The Donalda arena is open from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Friday to people who would like to take their dog out for a walk inside. It’s a great way to have your pet enjoy a social time out while getting exercise. If you know your dog is more aggressive or growly, then please make sure you put a muzzle on your pet before entering the building. There is a small user fee and Maria is the person to call to register for the indoor doggy doo at 883-2188 or at 883-2521. Remember to bring a plastic bag with you to help keep the facility clean.

Until Jan. 31, the Village of Donalda has discounted rates for utilities prepaid for the entire year. Dog licences need to be purchased by the end of the month as well. These will save money and any unwanted fines.
