Animal Care & Control Wag & Walk Adoption Hike

Saturday, April 1, 2017

Our award-winning Wag N’ Walk Adoption Hike program begins October 1st and runs through April -- taking advantage of cooler weather and allowing shelter dogs the chance to enjoy it, too. Partnering with Maricopa County Parks and Recreation, volunteers bring dogs from MCACC’s East Valley Animal Care Center to Usery Mountain Regional Park in Mesa. Hikers (canine and human) meet at the park’s Merkle Trail for an easy one mile, barrier free hike. The program features dogs that would make great active companions and provides hikers the chance to meet and see the dogs outside of the shelter environment. All dogs come to the hikes with their adoption paperwork to allow for on-site adoptions should hikers fall in love with a new furry hiking companion. While MCACC always hopes for adoptions, if a dog is not adopted, the hikes still provide a great opportunity for animals to get out of their kennels for some exercise and socialization.
