Eagle Scout Jarin Tines stands by the dog park in front of the Perkins County Animal Shelter that he completed for his Eagle Scout project. 

Eagle Scout dog park project dedicated

Grant Mayor Lisa Schmitt dedicated the dog park at Perkins County Animal Shelter on Wednesday, May 15, an Eagle Scout project completed by Jarin Tines. 

Having three dogs himself, Tines said walking them was difficult, and he liked the idea of having a place to let them loose and run around. 

The cost of the project totaled $2,226.65, with grants and donations coming from the Perkins County Community Foundation Fund, Perkins County Youth Development Club, City of Grant Keno Funds, Grant Lions Club, and other family and friends. 

Tines said his family and other scouts assisted with the dog park, which includes several obstacles for dog activities and dog waste bags to keep the park clean. 

Jorje Geisert said they are planning events at the dog park this summer, including “yappy” hour, a “bark”-b-que and a Halloween costume contest this fall.
