Pizza fundraiser to benefit Bryant dog park
Residents can make a donation to the Bryant dog park by eating at U.S. Pizza during the "Dog-Gone Good Pizza" fundraiser set today from 5 p.m. until the restaurant closes at 10 p.m.
Ten percent of all sales will be donated to the Bryant Dog Park Build, said Tricia Power, animal control director.
U.S. Pizza also has a dog-friendly outdoor terrace, so people can bring their dogs to enjoy the event as well.
Employees of the animal control department will be at the restaurant until 8 p.m. taking orders for "Pawesome Pavers" and tickets to the Fur Ball, a formal event that will benefit the dog park.
"Pawesome Pavers" are custom bricks that will be placed on the park entrance walkway.
"The proposed dog park will be located within Alcoa Park at the corner of Mills Park Road and Shobe Road and will feature over an acre of fenced-in area, with benches, lighting and even a water feature for summertime canine fun," Power said.
Construction for the park is expected to begin later this year.
