Tails Of The Trail Event – Clarksville Animal Control Invites Public For A Hike With Shelter Dogs – What's Up Clarksville

Tails Of The Trail Event – Clarksville Animal Control Invites Public For A Hike With Shelter Dogs

The Montgomery County Animal Control in Clarksville TN is inviting the public to Tails of the Trail event.  This event is to provide shelter dogs with exercise and companionship through hiking.  This event is important because socialization and exercise can reduce kennel related stress, anxiety and improve the dogs behavior, which makes them more likely to be adopted.

The hike is scheduled for Saturday may 20, 2017.  It will be held from 7:45 am until 10 am.  The beginning location is 616 N. Spring Street.  Remember to load the app “Woof Trax” aka “Walk For A Dog” on your smartphone and select Montgomery County Animal Control & Adoption Service as your sponsored shelter (they can earn quarterly donations from these events).  Contact Montgomery County Animal Control for additional information.
