NEW YEAR, NEW RESOLVE:
Make Long Island More Dog-Friendly!
LI-DOG January 2019 Meeting
Thurs., Jan. 24th, 7-9PM
Plainview-Old Bethpage Public Library
999 Old Country Rd., Plainview, NY
Join us for our January meeting as we map out our agenda for the New Year in our continued quest to make Long Island more dog-friendly. As we endure the “bone” chilling temps outside, it’s actually time for us to get our plans in gear so that we and our dogs can enjoy the outdoors in Spring and beyond. 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 tremendous progress in recent years, but there’s more to do!
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.
Tops on our 2019 list:
- More on-leash access to Nassau County parks and Town of Oyster Bay and Hempstead parks
- New dog parks in the Towns of Oyster Bay and Hempstead
- Access to a beach in the Town of Hempstead
- Increased access to Suffolk County beaches and continued open access to Mud Creek Beach
We’ll also discuss our upcoming events that we need volunteers for including:
- Dog Days at Old Westbury Gardens
- LI-DOG’s Pints N Paws Luau
- A Beach Meetup, and
- LI-DOG’s Pack Walks
We’re always looking for volunteers to help make our initiatives happen. We need YOU, the dog loving (and VOTING public), to lend your voice and time.
Find out more and get details on how to join us at the LI-DOG Jan. 2019 Meeting!
(Please be aware that the library only allows service dogs.)
