FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. Do I have to sign up for each park? No, you have to choose a home park. However, if you ever want to visit one of the other dog parks you may do so.
2. How many permits are available right now? Permits are available for all dog run locations.
3. If I had a dog park permit in 2012, do I have to provide vaccination and licensing information again? Yes.
4. What vaccinations are required? Rabies, Parvo, Distemper and Kennel Cough (also known as Bordetella). We also recommend your dog be on a flea and heartworm preventative, but this isn't required.
5. Where do I get the Louisville Metro Animal Services registration? You can apply at your vet's office or on the web at http://www.louisvilleky.gov/AnimalServices/.
6. Do I have to obtain a Louisville Metro dog license if I live outside of Louisville Metro? No, but we strongly recommend that you check with your local Animal Control office to see if your community requires a dog license (and yes, Oldham Countians, there is a license requirement in Oldham County).
7. How long does it take for my application to be processed? We typically check the mail twice each week, but if you submit your materials in person at one of the locations listed above you get your permit instantly.
8. If I buy a 2013 permit now do I have to wait until January 1 to start using the dog runs? No.
9. What forms of payment do you accept? If you mail the application you can only pay by check or money order. If you take the application to Feeders Supply you can pay with any form of payment accepted at the stores since your permit will be rung up at the register.
DOG PARK PERMITS
The Louisville Dog Run Association's primary goal is to oversee the maintenance and continued improvement of dog parks in E.P. "Tom" Sawyer State Park and the Louisville Metro Parks system. Since the LDRA does not receive funds from any local or state governmental agency, all users of the dog parks will be required to have an official Dog Park Permit to use the area. This type of system has been used very successfully in many communities across the nation (including Indianapolis and Minneapolis).
The cost of the 2013 Dog Park Permit is $30.00 for the first dog, $20.00 for the second dog, $10.00 for the third dog, and $5.00 per additional dog in the same household. All funds from the sale of the Dog Park Permits will go towards the dog parks' maintenance and improvement costs. The permit will allow unlimited use of the dog parks through December 31, 2013.
You may apply for a permit by completing and returning the permit application along with proof of your dog's vaccination and Louisville Metro registration (click here if you don't have a dog license ). To get a copy of the dog park permit application in Adobe PDF format click HERE for the Dog Park application. You may also fill out the HTML Form below if you are not able to access the PDF Form. We typically check the mail twice a week, so please expect a week to a week and a half to pass before you receive your permit in the mail.
