Registrants for our Pack Walk will have the opportunity to donate $5 or $10 to LI-DOG for a chance to win a raffle basket generously donated by Earth Bath and Glo-marr Pet Products. Proceeds from the raffle support LI-DOG’s work to open local parks and beaches to our four-legged family members.

Please make sure to bring poop bags–as clean-up is a must!–and bring your camera as there are many beautiful photo opportunities on the grounds.

Once again, Old Westbury Gardens is inviting doggie vendors, rescue groups, and animal advocacy organizations to set up booths that weekend. LI-DOG will set up on Sunday, the 24th. Also, on Sunday there’ll be a big costume contest and parade starting at 3 p.m. (You must register by 2:30pm to join the parade).

While visiting the gardens, dogs must be on-leash at all times, please no RETRACTABLE leashes, and they are not allowed in any buildings on the grounds. Please also keep them from walking on the flowers.
