In partnership with the Marion County Animal Services, Silver Springs State Park presents an opportunity to make a difference in the life of a shelter dog. You’re invited to join volunteers and park staff as we walk a pack of well-behaved dogs through the park’s gardens and trails. This program gives the animals exercise and the chance to socialize with other dogs and other people. All of the dogs are available for long-term adoption but you can also “adopt” a dog for the morning and take it for a walk with the group. For just a small investment of time, you can make a huge difference in the life of a shelter dog. Hikers and walkers are welcome to join the group, even if they don’t want to hold a leash. Please note: only visitors 16 years and older may walk a shelter dog.
Held the fourth Sunday of the month. The August 27 Pack Walk begins at 10 a.m.
Enter through the Silver Springs State Park main entrance located at 5656 East Silver Springs Boulevard (State Road 40).
