To launch the park, Achieva partnered with Suncoast Animal League, a non-profit no-kill animal rescue agency dedicated to the protection and welfare of animals.
“A core value of Achieva is reaching out to the community and being inclusive, and in this case, that means people’s pets too,” said Achieva Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Tara Murphy. “Opening a good dog park is a wonderful way for us to give back to the community in a very personal way, and we’re thrilled to have all these new and furry visitors nearby.”
All proceeds from the event will go to the Achieva Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation, which provides classroom grants to local schools.
