During 2008 K9COLA received memorial donations from several individuals and groups. Our original intent was to plant trees at the Cheyenne Park Off-Leash Area; however, the floods of 2008 washed away any possibility of doing this. We appreciated these donations and want donors to know they were not taken for granted. As K9COLA's flood recovery efforts continue, these dontations will be properly acknowleged with a tree and plaque, or in some other way, depending upon needs at the site chosen for the new park. We want these memorials to be everlasting reminders for their respective donors, so will make sure we place them appropriately. Thank you from the K9COLA Board of Directors for showing your support of our dog parks.

At this time, unless donors specify something else, most donations will be going toward design and construction of a new park to replace Cheyenne Park, which was lost to flooding in June 2008. A critical need is funding for fencing.

Additionally, donations help support our email newsletter, which keeps everyone informed about upcoming events, fundraisers, changes in park policy, and volunteer opportunities. Members and park users also get dog care and training tips and park etiquette reminders. Sign up for the e-newsletter at our Home page.

Once we have a new park, donations will help K9COLA to add improvements and amenities. At Cheyenne park, donations helped fund benches, shelters, and trees. In 2004, two shelters were purchased by K9COLA and installed by the City. In 2006, doggie playground equipment was installed. In 2007, K9COLA cooperated with a local Scout Troop on an Eagle Scout project and built a storage shed at the park.

K9COLA welcomes donations designated for specific items (contact us for details and ideas), and particularly needs donations of time and skills (are you an accountant, carpenter, plumber, or contractor?; can you operate a Bobcat?, etc.).
