The City of Kenner began fundraising efforts in October 2016 that we call “Raise the Ruff” to help fund
the building of a Dog Park that will be located inside of Kenner City Park.
We broke ground on this project on May 5, 2017. The first phase of implementing the concrete and fence work is projected to be completed by September. We are still in need of funds to complete and enhance the park.
If you would like to make a donation to the dog park you can
visit the “Programs” tab and search Dog Park Donations and complete your
donation online. We will be sure to send you a Tax-ID letter for your donation.
Donations do not have to be cash, but valuable products and
services donated by local businesses. If you have something you'd like to
contribute to the cause, please contact us directly. We'd love to hear from
you. Here are some ideas:
