The Denver Post recently ran an article that (finally!) reached past the juicy “poop” headline to start a more important discussion: “Yes, dog parks can be poop pastures, but are they unsafe?”

FEDP’s #BARKBACK Rally and Walk went off without a hitch yesterday, garnering some good coverage for our group in several media outlets, including Fox News Denver, CBS Denver, Channel 7, 9News, and The Denver Post.

FEDP was featured in several news stories yesterday, including pieces in The Denver Post, The Denverite, and 9News. All follow a story that Fox News ran last month—and are (hopefully) the start of much more news coverage.
This is a great start! We’ve made the Denver Post’s daily “Roundup” page. To quote: “The Evergreen off-leash dog park that was shut down over dog poop, then briefly reopened, will shut down fully and permanently — and residents aren’t having it.”
FEDP has added an event —our upcoming rally on Saturday, April 1, at 2 pm — to our Facebook page. Please share! https://www.facebook.com/events/317935525288495/
