Dog Hike In Pine Mountain
Animal Ark Rescue – Our first hike in Pine Mountain went so well we decided to make it a monthly field trip! Anyone 18yrs or older with a valid photo I.D. may participate. **No children will be allowed on the group hike for safety reasons. If you have a child and would like to take a shelter dog on an outing or hike individually, you may swing by the shelter any day during business hours and check out a child-friendly dog for an outing.** Children 16yrs or older may participate if accompanied by an adult. We will meet at the shelter at 8am sharp. Participants will need to be able to transport a dog of their choosing to Pine Mountain and back to the shelter. You may bring a crate to transport if you like. We have some airline kennels available, but limited quantity. We recommend you come to the shelter a few days before to select a dog to hike with (take them on a test walk if needed). **If you plan on transporting and hiking with 2 dogs, please come to the shelter 1-2 days prior to the hike to be matched with a pair of dogs** We are going to be hiking the Overlook Loop Trail. The trail is 3.4 miles. You will need to pay a fee to park in Pine Mountain. See the Pine Mountain Trail Association website for more details: http://www.pinemountaintrail.org Things to bring: -Flat leash (No retractable leashes allowed) -water (for you and the dog) -bowl -sunscreen -bug spray -snacks/dog treats -picnic lunch (optional) You are welcome to pack a lunch and picnic with us after the hike or you may head back to the shelter right after to drop your dog off. The choice is yours. **This outing is for Shelter dogs only. No personal dogs allowed** This hike will take place rain or shine! This is a public event and any adults are welcome.
