The SEADOGS beach walk will be a virtual event!
SEADOGS, the Seabrook Island Dog Owners Group, announces that the annual Beach Walk will be held as a virtual Beach Walk this year. Instead of the traditional beach walk, we are asking dog owners to submit videos and/or still photos of their dogs in action settings, such as running on the beach or anywhere. All Seabrook Islanders, even if you are not a member of SEADOGS, can submit videos and/or photos. Those of you who are still off island during this period can also submit videos and/or photos of your dog(s) in action settings and no beach is required. Of course, observe the distancing rules during this COVID period.
The videos and/or photos need to be submitted by April 28, 2020 to John Reock at firstname.lastname@example.org. On May 4, 2020 the Beach Walk event will culminate with a display of your submitted videos and pictures on the website: SIDOGS.ORG
The Beach Walk is a tradition that has helped the Seabrook Island community combine fun for dogs and their humans. The event has three purposes: 1) Let the multitude of dogs run on the beach; 2) Allow the dogs’ humans to socialize on the beach; and 3) Provide contributions to a designated local animal charity. This year, we can’t do #2. But we can do part of #1 and all of #3. You can take videos and/or pictures for the community to admire and you can still contribute to a worthy animal cause in this time of great need.
This year, SEADOGS has designated Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary (http://halliehill.com/) to be the 501 (c)(3) charity for giving. Hallie Hill, located in Hollywood, SC, provides sanctuary to special needs dogs that might have trouble finding a home. We ask that you send your contributions directly to Hallie Hill Animal Sanctuary, 5604 New Rd, Hollywood, SC 29449. As stated in the original Beach Walk notice, Mitch Pulwer will be sending $1000 to Hallie Hill in the hope that we have at least that amount contributed directly by Seabrook Islanders. If Hallie Hill is not your first choice for a contribution, SEADOGS urges you to donate to another animal sanctuary. This is a period of great stress for animal sanctuaries throughout the country.
