Our 2014 Washington Square Park Dog Run Calendar is a limited edition, collectible, autographed work of art.
Legendary punk rock photographer Roberta Bayley (mom of Sidney the pug) donated the use of her iconic Ramones album cover photograph, which we reimagined with a few of our favorite "punk pugs" from the dog run. The calendar, which features dozens of photographs of our dogs, is our fundraiser for the year.
It costs approximately $15,000 to maintain the small and large dog runs each year, which includes the cost of gravel, poop bags, garbage bags, tools and equipment.
The Washington Square Park Dog Run Association, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, is responsible for the care of the runs. The Association is run by volunteers, and every penny of your tax-deductible donation goes directly to supplies and equipment. The Parks Department does not financially contribute to or maintain the runs, so it's your donations that create the loving, safe, clean and fun place for our dogs to socialize, hang out and play.
Thank you for your support! Please feel free to contact Board Member Eileen Shulock with your questions, suggestions or compliments!
