Two Girl Scouts, Kristen Hickey and Anna Colanduoni, have helped to build the park in Upper Macungie Park off Route 100 in Fogelsville, but their fundraising efforts can only stretch so far.
The board needs a total of $17,000 to fully complete the park, which covers about three-quarters of an acre, with pavement and double-gated fencing to accommodate both large and small dogs.
"Residents have said (opening a dog park) is one of the highest priorities in the township," said board member Rich Kiser. "We have the plans but no budget."
Ground was broken for the dog park earlier this year, and the board, with financial assistance from supervisors, opened the park.
Supervisors will examine the matter during their Nov. 3 meeting.
