Your well-mannered pooch is welcome to join you for this event! He or she will enjoy the event as much as you! Please make sure it is up to date on his/her rabies vaccine, and on a leash no longer than 6′ for everyone’s safety. Extendable leashes must be locked at a 6′ length. Dogs in heat are not allowed. We’ll have poop bags available at the check-in table if you forget your own!
So come on out, take a walk, and have some fun at the park. It’s a great way to stay “young at heart” and help homeless senior pets at the same time!
