What are the Hikin' Buddies & Paws Around Town Programs?
At Hikin’ Buddies, you can take a Shelter dog for a hike, or hang out and socialize some of the smaller dogs. It is a great opportunity to meet some of the Shelter’s adoptable dogs as well as to learn more about the organization. All are welcome to join in throughout the summer, weather permitting. Meet at the Adam’s Gulch trailhead from 9:30-1:00 Wednesdays. No appointment is necessary; just bring your family and friends to have a good time with some dogs that would love to meet you! *Dogs go out on hikes on a first come first serve basis*
Also, the Shelter will now be doing adoptions at Adam’s Gulch during Hikin’ Buddies! Come and meet the dogs, take them for a walk, and if you fall in love – an Adoption Counselor will be on site to help you complete the adoption!
Directions to Adam’s Gulch: Take Hwy 75 north through the city of Ketchum. As you drive next to the Bigwood Golf course you will see a left hand turn for Adam’s Gulch. Follow this road as it winds towards the hill. At the T in the road go left, and you will soon see the Adam’s Gulch parking lot and the Animal Shelter tent and van.
Paws Around Town
Meet and greet shelter pets at Paws Around Town at Ketchum Town Square throughout the summer, weather permitting. At the Paws Around Town offsite adoption event, you can meet shelter pets and learn about the Shelter’s programs and services. Staff and volunteers will be on hand to introduce you to our adorable adoptables and help you to complete the adoption process.
