YLD joining Brother Wolf Foster Dog Hike Saturday, Nov. 9

YLD is going to join Brother Wolf Animal Sanctuary this upcoming Saturday morning for their foster dog hike. We will meet at Brother Wolf headquarters (31 Glendale Ave, Asheville, NC 28803) at 9:45 a.m. on Saturday morning (need to be there by 10 and leaving there around 10:15-30 for the trailhead). We won’t know where we are hiking until we get there that morning.

People cannot bring their own dogs and don’t need to bring leashes, treats or any other pet stuffs. Some people should be prepared to take dogs in their cars to and from the trail (in or out of crates). Please check the weather and dress appropriately with layers. If people can RSVP to FMerithewLaw@gmail.com it would be appreciated so we have an idea of the numbers leading up to this event.

While this is a YLD sponsored event, if other Bar members wish to join we would welcome the support and company.
