Wescott Park is home to one of the area’s most popular dog parks. It is located just off of Dorchester Road near neighborhoods like: Kings Grant, Cedar Grove, Wescott Plantation and Coosaw Creek Country Club. Almost any time of day you’re sure to find several pooches to keep your pup company. I try to take our dog Petunia daily, and it is without a doubt the highlight of her day.
This past weekend while at the park, we saw an influx of happy pups. I later found out that these dogs were from Sinbad-Sadie Second Chance Rescue. It was wonderful to see these dogs joining in the fun with other dogs that have already found their forever homes.
It is also a story that hits home. Petunia is our second rescue, our first was a lab/beagle mix named Goldie. She was heartworm positive when we adopted her and had been through a pretty rough life. The next 6 years, Goldie brought us more joy than we could ever have imagined. We considered ourselves lucky to be able to give her a loving home for the last 6 years of her life. After taking some time to process Goldie’s loss, we adopted Petunia, a 3 month old puppy from the Frances R. Willis SPCA.
We’re not quite sure of Petunia’s lineage, but she definitely brings plenty of excitement to our home. The dog park at Wescott Park provides an excellent outlet for her boundless energy. Like all youngsters, she’s made plenty of friends, and looks forward to seeing them each day.
This weekend, the folks at Sinbad-Sadie Second Chance Rescue will be holding a bake sale at Pet Supplies Plus at The Corner at Wescott from 12-3pm. The proceeds from the bake sale will go to help offset medical costs of three dogs that need surgeries. It is also a great chance to see some of the pups looking for a place to call home. You never know, one may be the perfect match for you and your family.
If you’re looking for a way to keep your dog entertained, Wescott Park is definitely a place that you need to check out. If you’re thinking about bringing a dog into your home, definitely check out groups like Sinbad-Sadie or the SPCA.
