 What is Save A Dog & Kids Program about?

PAWSITIVE PRAISE FOR PEACE!

  Were you aware that donations for Charity and Youth Programs in 2002/2003 are so low that not only food, clothes and necessities are needed, but all After School Programs for Homeless and Under-priviledged kids have been cut.  Federal research on Anti-gang, Anti-drugs, Anti-violence and Anti-juvenile delinquency states that the most successful deterants are After School Programs with positive activities for kids.  Kids commit most of the crimes during the hours after school.  Help us bring positive activities to the underpriviledged kids Youth Programs,YMCA After School Programs,  Youth Detention Centers and other youth facilities all over the US.

 

 

A HUMANE EDUCATION TODAY, YIELDS A MORE COMPASSIONATE SOCIETY TOMORROW

  In our program kids learn compassion, responsibility and service through helping train and care for homeless puppies.  They learn the benefits of positive praise and the rewarding satisfaction of training a helpless puppy.  They gain confidence, self esteem and many more values that will help them in their lives.  What a perfect match: Kids and Dogs!

Donations, volunteers and sponsors are desperately needed.

Kids visited Homeless Kids at the SLC YMCA November 30th with their trained pups as a Sub For Santa Christmas Project.  We went  back with the puppies and warm clothes and food Thursday December 27th!  Shoes, gloves, coats, socks and hats are still needed. 20 new kids arrive every month !  Thanks Tracy of Gateway Center for watching our video and asking Boyer Company to bring this program to homeless children. Thanks Richard of Salty Dogs for considering holding puppy training classes for these kids.

 

Our kids have been invited to perform for the Granite District Detention Kids.  Utah Foster Care Program For Kids has also invited us to come visit their kids, and Youth Corrections and YMCA Homeless kids after-school programs  in SLC also wants us to bring dog training to their kids.  The only way to be able to do all this is if we either get a grant or have a Fundraiser Benefit to raise money for the kids.  Anyone out there have any suggestions, please let us know.  

Thanks to our proud sponsor Michel, you are the best friend to everyone and everydog in Park City!

Millcreek Canyon: A great place to hike with your dog

*****************************************************************

Millcreek Canyon is accessed from I-215 at 3600 South. A small fee is assessed upon leaving the canyon. The gates accessing the upper parking lot at the top for vehicles usually opens the first, or first part of July. From the fee station to the upper parking area is approximately 8.5 miles and 2600 vertical feet.

This is a popular place to hike with dogs, since the neighboring canyons are watersheds, and off-limits to dogs. Dogs in Mill Creek Canyon's undeveloped areas are to be “physically restrained by their owners”, (On Leash), “on even-numbered days -- but allowed to roam free, (Off Leash), on odd-numbered days year-round.”

The canyon attracts a lot of different users throughout the year. (Hikers, with and without dogs, Bicyclists, skiers, etc.) So please be respectful of them all and use common courtesy. There has been a great deal of controversy regarding dogs in this canyon. It is one of the last places we can go with our dogs off-leash. Let’s not lose this privilege.

Dog Lake is one of the most popular hikes to do with your dog in Millcreek Canyon. It starts from the southwest corner of the upper parking lot via the Big Water Trail and heads West. You will climb some switchbacks through tall trees and then cross a small bridge built by the Boy Scouts. From here continue up the trail and follow the signs to Dog Lake. You will have spectacular scenery along the way.

This is not a difficult or technical hike. However, your dog will be so happy once you reach Dog Lake you will need to spend some time there. So it might be nice to pack a picnic to take with you. (Just remember to pack out all your and your dogs’ trash.)
