Video: Program Introduces City Dwellers to the Outdoors and Adoptable Dogs


Written by: Phil Monahan


We’ve all heard the expression “a win-win situation,” but the Hike with Adoptable Hounds program from New York’s Discover Outdoors is more like a win-win-win-win situation. The adventure company has teamed up with Animal Haven, a shelter in SoHo, to host outdoor trips that include adoptable dogs. The company wins by providing a unique experience for New Yorkers stuck in the city without a dog; the dogs win because they get to experience life outside the shelter and the city; the participants win because they get to enjoy the company of these gorgeous dogs in a beautiful setting; and the shelter wins because they get to see how the dogs interact with people and each other outside the shelter. The ultimate victory, of course, occurs when one of the participants adopts one of the dogs. What a brilliant idea!
