Dogs, Trails, and Ales

Binky Lee Preserve | Sun, March 10, 2019, 1:00pm - 3:00pm

This spring hike is going to the dogs! Bring your friendly pooch or visit with one from All 4 Paws Rescue (more info under tell me more), who will be on hand with adorable adoptables. Trainers from Pepper’s Paws will offer guidance for teaching dogs good leash walking behavior. End the trail hike with a refreshing ale…or a ginger ale for those under 21!

Are you interested in adoption or do you just want to meet the dogs? Stop on by, no need to register! Otherwise, join us for a hike and ale.

Binky Lee Preserve is an expanse of former agricultural land that is being converted back to natural woodlands and meadows. Returning the land to nature actually requires a great deal of care and skill. For more than two decades, we’ve employed a range of restoration techniques to improve these habitats so plants and wildlife can thrive, and for people to enjoy.

More than 10,000 native trees have been planted on the preserve—a process known as afforestation—in an effort to expand the wooded areas. In other sections of the preserve, by not mowing we allow them to return to woodlands on their own. While it won’t happen overnight—and we’ll need to try to mitigate the impact of deer and invasive plants—these trees will eventually and provide critical forest habitat for wildlife.

Dress for the season and wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, for walking on uneven or wet terrain.

Dog should be friendly, and must be on leash. Don’t forget water bowls and poop bags!

All 4 Paws Meet & Greets are a great way to get to know the rescue, meet some of their dogs, and ask questions face to face. While the rescue does not process adoptions at these events, approved adopters are able to meet potential forever family members and – if a fit with the whole family – bring them home at an adoption appointment later on that same day! Already an approved adopter and hoping to meet your new family member at this event? Please bring cash or check for the adoption fee with you. For those just considering adopting, Meet & Greets are a great way to get a feel for the types of dogs we have available.

Interested in adopting? Get a head start and fill out an application before the event. An application, a full list of adoptable pets, and more information regarding our rescue and adoption process can be found at www.all4pawsrescue.com. Please contact the rescue directly with any questions: info@all4pawsrescue.com
