Volunteers, including Carol and Dave Pendergast, helped spruce up the 1-acre Shelton Dog Park on April 12 for the warm weather season after a harsh winter.

The cleanup was organized by the Friends of the Shelton Dog Park.

The dog park, at Nells Rock Road and Shelton Avenue (Route 108), opened in 2010 and volunteers play an integral role in maintaining its grounds.
