The Montana Trails Recreation and Parks recently awarded Paws to Play a Citation of Merit for its continued support of Kalispell Parks and Recreation and Kalispellís first dog park.

When it was formed in 2015, Paws to Playís mission was to create a safe, natural environment where dogs can experience life off-leash in Kalispell.

During its first two years, they organized more than 15 different volunteer and fundraising opportunities and the hard work paid off in 2017 when the Kalispell City Council voted to create the first dog park.

Paws to Play has continued its fundraising efforts with five to seven events and volunteer clean-up initiatives every year. The group currently is working to raise money for an Americans with Disabilities Act-compliant path, agility course, restrooms and other features.

To date, Paws to Play, through various grants and donations, has contributed more than $21,000 for fencing, benches, signs and other improvements.
