Join us for the Mighty Mutt Fundraiser

Mighty Mutt Fundraiser
Sunday, August 28th, 12 – 3 PM
Virgil’s Sea Room, 3152 Mission St, San Francisco

Join SFDOG and friends at Virgil's Sea Room (next to El Rio) as we set sail for an afternoon of delicious food, artisan cocktails, and a silent auction—all to raise funds for the legal effort to save dog walking in the GGNRA. The event will take place on Virgil's dog-friendly outdoor patio (yes, dogs are invited!) and will include amazing silent auction items such as dog training with the Pooch Coach, vacation rentals in Tahoe and the Russian River and more. Our goal is to match a $10,000 challenge grant we received from a generous donor and to wrap up our summer fundraising campaign. We’re less than $5,000 away!

Tickets, $25 in advance and $30 at the door, include food and one cocktail. Go to http://www.ticketbase.com/events/mighty-mutt-fundraiser

Sponsored by SFDOG, Marin County DOG, Coastside DOG, Point Isabel Dog Owners, Albany Landfill Dog Owners Group, and others.

SFDOG Comment on the Draft GGNRA Dog Rule

SFDOG submitted a comment on the Draft Rule for a Dog Management Plan in the GGNRA that outlines the reasons why the Draft Rule should be withdrawn. The Draft Rule has so many problems, it cannot be used as the basis for a Final Dog Management Rule. It must be completely revised and reissued, followed by another period of public comment on the revised Draft Rule.

What’s New? May 2016 Update

The National Park Service has proposed a rule that will cut where you can walk with a dog by 90%. Many places where you can walk now will become "no dogs allowed." This rule is worse than previous plans. Here's what you can do.
