With Oakland County’s new Pet Resources Map, taking care of your critters is simpler than ever.
It wasn’t just another day at the park.
Oakland County Waterparks are officially closed for the summer. The closed sign prominent at the front gate, but last weekend families and their dogs were invited in for a little fetch and a lot of fun.
Tennis balls littered the pool as dozens of dogs dove in from all sides, using their best doggy-paddle to reach the closest one.
Oakland County Parks and Recreation‘s Waterford Oaks Waterpark and Red Oaks Waterpark hosted the 11th annual dog swim on September 10th and 11th; and it was clear, all dogs were in heaven dipping and diving into the blue water of the park’s wave pool.
Prior to the renovation, portions of the kennel dated back to the 1960’s, proving insufficient for the needs of today. It took three years of planning before the organization broke ground on the renovation in August of 2014.
The sun was hot, shining off the new silver shovels displayed next to the podium.
The Oakland County Animal Shelter and Pet Adoption Center is in the midst of some very big, positive changes.
In the Fall of 2017, all of Oakland County’s shelter animals, staff and volunteers will move from their current home off of Baldwin Road in Auburn Hills, to Oakland County’s complex, next to the sheriff’s administration building, east of Telegraph.
The new 35,000 square-foot facility will have a much larger capacity and is expected to house 140 cats and 150 dogs.
Fetch is the game, dog park is the name! Whether your four-legged friends are putting their doggy-paddling skills to the test, or racing for a sailing tennis ball, Oakland County Dog Parks provide three locations where all dogs can run, jump and play.
Vast open spaces, complete with trails, lakes and fields, give way to an earthly heaven for all dogs (and their owners). It’s the perfect place for you and your pooch to exercise and socialize.
