Friends of the Island Dog Park
Friends of Kent Island Dog Park is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization of volunteers who work in partnership with the Queen Anne’s County Parks Department to help maintain and improve the Island Dog Park by raising money for special projects and keeping the park clean, safe and functional.
There are a lot of benefits associated with dog parks. Dog parks are an excellent venue to exercise and socialize dogs. A well-exercised, socialized dog is a happy dog that is less prone to aggression and undesired or destructive behavior. Additionally dog parks are a great place for senior citizens and the physically disabled to easily exercise their dogs.

Company Signs at Island Dog Park
Island Dog Park is sponsoring a fund raising event by selling advertising signs to be hung on the fence surrounding the park. Signs will be installed in early spring and remain in the park until fall. The rate for one sign is $250 made out to Queen Anne's County Parks with half of the funds going toward improvements to the dog park and the other half covering the purchase of the sign; therefore you may claim one-half as a charitable donation for tax purposes. In subsequent years, if the sign does not need to be replaced, repaired or changed, the $250 contribution would be fully tax deductible. The sign includes one color art; however, full color signs are available for an additional $75. If interested in participating, please send your payment with the attached form. We will accept sign position requests on a first come, first served basis.
