Each Saturday Pets Alive Westchester Animal Shelter holds an orientation for new volunteers. The orientation lasts about an hour...join me. After that we'll spend some time hanging with or walking the pups.
Afterwards, head to nearby Graham Hills Country Park for a fairly brisk 2 - 3 hour hike (Lots of hills...the pace will be moderate+, at least for me.) We will stop to socialize though, but the hills will get your heart pumping.
Feel free to join me at the orientation, OR just come for the hike at Graham Hills (which will start approx. 12:30.)
Sadly, I doubt any of the shelter dogs will be permitted to join us on the Graham Hills Hike, but this is obviously a dog-friendly hike.
To reach the animal shelter, take route 9A north from 119 till you see Sam's Club. Turn left (west) and follow the signs.

Please Note: the Orientation starts at 10 AM, but it fills up quickly. I listed this event last week (with a different group) and when we arrived at 9:50, the room was already filled (capacity 40) and they turned us away. So I'm suggesting you arrive at 9 to make sure you get in.
Graham Hills Country Park is on route 117, accross from Pace Univ. in Pleasantville. From the shelter, return to 9A, head north and exit at 117. Turn right and see the entrance to the park in a few hundred yards on the right.
Hope to see you there!
There is no fee for this event. You attend at your own risk. Hiking and/or hanging out with dogs (shelter or otherwise) can be dangerous!!! We are not professionals and we can't promise that you will be safe!
