Outdoor Adventures is proud to host the first annual Charity Doggie Rafting Event on Saturday June 4th, 2011! That’s right, you can take your best canine companion down the Lower Section of the Pigeon River! The Lower Section is the calm section of the river with small Class I and II rapids. Humans and their dogs will be accompanied by a professional guide through a one hour ride down this section. There will be lots of spots to float and relax, and, for your more adventurous dogs, places to get out and swim.
The cost for the event is $25.00 for adults and $20.00 for kids and canines. There is a maximum of two dogs and three humans per raft.
In addition to rafting, we will be having a raffle with gift certificates from local businesses, doggie adoptions, doggie photos, and more! Oh, and don’t forget the party after the event hosted by Hartford’s own Bean Trees Cafe!
All of the proceeds from this event will benefit the Newport Animal Shelter. So, you can have fun in the outdoors with your doggie AND be doing something good for the community! Make your reservation today for this event! If you cannot make it to the event, but would still like to donate, simply visit our Charity Doggie Rafting Webpage and click the donate button.
See you on the river soon!
