Walk a Hound Walks On!

Greetings to all our loyal fans as well as our new visitors!  Walk a Hound, Lose a Pound has gone through several changes since we last saw you at Ellenberger Park in 2007.  We have now incorporated and officially gained our status as a 501C3 (not for profit).  As many of you may know, there have been many changes taking place locally in the animal welfare arena over the last year and we chose to take a break while some of these issues initally were addressed. 

As we prepare for this upcoming season, we are excited that we will be working with several other local shelters and foster groups in addition to Indianapolis Animal care and Control.  We will also be sponsoring other dog walking programs in addition to our Walk in the Park Events. These include on-site walking programs at a couple of our local shelters as well as walking shelter dogs on the Monon Trail and Indianapolis Greenway and Canal.  

As always, as we begin our new ventures we are looking for some dedicated volunteers to help us get up and running.  For more information on how you can help, click here

Please stay tuned for our event schedule.  We look forward to seeing you this summer!

See you at Mutt Strut 2009!

We will have a greeting booth at this year’s Mutt Strut. Please visit us!
