Friends -- thank you SO much for helping SFDOG re-open Ft. Funston during the partial government shutdown. It meant so much to so many people and dogs who were able to enjoy their favorite place over the last few weeks. We very much hope that there's not another shutdown in February, but, because of you, we'll be in a position to help out again if it's needed. Any funds that are left over after our government gets out of crisis mode will be spent making sure Ft. Funston and other parts of the GGNRA remain dog friendly forevermore!

More Info

UPDATE: Jan. 11 the GGNRA re-opened the Fort Funston parking lot because SFDOG is paying to clean up trash and portable toilets. Background info is below.

SFDOG has asked the GGNRA to open the parking lot at Fort Funston during the partial government shutdown. People are continuing to access and use Fort Funston despite the closed lot and are instead parking alongside the highway. The limited, narrow shoulder parking is routinely packed with parked cars that stretch from the park entrance to as far as the eye can see. Many people unload their young children and pets from the highway side of their car, further congesting traffic as they then walk along the shoulder or in the highway lane on their way to the beach. The current situation isn't safe for people or their pets.

The GGNRA has agreed to open the lot if SFDOG maintains Fort Funston during the shutdown by removing trash from the trash bins on a daily basis and having the porta potties cleaned. This will cost $1,542 per week.

Will you please help us make this a reality? Let's keep ourselves and our dogs save, keep Fort Funston open to the public, and take care of a place we love. All donations to SFDOG are tax deductible.
