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!

We loved walking Addie and Stormy with Stephanie. Not only was Stephanie very easy to talk to and welcoming but the dogs were so happy to get out and play on the beach!

This was a fantastic experience led by a great host and super friendly, adorable dogs. I love that the proceeds from booking this experience go toward the care of animals whose families may not be able to afford care. I’ll be sure to book anytime I visit San Diego in the future.
