MSPCA Cuts Daytime Hours at On-Site Dog Park

Public access to one of the few fenced-in areas for dogs in Jamaica Plain will be trimmed significantly starting next Monday. The JP-based Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has several areas for dogs on its campus. It keeps the dog park tucked into the corner of South Huntington and Perkins open to the public. The space is well-used, to say the least. Former grassy areas are now dirt.
