Needham is a few hundred dollars closer to getting a dog park due to the fundraising efforts of resident Bill Paulson.
Using GoFundMe.com, Paulson is working with a group to establish the first off-leash dog park in town. The land has been set aside for the project, but the town has asked the group to raise the money to do the site work, set up the fencing, etc.
“We are struggling to raise the money we need,” Paulson said via GoFundMe.com, an online fundraising website. “Are you a dog lover? Please help us with whatever you can afford.”
When Needham Patch first ran this story about two weeks ago, Paulson raised $1,025 using GoFundMe.com. The site has now collected $1,625 from 15 people in a month. Paulson’s goal is $15,000. Click here to donate to the Needham dog park cause.For more information, visit the group’s Facebook page.
