The membership period runs the calendar year of January 1 to December 31. With that in mind we are shutting down new applications for 2014. We suggest you check back near the end of the year to see about signing up for 2015. Planning is underway for 2015 renewals.
Please note that at this time members will no longer be allowed to pick up cards/tags at the rec office. The rec office has been overwhelmed with inquiries from applicants showing up expecting to pick up their cards/tags before their application has been approved. Please allow 3-4 weeks for processing and you will be contacted by firstname.lastname@example.org when your application has been approved. The rec office does not have information about Perry Paw Dog Park Registration status. Perry Paw Dog Park does not have an office at the rec center or staff on hand at the Rec Center Offices. Perry Paw Dog Park Committee is made up of a board of all volunteers. The Rec Office has been kind enough to assist us as a pick-up point for approved applications up to this point. We thank them for assisting in offering the onsite pick up to this point.
Mailed in registrations: Mail is retrieved from our mailbox once a week by a committee member and then turned over to our membership committee for processing. Going forward you will only be able to receive your cards/tags through the mail. Once your application and all documents have been received and validated (process takes 3-4 weeks) you will receive an email from our membership committee notifying you that you have been approved and they will ask you to validate your mailing address at that time.
Online registrations: Online registrations are pulled once a week and turned over to our membership committee for processing. Going forward you will only be able to receive your cards/tags through the mail. Once your application and all documents have been received and validated (process takes 3-4 weeks) you will receive an email from our membership committee notifying you that you have been approved and they will ask you to validate your mailing address at that time.
Documents: Applications received without submitting a copy of your Valid RABIES Certificate & County/City ANIMAL LICENSE (These are 2 separate documents) cannot be processed until these documents have been received.
If you have any questions please contact email@example.com they will be able to assist.
Ladies and Gentlemen, As of tomorrow Saturday, 5/10 our gates will be closed and locked. We were trying to put this off to allow for more members to pick-up or exchange their cards, but too many non-members are taking advantage of our paid park. There have now been almost violent incidents involving those that are not registered and who have no right to be there.
So….if you have not picked up your card/tags….
Options on getting your pass card and ID;
If you have not received your pass card or ID yet we are offering the following options.
1.) Come to the park on Monday 5/12/14 at 5pm to pick-up your packet or exchange your non working card.
2.) There will also be an option where you can come by the rec office during their normal business hours of 9 AM to 3 PM weekdays. You must email us your request that you would like to pick up your card at the rec office. (firstname.lastname@example.org) If you have a card that was previously provided you must bring that with you for an exchange. Again we need an email request the week before you plan to pick it up and your card and/or ID will be left at the rec office for pick up the next week. Please be patient when you go there because this is not a normal task for them and they agreed to do this to facilitate getting the cards out.
3.) If this does not work for you, then we will be mailing cards and/or IDS. Mail us a self addressed businesses envelop with your membership information. We will add the return postage. If you were previously provided a card you will have to mail it back before we will send a replacement card.
Thanks again for your understanding!
If you have not received your pass card or ID yet we are offering the following options.
- There will also be an option where you can come by the rec office during their normal business hours of 9 AM to 3 PM weekdays. You must email us your request that you would like to pick up your card at the rec office. (email@example.com) If you have a card that was previously provided you must bring that with you for an exchange. Again we need an email request this week and your card and/or ID will be left at the rec office for pick up next week. May 5 to May 9. Please be patient when you go there because this is not a normal task for them and they agreed to do this to facilitate getting the cards out.
- Finally if none of these options work then we will be mailing cards and/or IDS. Mail us a self addressed businesses envelop with your membership information. We will add the return postage. If you were previously provided a card you will have to mail it back before we will send a replacement card.
Our goal is that once we have distributed 80% of the cards, but no later than May 15 we will begin to lock the gates. We appreciate everyone’s understanding during this very trying period with the pass cards.
Please Note: We received notice from county management at the recreational office on an upcoming event at Honeygo Run Regional Park that will impact access to the dog park. This was all part of the agreement with the rec council and the county when they agreed to the funding, management and placement of the dog park. Sorry for any inconvenience.
