Holly Morrison, director of the El Dorado Dog Owners Guild (EDDOG), gave her annual report, including an update on fundraising efforts for the park, which will be located on a half-acre section of Hacienda Park.
As of Jan. 1, the guild has raised $12,160 of the $40,000 needed to build an enclosed area where dogs can run leash free. The group still needs another $20,000 for fencing. Multiple fundraising events are planned to fill the gap. One of their most popular events is called the Pooch Plunge at Cameron Park Lake. Scheduled this year for Aug. 18, last year’s event attracted 166 dogs.
EDDOG was established to advocate for off-leash dog parks, facilitate canine meet-ups, provide a place for dogs and people to exercise, and promote and support local animal shelters and rescue organizations. For more information about the nonprofit group, people can call 530-676-9699.
