Dumb Friends League Wag’n Trail
Information provided by The Dumb Friends League
Grab your boots, your hat, and your dog’s favorite leash and follow the trail of wet noses and wagging tails at the ninth annual Dumb Friends League Wag `n Trail. The 1.6-mile hike for people and their pups takes place Saturday, September 21 from 8 a.m. to noon at Glendale Farm Open Space. All the money raised goes to help the homeless pets at the Dumb Friends League Buddy Center.
Participants are encouraged to sign up early, and then start collecting pledges to earn prizes. You can hike the trail at your own pace any time between 8 a.m. and noon. If you raise at least $75 in pledges, you will receive a long-sleeved Wag`n Trail t-shirt, ice cream for you and your dog, and a professional photo of you and your hound hiking along the trail.
Following the hike, animal lovers can enjoy flyball demonstrations and refreshments, as well as purchase pet-related merchandise and food from local vendors. There is also a five-acre, off-leash dog park located near the trailhead.
The Dumb Friends League provides shelter and care for more than 20,000 homeless pets each year, 5,000 of which come through the doors of the Buddy Center in Castle Rock. In addition to adopting out homeless pets, the League offers other programs and services, including lost and found, behavior training, humane education and animal cruelty investigations.
