What you'll do

Kids Love It! Adults Love It!
And the dogs will love that you came to walk them and play with them.

We'll all meet at the amazing Shelter Island! You will meet our pack of rescue dogs of all sizes and origins, and help us exercise, socialize and publicize them! It helps these neglected (and sometimes abused) dogs learn to trust people again, and socializes them for public adoption events!

We will walk the dogs the length of the Island and back, with great views of the marina, the ocean and across to the Navy yards. You will play with the dogs, help socialize them including treat-time, and get lot's of Instagram worthy photos!

We will end at the beach , and then you will have time to explore Shelter Island and perhaps grab a coffee at a local shop!
Other things to note
It will probably be sunny! Wear sunscreen.
You may want to wade in the water, or even swim, dress appropriately for that, and for the sand!

Thoroughly enjoyed walking all the different dogs and supporting an organization that helps to keep dogs with their owners/friends. Stephanie was amazing leading the group and telling us all about the dogs. Would definitely do this again.

Stephanie was an incredible host. The dogs were so friendly and all had their unique personalities that you learn to love even more through the stories she tells about them along the walk. This experience is the perfect way to do something amazing for the dogs while having fun and learning about Shelter Island. 10/10 would recommend.

Great experience with a very knowledgable host and well-trained dogs. However it started and ended late so make sure you plan with some wiggle room

Its a very great experience and you get to feed a treat to all the dogs as well as walk them. Great scenery, its definitely worth the money. Its summer though so I encourage wearing comfortable clothes and bring water for hydration. The host did provide us all with waters which was nice.

Highly recommend! It’s really nice to get to know the story behind these dogs. Stephani was great! She made sure we knew about a couple of rules before walking the pack. She even stoped to tell us a couple of stories about other wild life in our surrounding areas. Over, an amazing walk, beautiful view of shelter island, great San Diego weather, and meeting awesome dogs and other amazing humans that’s care about rescues and supporting them in any way they can.
