Walk and socialize to help shelter pups!

For those who can’t make it to the Mighty Texas Dog Walk this year, dog lovers can come together on a smaller scale on April 22 to exercise, socialize and raise money to buy puppy milk for Austin Pets Alive! (APA!) shelter pups.

When: Sunday, April 22, 2012 Meet us at 9:45am for a 10am start. Get to APA! (Town Lake Animal Shelter’s old location) by 9:30am if you’re checking out a shelter dog. (registration required if you're checking out a shelter dog. Email: [masked])

Where: Lady Bird Lake Hike and Bike Trail. Meet on Stephen F Austin Drive (close to Austin High School and Texas Rowing Center).

Admission: $10 for individuals, $20 for families Payable by cash or check (make it out to Austin Pets Alive). ALL MONEY IS DONATED TO APA!

Details: We’ll do just part of the trail loop to keep the walk short and sweet in case it’s hot! Bring your own dog or email us ([masked]) to sign you up to take out a dog at the shelter. Pack lots of water for you and your dog and a morning snack to enjoy during a mid-walk break.

The walk should take about 1.5 – 2 hours at a slow pace.

    Great time with new friends! Next time we'll make the starting point a little more obvious because we heard some people couldn't find us. We had a total of 7 dog walkers with dogs big and small on Lady Bird Trail.

    Hi everyone! Really looking forward to tomorrow. :)

    Just a few details: Meet near the Texas Rowing Center on Stephen F Austin Dr. for a 10am start (so try to get there a little early to find us and park). If you have questions text or call me[masked]-1926. The walk will take an hour and we'll stop for a snack and photo mid-way so bring some nibbles if you'd like. See you then! :)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
