SCITUATE DOG PARK
The mission of Friends of the Scituate Dog Park is to encourage “Responsible dog ownership through recreation and education.” The goals of our organization are to build and operate public facilities to provide a safe and clean off-leash recreational environment for dogs and owners, and to educate the public to promote responsible dog ownership.
Friends of the Scituate Dog Park is a non-profit organization incorporated under the laws of the State of Massachusetts and is organized exclusively for charitable and educational purposes. We consist of a Board of Directors (a minimum of 7 individuals from the community with voting rights related to providing guidance to the operations of the park), and an Executive Committee made up of the following Officers:
President: Adrienne Rowles
Vice-President: Britain Davis
Secretary: Lisa Huffman
Treasurer: Brian Maiorino
In addition, special committees made of community members are assembled to provide assistance with special projects.
In 2017, Friends of Scituate Dog Park applied for and was subsequently approved for non-profit 501(c)(3) status through the IRS and with the state of Massachusetts. There are several tax benefits that come along with the 501(c)(3) status. The most important of these benefits is for you — all your donations to help bring a dog park to Scituate are tax-deductible!
In addition to donations from our supporters, the Scituate Dog Park will receive a grant from the Stanton Foundation, as well as the Community Preservation Committee (CPC) of Scituate for development and ongoing maintenance of the park.
