Proceeds benefit the Parkway Foundation’s Pups in the Park program. Pups in the Park provides “Mutt Mitt” dog waste removal bags at 17 stations along the American River Parkway, which ensures bacteria and toxins from pet waste do not pollute our waterways. In 2017, the Parkway Foundation purchased 60,000 “Mutt Mitts” to be placed along the Parkway!
