For Immediate Release
Knoxville Named Most Dog Friendly City in the Southeast
August 4, 2011 - The City of Knoxville has been recognized as the most dog-friendly city in the Southeast by Dog Fancy Magazine according to a press release from the Knoxville-based PetSafe.

In 2009, the widely-read national magazine for dog owners recognized the City of Knoxville's Dogwood Park in its annual "America's Best Dog Parks" contest.

Knoxville and Knox County are home to four off-leash dog parks and two more are in the planning stages thanks in large part to PetSafe. The pet products and services company has donated $500,000 for the development of dog parks here.

The new issue of Dog Fancy Magazine arrives on the stands later this month.

More information about efforts to make Knoxville the best city in America for pets is available at www.mostpetfriendlycommunity.com.

More information about the City of Knoxville's dog parks in addition to links about its greenways, other city parks, the Mardi Growl Dog Parade and Young-Williams Animal Center is available at www.cityofknoxville.org/recreation/dogparks.asp.
