You do not have to live in Chesterfield County.

The Friends of Ruff House Dog Park is a not-for-profit volunteer organization who is sanctioned by the Chesterfield County Department of Parks and Rec to maintain and improve the park and enforce park rules. In the past the association has, among other projects, purchased and installed shade structures in the kennels, built benches, installed lights, built a storage shed, replaced the fence gates, installed doggie time out areas and, as always, provided free poop bags. We need your help to pay for even more great improvements.

If you would like to volunteer to help at the event, donate to the park or setup a booth at the event, please contact
