The Bag dispensers at the entrances have been a great help in keeping the beach clean, but they aren’t free. Mondog purchases bags and fills the bag dispensers on the Dog Beach. Mondog also buys cleaning supplies and maintains the web site and social media areas. Donating to Mondog is a great way to support the dog beach, and keep those dispensers full. Help us help you keep Montrose Dog Beach safe and clean by making a donation today. Your donations are tax deductible.
