Hiking Buddies ~ Adopt a dog for hiking! Nevada Humane Society

Before heading out to work I glanced briefly through the Reno Gazette Journal and a side article caught my eye in the Neighborhoods & Voices section.

Diane Blankenburg’s Animal Files ~ Adopt dog for hiking.

Looking for a companion for hiking, biking, snowshoeing, jogging or walking? Want to help the orphaned animals of our community? The Hiking Buddies program is the perfect opportunity.

Take a Nevada Humane Society shelter dog out with you for a day of fun, fresh air and exercise and give them a better chance at finding a new home. It provides a chance for the dog to get out of the shelter thus improving their quality of life…makes them calmer in their cages which increases their chance of being adopted.

Hiking Buddies was started by Britt Johnson, a volunteer ~ she and her husband have been working with the dogs at the Nevada Humane Society for months. The dogs wear Adopt Me vests or colorful bandanas to increase public awareness. Britt interviews applicants and works with the staff to match hikers to the dogs.

Want to join?! Apply to the Hiking Buddies Program by contacting the Nevada Humane Society at 775-856-2000, ext. 308 or Britt Johnson at
