 LOST YOUR DOG ?

We will help. As pet owners, we are motivated assist animals and their owners in need.

 

LOST YOUR DOG ?

 

After you post a Lost Dog ALERT, we will send out a "Find Fido Alert" and mobilize our Search Teams, notify our membership, contact the Eastham Neighborhood Watch and The Chamber of Commerce.  Volunteers will help with the placement of posters and assist with search efforts. 

   
   

Dog walkers and Neighborhood Watch

A perfect match for community service!

The Neighborhood Watch of Eastham is interested in recruiting new volunteers.  

Many EDOA members are also Neighborhood Watch Block Captains and it makes perfect sense.

Dog owners are walking their pets through Eastham's neighborhoods so why not get a little training and keep an eye on our community at the same time?

Interested?  More information and contacts.

Dog Park - an EDOA Members' Survey


The results of the EDOA Dog Park Survey have been released.  Participation was extraordinary. 

See the analysis and comments made by participants.

Please note: there is no dog park in Eastham planned or sought at this time.  This survey was solely for the purpose of assessing member interest and point of view on the topic.  Eastham Dog Owners' Association has taken no position on a dog park for Eastham.
