Barky Pines, Indian Trail Host Tree Dedication At Downers Dog Park

Representatives from Barky Pines gather in front of the tree dedicated to Michelle Damone.

On Saturday, Nov. 18, Barky Pines Animal Rescue & Sanctuary and the Indian Trail Improvement District held a ceremony celebrating the eighth anniversary of Downers Dog Park in The Acreage. The ceremony included a tree planting in memory of former ITID Supervisor Michelle Damone, who passed away from cancer earlier this year. Damone played an important role in opening the dog park. Some dog owners that adopted from Barky Pines came by for some fun. The dogs got to paint with their paws. Learn more about Barky Pines at PHOTO BY ERIN DAVISSON
