We would like to start off by wishing everyone a very happy Summer! The Mammoth Lakes Lions Club is excited for the second annual Eastern Sierra Tails and Trails Dog Fest, a family fun dog walk event. Eastern Sierra Tails & Trails Dog Fest will be held on Saturday, September 16, 2018, 9- 1 p.m. at MAMMOTH REC ZONE, 416 Sierra Park Road, Mammoth Lakes, CA 93546, and will feature a Pet Walk as well as live music, food, games, and fun for the whole family!
This pawsitively awesome event is a fundraising effort presented by the Mammoth Lakes Lions for sight and hearing related care. Fundraising efforts will help provide eye and hearing tests as well as sight and hearing equipment from young students to our community elders. In addition, the event will help to support systems like Guide Dogs for the Blind.
The Eastern Sierra Tails & Trails is also a great opportunity to spread a reminder to all about pet etiquette. Through a fun-filled day of quality pet time, we will remind everyone of the importance of cleaning up after our furry friends and keeping dogs on leashes on our designated community trails. To underline the importance of cleaning up the Lions Club will donate a portion of the proceeds back to the Town of Mammoth Lakes in support of dog waste stations/ dog bag dispensers and waste receptacles. Last year we donated two dog waste receptacle sites, soon to be placed adjacent to the Mammoth Lakes Library and in Shady Rest.
- Pet ownership and support of pet-related events is growing every year. Pets are part of many American families. Sixty-eight percent of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own a pet according to the 2016-2017 Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA). With pet ownership growing in order to preserve our parks and trails there is even greater awareness of pet ownership and pick up needed.
- Association with pet-related philanthropic organizations raises affinity for your brand or business.
- You would be helping the Mammoth Lions in their efforts to beautify the area for all to enjoy including pets and their humans as well as those that visit the area.
- Help create a better place for those in need and for our four-legged friends and their owners in Mammoth!
