asked what she could do to help. Edgar mentioned that fencing in Give Life Park, an acre on the property that was special to our founder, Emily Jo Beard, would provide a perfect area to increase the quality of life for our dogs, and ultimately help them become more adoptable. She immediately saw the benefits and, thanks to her generosity, Edgar’s dream has become a reality. We know Emily would be very happy to see this park put to such wonderful use.
