(Knoxville, TN) — PetSafe brand, an industry leader in the development of innovative pet behavioral, containment and lifestyle product solutions, has announced that Watkinsville and LaGrange, Ga. are two of the 15 finalists in its fifth annual Bark for Your Park Contest.

If Watkinsville wins this year’s Bark for Your Park contest, a PetSafe dog park would be on approximately three acres of property located at Oconee Veterans Park.

If LaGrange wins this year’s contest, a PetSafe dog park would be built on approximately one acre of property located on West Haralson Street.

More than 1,000 communities were nominated for this year’s contest, which will award one community with $100,000 and four runner-ups with $25,000 each to build an off-leash dog park in their community.

The 15 finalists were selected based on total number of votes in the first phase, and were broken into three categories based on the community’s population size: small, medium and large.

Watkinsville and LaGrange each earned themselves a spot as one of this year’s finalists in the “large” city category. Voting for the 15 communities is open now through July 22, 2015.

The 15 finalist communities will receive a finalist kit that includes tools to help get the word out to their community and encourage them to vote in the contest.

The kit includes t-shirts for dog park leaders, yard signs to place around town, stickers, window clings and other items to help communities garner more votes.

The community with the highest number of votes will receive the grand prize of $100,000 to build an off-leash dog park in their community.

PetSafe will also award four runner-up prizes of $25,000 each to the community with the most votes in each small, medium and large category as well as the community with the highest voting percentage per capita, which will receive the Bark from Your Heart award. Winners will be announced on July 31, 2015.
