WHO WE ARE…
POOCH consists of a handful of volunteers. We, and others, lobbied the City of Pasadena for more then a decade, asking for an off-leash dog area. (“Parks are for people,” they said at the start of our quest, “not dogs.”)
A tremendous thanks goes to Penelope Douglas, the daughter of the late Alice Frost Kennedy, a Pasadena philanthropist and avid Humane Society supporter. Her continued help, as well as her family’s substantial financial support, were instrumental in the park’s creation. With great gratitude, the off-leash area will be named “Alice’s Park.”
Thanks also to Pasadena Councilmember Steve Haderlein for his determination and ongoing support which have made the off-leash area a reality.
