DID YOU KNOW THAT IN SEATTLE THERE ARE MORE DOGS THAN KIDS?

Seattle is in desperate need of more off-leash areas, having less than most major American cities. With approximately 25 acres of dog parks, and approximately 150,000 dogs in the city, our off-leash areas are extremely crowded and over-used.

OUR HISTORY

For over 20 years, COLA has been the 501c3 non-profit advocate for dog owners like you. COLA lobbied Seattle officials for every dog park Seattle has, manages the existing ones with volunteer stewards, and financially supplements the Parks Department's efforts for sand

and gravel, puddle prevention, and many other basic necessities.

We work with Seattle Parks and Recreation as specified in the Dog Off-Leash Master Plan. We are dedicated to work with communities to help advocate for new off-leash in Seattle.
