Caring Hands Humane Society Community Partnership

Newton Dog Park Project is immensely pleased to announce a community partnership with Caring Hands Humane Society. Caring Hands has agreed to be our fiscal sponsor because they understand the wonderful resource a dog park would be for the Newton community and how well matched the Newton Dog Park Project is to the humane society’s mission.

The title “fiscal sponsor” does not assure a donation by Caring Hands, but allows the Newton Dog Park Project to solicit tax-exempt donations as well as grants through their organization. That means that we are now able to accept donations from our supportive community members!

We have updated our website to include a Paypal “donation” button. You do not need a Paypal account to donate. Donations will be managed through Caring Hands Humane Society. If you would prefer to donate by cash or check, you can stop at Caring Hands during business hours or mail them to their address (below). If you do, please be sure to MEMO that the donation is for Newton Dog Park Project or the donation will go into their general fund!

Caring Hands Humane Society is located at:
1400 SE 3rd, Newton, KS 67114

Business hours for in-person donations:
Monday: 10am – 5pm
Tuesday: 10am – 6:30pm
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday: 10 am – 5pm
Sunday: 1pm – 5pm

We are also developing other community relationships and will have another partnership to announce shortly. Keep in touch! Subscribe to our e-news through main page.

Thank you again for all your support!

Yeah! A few questions. Well this dog park be free? Where is the location going to be?

Thank you for your questions, Beth! Most recently, Newton City Staff presented Newton Dog Park Project with a parcel of land at Centennial Park between the treeline that is north Blue Sky Sculpture and south of the sledding hill. Caring Hands and NDPP agree with City Staff that this area is a prime location because if already has parking, is directly off of a paved road, and is also right next to the bike path.

Currently our vision is for a free, public City Park. In the near future, we anticipate the City Commission voting to approve this City land to be designated for an off-leash dog area. This land is already owned and maintained by the City, but unused for any other purpose.

I worry that this isn’t a large enough area considering our population. The Hesston park gets lots of use and I would overbuild it rather than under build it.
