Desoto Dog Park

The mission of the Desoto Dog Park is to establish a gated, off-leash dog park for well behaved dogs to exercise in a clean, safe environment. In 2012, the Hot Springs Village Friends of the Dog Park was established to create this park and include volunteers from existing property owners, POA board members, and dog lovers. Check out their website at Desoto Dog Park.

Lily Alert

The Lily Alert is named for the standard poodle, Lily, who was lost and missing for several weeks before being found, due in part to many efforts by AWL members. The Lily Alert was initiated to step up the efforts to locate missing pets.

If a pet is missing, immediately call animal control at 922-6547. To expand the coverage, call the AWL at 915-9337 and ask to participate in the Lily Alert program. The volunteer on duty will instruct the pet owner as to the procedures involved. Or, email a photo, description, and contact information to contactus@hsvawl.org. Once initiated, the pet’s description and contact information will go out to AWL membership by E-blast and website. Pet registration with the POA will increase the potential for a happy ending!

To be included in Lily Alert emails, send your email address to membership@hsvawl.org and we will add you to the list.

Lost and Found Pets

LOST pets: Contact POA Animal Control at 922-6547, and then call the Animal Welfare League at 915-9337 for additional help finding your pet. We will help you publicize the pet in the Village and give you other tips on finding your pet.

FOUND pets: These pets are admitted to Animal Control or rescued through other community sources and may be someone’s lost pets. Their photos are posted, so please contact Animal Control if you may be the owner or have information that may help reunite a pet with its owner: 922-6547.
