Today, I was saddened to find an email in my inbox that my "co-founder" had forwarded to me in response to that flyer. It is from Mark Heiny, a Board Member for DOGPAW (the company that runs all of this area's dog parks). It says:
DOGPAW constructs and maintains the information kiosks for posting of our organizations information and approved advertisements (Non-profit and paid advertisers). Since your meet-ups require a fee they would be considered a for-profit advertiser.
If you are interested in advertising at the Dakota Park or all four of our parks, please see below for further details and cost. If you do not wish to sign up to advertise at the parks, we kindly ask that you do not continue to post your company information on the kiosks.
DOGPAW welcomes your advertising and sponsorship. Reach your target audience - and support the DOGPAW mission - a low-cost, high-traffic message promoting your business.
We offer in-park advertising on banners, flyers, and business cards. Your advertising donation also includes a "sponsor spotlight" logo link on each of our web pages. Our website attracts approx 1200 visitors per month and our parks have approx 1600 total visitors per day.
Please submit your “dog related” advertisement, completed form, and payment to DOGPAW.
