SEADOGS, the Seabrook Island dog and beach advocacy group, (aka SIDOGS) announced today that the Annual Beach Walk and Yappy Hour will take place on Friday, September 16, 2022, starting at 5:00 pm on North Beach. The rain date for the event will be Saturday, September 17 at the same time and place. The Beach Walk is a tradition that has helped the Seabrook Island community combine fun for dogs (and their humans) with charitable giving to worthy area animal causes.
For the dogs, the Beach Walk is a great time to run and play on the beach with other friendly dogs in the community. For humans, there is the satisfaction of being able to take advantage of this wonderful feature of Seabrook Island. Past President Mitch Pulwer has stated: “The SEADOGS Beach Walk is a community celebration of the joy dogs and their owners have while playing on the Seabrook Island beach. It is an added bonus that the event raises funds for other animals in the area that aren’t as fortunate.”
All residents of Seabrook Island are invited to join the SEADOGS Beach Walk and Yappy Hour. Access to North Beach is through Boardwalks 1 or 2. Beer, wine, and chips/pretzels will be provided by SEADOGS. Water for both humans and dogs will also be provided. If you wish to bring something else to drink for yourself, please remember that glass bottles are not allowed on the beach. Your dog will have fun, and so will you!
This year, SEADOGS has designated Lowcountry Lab Rescue to be the charity for giving. Volunteers from their organization will be in attendance to provide more information and answer questions.
Although not a requirement for attendance, please consider being generous to area dogs at Lowcountry Lab Rescue by bringing a donation to the event. Checks can be made out directly to Lowcountry Lab Rescue. More information on Lowcountry Lab Rescue can be found at lowcountrylabrescue.org.
According to the website, Lowcountry Lab Rescue (LLR) is a 501(c)(3) animal welfare organization in South Carolina that rescues and rehomes stray and unwanted Labrador Retrievers from life-threatening situations. LLR promotes responsible Labrador ownership through breed education and spay and neuter advocacy to prevent abandonment and homelessness of Labrador Retrievers and is funded by donations.
Lowcountry Lab Rescue is run completely by volunteers with full-time jobs doing something else, such as teacher, lawyer, “mom”, sales rep, engineer, nurse, or a business owner. They rely on donations to fund operations and save Labrador Retrievers.
