Just a few days remain in the PetSafe company's "Bark for Your Park" contest - and Wheeling still is in the running to receive as much as $100,000 for a new dog park.
Fifteen finalists are competing in the contest, with a $100,000 grand prize. Though at the last public vote count Wheeling was trailing the leader, our community still is in an excellent position to win one of the four $25,000 prizes.
Supporters of a dog park in Wheeling have identified a potential site for it, near the J.B. Chambers Youth Sports Complex in Elm Grove.
Votes can be cast by going to the company's website, www.PetSafe.com, or at the firm's Facebook site. Voting is easy, and with no obligation or cost.
Time is limited, however. The contest ends Friday, with winners to be revealed Juy 31.
If you already have participated, we encourage you to use the remaining days to cast additional votes.
If you have not voted, please take just a minute or two and do so. Your support could be important in determining whether Wheeling gets a share of the prize money - and a new dog park.
