One of our most popular volunteer activities is our Hiking Hounds program! Volunteers take our most energetic shelter dogs on hikes as part of our enrichment programming. There are no prerequisites and participants are not required to be current volunteers. If you love hiking in the great outdoors with dogs who are excited to be out of the shelter for a while, this is the activity for you!
For more information about Hiking Hounds (including physical requirements and guidelines) or to request an application, please e-mail ahshikinghounds[at]outlook[dot]com.
Upcoming hike dates:
9am start for seasoned hikers, 8:30am for new hikers.
We will ask that no one sign up for our hikes if they are at risk (of COVID-19) or have compromised immune systems. If you sign up and begin to feel ill, we ask that you cancel immediately.
*Space is limited. Confirmed reservations are required for each hike.
