* The Washington Humane Society will have their adoption van with adoptable animals, as well as information on their programs and services (adoption, fostering, volunteering, spay/neuter, feral cats, cruelty, humane education, etc.).

* The Washington Animal Rescue League will also be at the park with their truck with adoptable dogs and Dr. Jan Rosen, their medical director, for “Ask the Vet.”

* Spot on Training will have an “Ask the Trainer” table, and will set up two doggie pools to serve as a doggie cooling station. They will also bring goodie bags with treats, sponsor a “How Many Bones” contest for $25 off a training class, and have material with dog park etiquette tips.

The LDPA is an all-volunteer organization, having no paid staff/board members. Funding is provided by memberships and contributions/ donations from the general public. Board members will be on hand at Saturday’s event to explain how you can help the park continue to be a success.

Refreshments (hot dogs and drinks) will be available for a small donation, so bring a few bucks. For more information, visit and or send an email to langdondogpark@

  1. I understand that the new Ward 5 Councilman McDuffie has also been attending these events. So, this is another opportunity to reach him about any concerns, until he officially appears at public meetings.
