Hikes with Hounds
Friday, February 14, 2020
Burlington Animal Services has partnered with both Burlington and Graham's Recreation & Parks departments to provide Hikes with Hounds.
Hikes with Hounds matches trained volunteers with shelter dogs on a once-a-month, group hike on local trails in Alamance County. This volunteer opportunity offers adoptable dogs at Burlington Animal Services an enrichment activity that allows the dogs to enjoy nature, socialize with people and exercise. (It does the same for volunteers!)
BECOMING A VOLUNTEER
Must be 18 years of age or older
Must be able to hike up to 4 miles at a moderate pace on uneven and natural surface terrain
Must attend volunteer orientation training before becoming a trail dog walker (see below)
