Michele Morrow had an idea of building a memorial to honor Floyd, an adorable seven-pound local chihuahua, who was tortured and killed by his owner in a tragic senseless act of violence in June 2016. Since then, Michele has devoted her time working with our staff to dedicate an area at the Park that will cultivate community compassion for our animals and strive to raise awareness to prevent animal abuse.
Floyd’s Memorial is being constructed next to the restrooms above the soccer fields. The Memorial will feature a garden, where a remarkable statue of Floyd, sculpted by Bud Bottoms, will be placed; a drinking fountain that serves dogs and people; and, an artistic ceramic tile wall created by local artist, Sheryl Wheeler from donations by individuals who purchase tiles embellished with their dog’s paw prints.
You can contribute to the Memorial by purchasing a 6×6 ceramic tile, which will display your dog’s paw and name. The cost of a tile is $250, and only one dog paw can be printed per tile. Your tile will be placed at Floyd’s Memorial behind the water fountain, creating a beautiful tile wall, displaying your commitment to this special cause. Your tile purchase is tax deductible.
Please help us send a message of community support and commitment to kindness for all animals. Our hope is to grow this vision long into the future.
