LI-DOG July Meeting: Gearing Up for the Dog Days Ahead!

Thurs., July 21st, 7 to 9 PM

Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library

999 Old Country Rd., Plainview, NY (Google Map)

Summer means being outside to enjoy fun activities with your pup and LI-DOG is gearing up for the dog days ahead! Join us for the LI-DOG JULY MEETING: Gearing Up for the Dog Days Ahead to find out more about our plans to make Long Island more dog friendly and how YOU can help in that quest!

We LOVE Summer – warm days, more daylight, sultry evening walks, splashing in the pool and running on the beach. The only thing wrong with all of this is that most of the time, our fur kids are not welcome.  Why not and what can you do about it?  Find out how you can help to change Long Island’s long-outdated laws and restrictions that ban dogs and also hear about our recent successes like on-leash access to Nassau County parks! We’re making progress but we still need YOUR help to work on new initiatives and to volunteer at our events–all with the mission of making Long Island a more dog friendly place.

At LI-DOG, our mission is to continue to expand dog owner access to public parkland and beaches.  In addition to helping to create dog parks, LI-DOG also strives for more ON-LEASH access to public parks as well as off-leash access to Long Island’s many miles of public beaches. We also plan dog-friendly events such as our “Bark in the Park Night” with the Long Island Ducks in September and, of course, our hugely popular Pack Walks.

Please join us on July 21st and find out what interests you and how you can help to make it happen!
