WAG & WALK DOG HIKE: Season Five is Here!

A past Wag & Walk participant works the crowds
Hiking canines from the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control Mesa shelter are back for Season 5 of Wag & Walk Dog Adoption Hikes with tails wagging, sky-high energy and a special, people-pleasing bonus.
Enjoy hiking in beautiful Usery Mountain Regional Park.
Volunteers will be on site to assist you.

Who could resist a cutie like this?

Adoptable shelter dogs will be hitting the Merkle Trail at Usery Mountain Regional Park in Mesa on Saturday November 3rd in hopes of finding their forever homes. Plus, new for this season, the MCACC mobile adoption bus will be on site so you can purchase or renew your dog's license---without having to pay late fees. Tagging your wag is the best step you can take to be reunited with your pet if he or she gets lost. Regular license fees ($21 for altered dogs and $55 for unaltered dogs) plus proof of rabies vaccination are required.

Shelter dogs get some love on Wag & Walk hikes.
Wag & Walk hikes give you a chance to get a hands-on feel for how your potential new best friend walks on a leash and interacts with other dogs. Take a “test drive” on the easy, 1-mile loop hike followed by a meet-and-greet session back at the trailhead. 
Owned dogs are welcome to participate.
Shelter volunteers will be on hand to share information on each dog’s character, exercise needs, quirks and talents.  If you happen to fall in love with one (or more) of the dogs, you can adopt and take your new buddy home on-the-spot. All dogs are already spayed or neutered, up-to-date on their shots and licensed. 
Energy and fun go through the woof at Wag & Walk events.
Play with adoptable dogs after the hike.
Even if you’re not ready to add a pet to your family, please help support Valley homeless dogs by joining us for a morning of desert hiking and canine silliness.  On-leash, owned dogs with current vaccinations are welcome to participate.
Wagging tails and happy hikers.
The Merkle Trail is an easy, 1-mile stroll.
You don't have to be looking to adopt to participate.
