SFDOG is a non-profit organization that promotes responsible dog ownership/guardianship, offers educational programs for both dog owners/guardians and the general public, and works for increased off-leash recreation opportunities for responsible dog owners/guardians and their canine companions.
If you have not already done so, please sign the online petition opposing the GGNRA's plan to kick people with dogs off of 90% of the land where they currently can walk with their dogs off-leash. Pass this link on to all your friends and ask them to sign, then pass it on to others. Not restricted to SF Bay Area residents. Anyone can sign.
If you have signed a paper version of the petition, you do not need to sign the online one.
On January 14, 2011, the GGNRA released a Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for a new Dog Management Plan. The 2,400-page DEIS looked at impacts of five alternatives for a dog management plan at 21 sites, and selected a sixth as a Preferred Alternative. The Preferred Alternative will severely restrict access for people who want to recreate with their dogs off-leash compared to where they are currently able to do so. [Click here to read the DEIS]
