The Nature Trail

A Walk in the Woods for Shelter Dogs

    A dream come true is the way we describe the Nature Trail at the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter. With vision, dedication and lots of hard work, an overgrown, trash strewn, unused piece of Town property adjoining the shelter has been transformed into a scenic, winding network of landscaped trails for our shelter dogs to wander.

    Donations of money, materials, equipment, and even the services of a landscape architect combined with the hard work of volunteers and staff to create this safely enclosed walk in the woods where shelter dogs can enjoy feeling the earth beneath their paws.  Stops along the way include Cootor Cove, Henry Hollow and Sundown Ridge.  Shelter dogs can smell all the scents that nature has to offer during their stress busting strolls.
