What you'll do

Kids Love It! Adults Love It!
And the dogs will love that you came to walk them and play with them.

We'll all meet at the amazing Shelter Island! You will meet our pack of rescue dogs of all sizes and origins, and help us exercise, socialize and publicize them! It helps these neglected (and sometimes abused) dogs learn to trust people again, and socializes them for public adoption events!

We will walk the dogs the length of the Island and back, with great views of the marina, the ocean and across to the Navy yards. You will play with the dogs, help socialize them including treat-time, and get lot's of Instagram worthy photos!

We will end at the beach , and then you will have time to explore Shelter Island and perhaps grab a coffee at a local shop!
Other things to note
It will probably be sunny! Wear sunscreen.
You may want to wade in the water, or even swim, dress appropriately for that, and for the sand!

Such a fun time socializing with the puppies! A great way to get a taste of a different part of San Diego, as we have never been to Shelter Island. Stephani had a plethora of stories to tell and wisdom to share. A perfect experience for dog lovers. A plus—the proceeds go to a beautiful cause. Thank you Free Animal Doctor for your mission and values and thank you Stephani for a personalized experience with the dogs!

Truly an amazing experience for Dog lovers! My husband and I enjoyed getting to meet and walk the dogs. If you’re visiting or even a local, this is definitely an excellent experience to get some exercise and love on some pups! We will definitely book this experience again when visit San Diego in the future.

This was my second time walking the rescue dogs. It’s always a great time. Stephani does an excellent job telling stories about both the dogs and the San Diego area. 100% of the proceeds go to helping dogs ~ so what a great experience with a purpose! I’ll probably do it every time I visit the SD area!
