Moncus Park is pleased to announce a generous pledge from Bob and Sandy Giles and Giles Automotive to fund the large dog park at Moncus Park!!!
Bob Giles, community leader and Chairman/CEO of Giles Automotive, and his wife Sandy Giles, Vice President of the Board of Directors of Acadiana Animal Aid, united with the Pinhook Foundation to provide the additional funding needed to build a brand-new dog park to ensure separate spaces for large and small dogs. Together, their support ensures that all dogs will have a safe place to play at Moncus Park, no matter their size!
The new large dog park will feature an acre of fenced-in, off-leash play area for large dogs to enjoy. The addition will be adjacent but separate from the Giles Automotive Family Small Dog Park and will include many of the same amenities – benches, drinking fountains, and doggie waste receptacles. Both dog parks require an annual $10 permit to ensure the safety of all dogs and their owners by requiring that all dogs have been properly vaccinated and spayed or neutered. The large dog park is currently in its design phase and is expected to break ground this fall.
In partnership with Giles Automotive and Acadiana Animal Aid, Moncus Park will host a celebratory ribbon cutting ceremony and pet Adoption Day at the small dog park, now named the Giles Automotive Family Small Dog Park, on Saturday, June 4 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The community is invited to this commemorative event taking place at Moncus Park.
THANK YOU, Bob and Sandy Giles for helping us grow!
