ADP Founders Campaign

Park construction will cost an estimated $347,000. Two-thirds of this expense has already been secured thanks to generous grants from the Stanton Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports the development of enclosed dog parks in Massachusetts. While the Stanton Foundation will cover the majority of construction costs, an additional $100k in funds are needed for important amenities such as benches, shade structures, water stations, and waste receptacles. The Amherst Dog Park cannot open without these vital features essential for the enjoyment and safety of its users.

There are currently a limited number of sponsorships available for permanent recognition. We have donations and commitments of nearly $60,000, which cover the Founder’s Pavilion, Small Dog Structure, and some of the benches and other structures, but we need $40,000 more to cover general costs, the large shade structure, fountains, benches, etc.  Will you join us as a Founder of the Amherst Dog Park?

There are several ways to support or donate:

  • Send a check to the Town of Amherst with “Amherst Dog Park” in the memo line.
  • You can donate via PayPal here (under construction!)
  • Come support us at one of our events
  • Purchase merchandise
  • Become a sponsor

All donations to the Amherst Dog Park are tax-deductible

Please send an email to if you have any questions or require more information.
