Canton Paw Park is a proud member of the Georgia Department of Transportation Adopt-A-Highway program! Our section is from mile marker 2.31 to mile marker 2.73. As part of this program, CPP agrees to organize a litter pickup in this area at least 4 times per year. We are excited to offer our help to better the community and the environment in the most beneficial and least expensive way to the City of Canton.
A few reminders-
****All dogs MUST BE ON a leash outside of the fence at all times.** This means from the parking area to inside the fence and then from the fence back to your car. The City of Canton does enforce the leash law, and for the safety of everyone leashes MUST be used at all times on all dogs!****
Please remember to pick up poop after your dog. This park is a cooperative effort between owners and it will only work if owners help out.
Reminder: Please remember to park in the graveled parking area, past the field on the left. Do NOT park in front of the fence along the street- you will get a parking ticket!
On March 19, 2011, the Pet Wellness and Vaccine Clinic hosted by Riverstone Animal Hospital to benefit Canton Paw Park took place.
Last year, we were able to vaccinate 41 dogs and 14 cats, 55 total. This year, we more than DOUBLED that! We vaccinated 107 dogs and 27 cats, 134 pets total!
The Riverstone Animal Hospital veterinarians, Dr. Simone Nutt and Dr. Greg Nutt, as well as the Riverstone Animal Hospital Team donated their time. All supplies and vaccines were donated by the manufacturers, and Canton Paw Park volunteers donated their time as well. All of this leads us to a great outcome, as Riverstone Animal Hospital has donated $5000.00 to the Canton Paw Park! Funds will be used for benches, waste cans, and ground care materials. Thank you to all of the pet owners who attended the vaccine clinic to benefit the Canton Paw Park. Thank you to all volunteers who graciously donated their time and effort. See you on April 16 at the Canton Paw Park for the grand opening.
