Weather Shelter


Weather Shelter Construction

Our dog park weather shelter offers a place to escape from the elements while we provide our furry friends lively, positive, social playtime. The Friends of the Dog Park raised the funding needed to construct a weather shelter at the Moscow Dog Park to protect its human patrons and extend the Dog Park's usefulness into the snowy and rainy months. WSU students assembled the Weather Shelter on site and the building construction was completed July 10, 2010.
