Take A Hike To Help Canines & Veterans
On Saturday September 27th, humans and hounds alike will hit the trails of Mt. Uniacke Estate Museum Park in support of canine rescue and veterans battling PTSD.
Presented by Muddy Paws Adventures, Trails N’ Tails is a 45 or 90 minute nature hike (participant’s choice) through some of Hants County’s most picturesque trails. Participants will have the option to make a donation or collect pledges with all proceeds going directly to Paws Fur Thought and Atlantic Small Dog Rescue.
Along with raising funds, the event is designed to expose the mental health benefits of spending time in nature and the therapeutic benefits of dogs. “Two years ago, I left my career in the city to launch Muddy Paws Adventures. It wasn’t long before I realized what a positive impact hiking with a pack of happy, energetic dogs had on my well-being both physically and mentally,” says Linda Townsend. “My goal is to share the experience with others while helping two very deserving canine-related causes.”
