 Final Wag & Walk dog adoption hike of the season is April 5, 2014
Volunteers with Wag & Walk dogs

The heat is on and that means the dogs of Maricopa County Animal Care & Control's Mesa shelter have one more opportunity to impress you with their cuteness, leash manners and walking skills on Usery Mountain Park's Merkle Trail for the final adoption hike of the season. Participants are encourged to "test drive" the adoptable dogs and see how well they get along with other canines on this family-friendly trek. This is a special opportunity for those looking to adopt because the dogs are often more relaxed and exhibit their true pup personalities outside of the shelter environment. All Wag & Walk dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and ready to go home on the spot! So, come on out with a spare leash and an open heart for one (or more) of these deserving canine companions. Hikes will resume in November.
