Napa Humane's 10th Annual Walk for Animals is Going Virtual!

Our 10th annual Walk for Animals event benefiting Napa Valley's companion animals is not only our community's largest pet-friendly event, it's also Napa Humane's biggest annual fundraiser.

Funds raised at Walk for Animals help subsidize our lifesaving and prevention-focused programs and services for Napa Valley's pets and their people, keeping pets healthy and in loving homes.

We want to ensure our community of animal lovers can safely enjoy walking to support Napa Valley's companion animals while maintaining safe practices, so we are once again going virtual for this milestone event.

It's Summer & Splash Time for your Dog

It's officially summertime! Lakes and rivers are not so full as last year, but don’t let the drought hamper your fun. Thousands of splash spots in California await people and pups eager to get wet in the great outdoors. Here are some of DogTrekker's favorites:

Big River Beckons at Catch A Canoe

Rollin
Rollin' on the River

There’s something magical about the Big River estuary near Mendocino—and something ingenious about the “canine cruiser” that transports two- and four-legged visitors down the calm and inky river to the sea. Catch A Canoe & Bicycles Too, which has been outfitting paddlers on an 8.3-mile section of the river since 1972, added the cruiser to its fleet of handmade redwood watercraft more than a decade ago. more »

Wild Blue Dog Camp at Lake Tahoe

Here are some tried and true DogTrekker tips on how to enjoy Big Blue with your four-legged sidekick. more »

Whether your dog has been recently diagnosed or you are interested in preventing the disease,  one of my favorite recommendations is to give home cooking a try.  At the end of this article, I’ve provided readers with an easy to make,  fully balanced, diabetic friendly recipe. more »
