Beneful originally rolled out the Beneful Dream Dog Park Project six years ago, and in that time, has given more than two million dollars in donations! The money has been used to enhance existing dog parks and to build new ones in over 20 communites in the country.

All nominated dog parks are unique in their design and their needs for improvement. Some of the things the winning prize money could go to range from extra benches and tables (we’re sure the dogs want humans to be comfy too!), dog-friendly landscaping and shade structures to agility equipment or even water features similar to human splash parks!
