Who Let the Dogs Out? You Did!

HikinghoundsIf you're looking for a way to let the dogs out -- and get some outdoor enjoyment of your own at the same time -- why not consider joining either Hiking Hounds or Urban Tails offered by Asheville Humane Society? Both programs offer you the opportunity to take dogs from the Adoption Center out for exercise and stimulation. You not only give the doggies some outdoor time, you benefit from the exercise and fresh air as well.

Hiking Hounds takes hiking excursions in Bent Creek forest two Sunday mornings each month. The February hikes are February 9 and February 23. Volunteers must fill out an application and sign a waiver prior to departure. Volunteers are matched up with appropriate dogs. Pre-registration is required, so if you would like to participate, contact Hiking Hounds directly via email prior to each hike: Check out the Hiking Hounds Facebook page for more information: .

Urban Tails offers less strenuous strolls two Saturday mornings each month. They are designed to provide moderate exercise and to expose dogs to the outside world. February outings are February 8 and February 22. New participants must attend an orientation 30 minutes prior to the outing. Pre-registration is required, so if you would like to participate, email: .
