Volunteer with Us
We WOOF our volunteers! The Barking Lot is located within a NYC public park. The only people that keep the Barking Lot clean and safe are the dedicated volunteers that use it. NYC Parks Dept. employees do not go into the dog park except to occasionally empty the garbage cans (which they are not obliged to do). It’s up to all of us to refill holes, pick up poop and garbage, follow and enforce the rules and be responsible dog owners. Please do your part.
Want to take it to the next level? Contact us if you would be willing to share your time and talents in support of the Barking Lot.
