GDOG was founded by local citizen Catherine Mahoney after her dog, Oso’s death in March of 2011, while he was exercising off-leash at Bicentennial Park. Oso was a fun-loving dog who was curious about everything. He was a shiba inu and everyone who knows about shiba inus knows that they are free-spirited and they need the space to run off leash. Catherine has since vowed to create The O-SO Fun Dog Park to prevent further tragedies such as this from happening.
GDOG hopes to raise $100,000 in a year through generous donations so that they can finish the final touches to The O-SO Fun Dog Park to make it O-SO wonderful! Together we can bring tremendous improvements to the park. GDOG is O-SO grateful for your consideration to donate to its cause. As of May 2019, The Gillette Dog Owners Group website has changed from www.gillettedogpark.com to www.theosofundogpark.org .
