Help Bring Harrisburg’s First Dog Park to Midtown!

Friends of Midtown is partnering with the Vartan Group and the City of Harrisburg to bring a temporary dog park to Midtown. On any given day in our community, you’ll see many neighbors walking their furry friends, and soon we will have our own public space for pets and owners to enjoy! Our efforts have even been recognized by TheBurg in not one, but two pieces.

However, to make that happen, we need to generate awareness in the area and raise $18,000.

To make a tax-deductible donation now or track our progress, visit our YouCaring fundraising site. For larger donations, we recommend the PayPal Giving Fund to eliminate fees.
