Join us for the LI-DOG January 2017 Meeting as we map out our agenda for 2017 in our continued quest to make Long Island more dog-friendly!

There is no doubt that winter is upon us and now is the time for us to get our plans in gear so that our dogs can enjoy the outdoors. But, it’s “snow” fun when our pooches are not welcome to join us at so many of Long Island’s parks and beaches.  We’ve made great strides in this department, but we’re not done yet!

At LI-DOG, our mission is to continue to expand dog owner access to public parkland. In addition to helping to create dog parks, LI-DOG also strives for more ON-LEASH access to public trails and parks as well as off-leash access to Long Island’s many miles of public beaches.

Learn about our campaign to get access to beaches in Nassau and Suffolk counties and our goal to get more access to Hempstead, Huntington and other Town parks. We’ll also discuss plans for a possible Valentine’s or St. Patrick’s Day-themed dog event plus our upcoming Events Committee meeting.

AND… we are looking for volunteers to join our new LI-DOG DIGITAL MEDIA TEAM.

Find out about all our campaigns and events plus opportunities to volunteer for LI-DOG by joining us next week at the LI-DOG Jan. 2017 Meeting!