During the weekend of May 2-4, Honeygo will be hosting a large event for the White Marsh Roller Skating Show. On Friday May 2 we cannot have anyone come in after 5pm. On Saturday May 3rd and Sunday May 4th we cannot have anyone there after 12pm noon. They can still come in the mornings on the Saturday and Sunday and most of the day on Friday for that weekend.
Ladies and Gentleman. We have word from the County that the access system has been fixed at the park. We will begin a proper relaunch next Saturday 4/26/14. We will be at the HoneyGo Run Park Rec Office from 9:00am until 2:00pm that day for those who need their packets, card return for those that turned their cards into us and need them back, and card exchange for those that still have cards that do not work. We will be performing these services ONLY at that time. Please bring your card with with you if you need an exchange otherwise there is a $20 fee for replacing any lost or damaged cards. If you bring in a registration form for the first time on Saturday DO NOT plan on getting a card immediately. We have to make sure that we have all of our original paid members taken care of first as they have been waiting patiently for some time.
If you have registered already but have not sent all proper paperwork in to us, please do so immediately. The mail was picked up from the Rec Center on Friday and will be checked again on Monday, anyone mailing items in or dropping them off must have mail there by Monday evening to be processed for the 4/26 pickup. Anyone who has registered or is registering online must have done so and provided ALL proper paperwork by Thursday 4/24/14 at 5:00pm.
The gates will remain in their current open status until we have progressed through the redistribution. All of the volunteers on the Board thank you again for your cooperation and understanding during this time where we were being given very limited information ourselves.
Once the gates are secured, we are operating under SOP(Standard Operating Procedure). This means that all of the rules and regulations that you signed off on when applying for your membership will be enforced. We know the park has been somewhat of a Wild West free for all for a bit but this will change. For your safety, the safety of your animals and others, please follow the rules. If you witness rules being broken, you may report them anonymously to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and our Rules Committe will look into the issue further. Among all, DO NOT allow access to the park to people that do not belong there. If they have a card and it doesn’t work, there may be a reason for that and they need to contact the Membership Committee to resolve.
Thanks again & See You At The Park!
Perry Paw Dog Park Board
We continue to work with the county on getting the lock access system operational. This is as frustrating for you as it is for us. The gates will remain open at this time while we try to get the system working. The dog park is a member based use facility. All rules are to be followed. All dogs should display their identification tags. Memberships can still be applied for through the web site. The membership team is processing memberships as quickly as possible. Most all of the volunteers on the board also have full time jobs. So it does take some time to get to all the paperwork. Please be patient.
Please keep in mind that the Perry Paw Dog Park Committee is an all volunteer organization. With the excitement of the park opening we are receiving a lot of in inquiries. We will respond to all requests received, but please allow time for a response before sending a second message.
The best way to register is online with documents then emailed to email@example.com Documents for online registration still have to be validated and matched to the participant in order to complete processing.
Registrations sent by mail will take longer to process as mail is checked a few times a week. Registrations (online or by mail) that are are incomplete and still need documentation or were processed online with paper documents then mailed will be delayed as we match up and validate those items.
Thank you for your patience!
The Grand Opening will be Saturday, April 5, 2014 at 10:30 AM.
The board will be starting at at the park from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM (except during the grand opening festivities) for new member sign up and for members already signed up to pick up access cards and identification tags.
All members who have pre-registered and provided the appropriate Rabies Certificate & County Animal License to us by Thursday, April 3rd at 5pm can pick up cards & tags at the grand opening. To allow our volunteers time to process registrations, anyone registering online or by mail after Thursday, April 3rd at 5pm will be contacted about the next card/tag distribution. Bring a picture ID to pick up your access card and ID tags.
New members signing up on Grand Opening day MUST bring a COPY of your Rabies Certificate & County Animal License for the city/
Due to limited availability no extra cards will be available for purchase at this time.
If you cannot make the Grand Opening, members of the board will also be at the park Sunday, April 6th. Check back for times. After the Grand Opening we will either set up additional card/tag distribution days or mail them out depending how many cards still need to be distributed at that point.
See you at the Park!
