We love our fund raising events! And our favorite fund raiser is…

Join us on January 18th, 2014 for an evening of fun, food, drink, silent auctions and raffles! 100% of the proceeds go towards the park. Invite your friends and family to joins us. This is a human-only event (sorry puppies).

Help us get 200 four-legged members by 2014.
We have over 160 canine members who enjoy unleashing the fun. We all know somebody whose four-legged best friend would also enjoy everything the Carlisle Area Dog Park has to offer – running free, fantastic smells at every tree, friend sniffing, massive tail wagging, stick chasing, group water bowl slurping, chillin’ at the chairs, runningsohardthatyousleepforhours! We can’t keep that all to ourselves, can we?
Of course not! Share the fun! Refer a friend!
From now until the end of the year, all new members get the rest of this year for free with their paid 2014 membership. 2 FREE months of all that tail wagging, tree sniffing, unleashed, “WOOF” worthy F U N!
But wait! There’s more!!
If we reach our goal of 200 four-legged members by 2014 - All new members who sign up between Oct. 1st and December 31st 2013 for a paid 2014 membership will be entered into a drawing for a FREE year’s membership for 2015! Yup! One new member will win a second year membership for their canine companion for FREE!
Not done yet!
Current members can win a FREE year, too! – For every paid new member that you refer between Oct 1st and December 31st, your name will be entered into a separate drawing for a free 2015 membership! Just make sure that your new member notes who referred them to our park on their new membership form! *If the winning member is already a lifetime member, we promise to give you something cool!*

The borough will be paving the driveway leading into Shaffer Park this Thursday and Friday. The dog park will remain open, but members will have to park elsewhere and walk to the park. Sorry for the late notice! We’re looking forward to the improved driveway.
Come visit us at Knisely’s Vaccine Seminar and Doggie Ice Cream Social on September 7th! You can learn about our up coming “open weekend” at the park for folks and pups who are thinking about joining our park!
Are you getting ready to clear out those closets in time for back to school? Want an easy way to donate those clothes, bedding, and other household items? Drop them off in the Community Aid bin at Knisely’s! Proceeds from your donations in this bin go directly to CADPA.
The Tastefully Simple foods are delicious and make great dishes for entertaining or wonderful gifts! Our goal is for each of us to place an order for one or two items and ask a friend to do the same. It will be a huge help to CADPA! Just click on the link below …. and then sleep well tonight, knowing that you have done your part for your best friend/s!
Come to the party on Thursday to have a drink (beer, wine, soda) and taste some of the great foods. Let us know if you need directions!
