The new Dog Park will sit on 2.3 acres of gated land in Oregon which will be divided between small and large dogs with an open shelter between the two areas. Toledo Unleashed will operate the park similar to the Glass City Dog Park in Toledo, Ohio. Yearly memberships will be available to dog owners and the park will be monitored each business day to ensure it is maintained and members follow the rules.

This new Dog Park has been in the planning stages for a while and last year, after conversations with the Larry Schaffer family, the City partnered with them to make Jake & Cooper’s Bark Park a reality. Their son, Jacob, tragically lost his life in the summer of 2021 from addiction and mental health. The family would like to pay forward the love that Jacob had for his Australian Shepherd puppy, Cooper, in a positive and meaningful way.

The Dog Park has been set up as a 501 c3 nonprofit, so donations will be gratefully accepted to honor his memory and make this Dog Park a peaceful and heartfelt place for all to visit. For immediate questions, please contact Larry Schaffer at 419-349-7981 or 419-698-4301.

A grand opening celebration will be planned for next spring to unveil Jake & Cooper’s Bark Park in Oregon, Ohio!
