Many NYC dog parks or dog runs have 5 inches of tiny pebbles or rocks.
Other dog parks have cobblestones which are big, uneven bricks and rocks.
It is impossible for his mom to walk or use a wheelchair in deep pebbles or over cobblestones.
This is Owen.
What does Owen do for his mom? What's a Service dog??
- He picks up her cane and brings it to her when she drops her cane or falls.
- He helps her move her legs so she can get up when she falls.
- When it is hot outside, his mom sometimes gets confused. Owen knows where they live and when she says, "Let's go Home!" Owen leads her home.
- When they take a Taxi, Owen helps pull Rebecca's leg into the taxi. He LOVES taking taxis! (Her legs feel like they weigh a million pounds!!!!)
- Owen tells his Mom when someone yells or says her name.
- Owen tells her (or wakes her up) when someone comes to visit.
- Owen just learned to pick up all his "Babies" (stuffed animals) and put them in his Baby Box.
Owen & his Mom live in NYC in a neighborhood called Kipps Bay. Kipps Bay really needs a dog run and we've got just the place for it: Bellevue Park South! Located between 1st and 2nd Ave at 28th street, this hidden Kips Bay gem is ready for a few updates.
Sponsored by Councilwoman Rosie Mendez and the NYC Parks Dept, this petition (here) supports the creation and maintenance of a fully ADA compliant dog run to meet the needs of ALL the canine and human citizens of our diverse and wonderful neighborhood.
In order to demonstrate community support for this project, we need 1000 signatures!
Please click here to go to the petition.
All the dogs:
Big, Small, Pets, Working & Service Dogs
and their families
deserve a place to play!
Owen gets the mail!
Owen loves other dogs, but he can't go to the dog park with his mom. So he never gets to play with other dogs unless his Uncle brings him. That's not fair!!!
Please sign our petition so NYC will build Rosie's Run, a dog park for all dogs and all people!
Owen can stand, jump & FLY!!
