We’re excited to be just days away from our biggest event of the year, our 19th Annual Hound Hike! We hope all of our adopters and supporters can join us on Sunday the 27th from 12:00pm –
3:00pm at the Goddard Park Carousel. The Hound Hike is always a volunteer favorite because we get to see so many old friends again! You’ll find dogs adopted recently and even some who have been coming to the Hound Hike for years, not to mention their smiling humans.
To participate in the 1 or 2-mile hike – depending on your preference – click here. Register early, as the first 150 participants will receive a goody bag! Remember you can make your donation go farther with pledge support from family and friends! Everyone who raises an additional $50 in pledges will receive a Hound Hike T-shirt.
Before the hike, we’ll have some fun activities the whole family can enjoy! Browse our vendor tables, purchase raffle tickets for some fantastic prizes (including our Lottery Tree of 100 scratch tickets), and get your dog’s photo taken at our photo booth. Then bring your dog to Reverend Noel Bailey’s Blessing of the Animals to kick off the 1:00pm walk!
After the hike, enjoy music from our D.J. while all walkers receive a free lunch, courtesy of Fresco’s Restaurant and Dave’s Marketplace! We’ll be awarding prizes to the biggest fundraisers, oldest and biggest dogs, and more. http://egapl.com/?p=3506 http://egapl.com/?p=3506And finally you’ll want to stick around for the announcement of the raffle winners!
Thank you to everyone who has already registered and
to everyone who will register soon. We’re confident that we’ll have a beautiful day (note the hike carries on, rain or shine) and with your help, this will be the biggest, best Hound Hike yet!
