There will be a Pup Rally at 4 p.m. Monday July 9 at Government Plaza, 505 Travis St. in downtown Shreveport.
The common goal is to persuade Mayor Cedric Glover to sign off on a $280.000 agreement between the city and the Red River Waterway Commission, which will allow the construction of Shreveport's first dog park.
The new dog park will be located at Hamel Memorial Park off Clyde Fant Parkway in Shreveport. So far, 1,300 supporters from around the nation have signed a petition supporting the cause which can be found at http:/?www.change.org/petitions/city-of-shreveport-mayor-glover-give-us-our-dog-park
The Dog Park Alliance also invites people to join them at 3 p.m. Tuesday July 10 when they will tell public servants to move forward with the dog park project.
