WAG & WALK DOG ADOPTION HIKE
Usery Mountain Regional Park
Ruh Roh, make way for the pups! Cuddly canines from the Maricopa County Animal Care & Control east shelter will be hitting the trail again on Saturday October 1st for the 2016-17 premier of Wag & Walk dog adoption hikes. Come on out to beautiful Usery Mountain Regional Park in Mesa and join the dogs on the easy, 1-mile Merkle Trail. Each dog will be accompanied by a volunteer handler who can tell you all about the animal's breed, personality, activity level and history at the shelter. You may also "test drive" the dogs to see how they handle on leash. This is a great opportunity to meet adoptable pets in a relaxed environment where they're more likely to display their loveable vibes. All dogs are already spayed or neutered, are up-to-date on their shots and ready to go directly into their new forever homes. You don't have to be in the market for a new fur baby to join the fun, though.
There will be lot's of information on hiking with dogs, shelter services and how you can sign up to become a volunteer. What could be better than celebrating the beginning of prime hiking season with a bunch of butt wagging dogs?
WHEN: Saturday, Oct. 1, 2016 and every 1st Saturday of the month Oct. - April.
TIME: 9 a.m.
WHERE: Usery Mountain Regional Park. 3939 N. Usery Pass Rd., Mesa. Merkle Trailhead Area 6.
