A PET EMERGENCY SHELTER IN PTOWN WAS OPERATIONAL FOR HURRICANE IRENE!

 

For years Provincetown's emergency shelter has only allowed humans.  But this year, thanks to the vision, hard work and persistence of a handful of dedicated people, a pet emergency shelter was open!

 

The pet shelter took in two dogs during the hurricane Irene.

 

It takes leadership to shape change. A loud woof to Candace Nagle (one of the Directors and co-founders of Pilgrim Bark Park) for championing this effort, and providing yet another needed amenity in Provincetown for its residents and visitors alike.

Special thanks to CASAS President, Carol MacDonald, ACO Ruth Anne Cowing and all the volunteers who worked at the pet emergency shelter.

 
                                           FINALLY SHADE     

 

 

 

We have often been asked why we didn't plant shade trees in the park. 

 

The dog park is on town owned land. Underneath the ground cover of pea stone, cement and sand is a grid of pipes so, no root systems or footholds were allowed for shade trees or shade pavilions. 

 

so...

 

we expanded the general dog section west to benefit from the canopy of existing trees and installed two blue stone benches for seating.     

 

In the small dog section, once again, we combined art, history and function. 

Cape Cod has been the home of the Wampanoag tribe of Native American People for many centuries.  Accomplished farmers and fishermen, they helped the Pilgrims who arrived in 1620.  The Meeshan group who inhabited the Outer Cape used large nets as one of their ways to catch fish.    

 

The Provincetown Dog Park Association, Inc. collaborated with the Wampanoag Tribal Nation and Plymouth Plantation on this project.  Plymouth Plantation provided images of the headdresses worn. The Wampanoag Tribal Nation provided images of the stone plummets used.

 

Working with artist, Chris Williams, from Essex, MA, a sculpture was created incorporating all these elements. The Wamponoag Indian is casting his net, and today that net provides shade in the small dog section!
