Volunteers in Nashville work together during the inaugural Room to Run project to create a walking path in Centennial Park.
The Room to Run Dog Park Appreciation Project will bring together Nutro employees and members of local communities to enhance and revitalize dog parks in 30 cities across the United States and Canada.

“Enhancing dog parks is a natural fit for The Nutro Company, as we’ve had a long-standing commitment to promote a healthy lifestyle for pets by producing natural pet food for more than 80 years,” said Kent Cunningham, vice president of marketing for The Nutro Co. “As pet owners ourselves, we are devoted to hosting the Room to Run project to revitalize dog parks across the country as they provide a natural oasis for dogs and their owners to interact and help reinforce the human-animal bond.”

Most Room to Run projects will take place Saturday, May 7, 2011, although one is scheduled for Sunday, May 15, 2011, and another’s date has yet to be determined. The projects will vary by location and the particular dog park’s needs but, in general, will include painting fences, putting together benches, picking up trash and landscaping.

Last year, volunteers logged more than 1,500 hours, making approximately 100 improvements at 30 local dog parks, said Anthony Quinn, Nutro’s territory manager.
