SIDOGS, the Seabrook Island dog and beach advocacy group, (aka Seabrook Island Dog Owners Group) announces that the Annual Beach Walk and Yappy Hour will take place on Friday, September 29, 2023, starting at 5:00 pm on North Beach. The rain date for the event will be Monday, October 2, 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 the 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 SIDOGS 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 SIDOGS Beach Walk and Yappy Hour. Access to North Beach is through Boardwalks 1 or 2. Water, seltzer, and chips/pretzels will be provided by SIDOGS. Water for the dogs will also be provided. If you wish to bring something else to drink for yourself feel free, but please remember that glass bottles are not allowed on the beach. Your dog will have fun, and so will you!
This year, SIDOGS has designated Pet Helpers 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 Pet Helpers by bringing a donation to the event. Checks can be made out directly to Pet Helpers. More information on Pet Helpers can be found on their website.
