Make a Shelter Dog's Day!
We're so excited to have our Meetup group back and welcome you all, old and new members! We ask that you arrive at the shelter promptly at 9:30 am for instructions and to give us time to match everyone with a dog for hiking. Arriving on time is CRITICAL to getting the hike started out right and for all the animals to get loaded up properly to be transported to the hike destination (still to be determined at this time). We're so happy you'll be hiking with us, and ask that if for some reason you won't make the hike you change your RSVP accordingly, an accurate count helps us tremendously (we will add spots available as new dogs come into the shelter). We will be hiking at Reflection Riding.

What we're about

Put on your hiking boots, and head down to Pet Placement Center to take a shelter dog for a hike. It can get pretty boring at the shelter, so why not make it a memorable morning for one of our dogs by letting them have a little fun on nice, refreshing hike around Reflection Riding, the Greenway, or Big Soddy Creek Gulf.

Hikes are organized for once or twice a month on Saturdays and Sundays. We will provide treats and poop bags, as well as a well-harnessed pupper who's ready for an adventure. Help a shelter dog get some valuable one on one time with you, as well as socialization with our friendly group of hikers.

We also post opportunities for you to help promote our animals as well as PPC at offsite events. Volunteer help at these events is critical to helping find homes for all of our animals.
