What you'll do

Enjoy fabulous Coronado Dog Beach w/ rescue pups!

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!

Here's to unique experiences! The weekend I visited San Diego, the weather was not ideal for anything water related and I was interested in experiencing something different and this is a special one! It was great to do something that was beneficial for animals who are in need of good homes, beneficial to a great cause, fun, scenic, and active. I recommend this experience to anyone AND everyone, I plan to do it again whenever I'm back in SD.

This was an amazing experience! We were able to get our dog fix in San Diego while feeling like we helped these dogs a little. The pups were all so sweet and our guides were amazing and so knowledgeable!

It was heartwarming to see the dogs enjoying the outdoors and getting more comfortable with both being around people who cared for them and other stimuli. The dogs were very sweet and it was very clear that each of the foster/rescue "parents" were passionate about the animals and their quality of life.

My boyfriend and I had a great time walking rescue dogs and being able to help them get adopted :) it is a beautiful leisurely walk and the dogs are adorable.

Great way to give back to animals in need, and to help support a great nonprofit that truly cares about all breeds. It’s a wonderful leisurely morning walk, and you get to help socialize these wonderful pups to help get them ready for adoption.

I am a little scared of dogs but am an avid animal lover so I booked this to help me overcome some fears and to help the organization/rescue dogs. Stephanie was our “guide” and she made sure I was comfortable but made sure I got to walk all the dogs and that dogs and I were safe. It’s a great cause and you can see Stephanie really cares about the animals and know a lot. I hope to do this again when I’m in the area. A beach walk with dogs is a great Saturday morning!
