The walk promotes responsible dog ownership and brings awareness to ARF. The family event is a fun outing that feels like a country fair, and this year again like last year the event is set against the backdrop of the Annual Hamptons International Film Festival, which takes place on the same weekend.

The two-mile walk to the ocean and back began at the historic Mulford Farm in the heart of East Hampton Village. All registrants for the walk to the sea and back received free nail clippings for their dogs, a free event tee shirt featuring artwork by designer ISAAC MIZRAHI and tote bag along with refreshments including Starbucks Coffee, Dreesen’s Famous Donuts and dog treats from South Fork Pet Company.

The walk was followed by contests that included DOG/COMPANION LOOK ALIKE, THE POOCH WHO CAN SMOOCH and STUPID PET TRICKS. A dog agility course was also set up for everyone to try out. A silent and Lucky #’s auction with many exciting products, services and experiences for owners and pets was offered as well.

Founded in 1974, the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons is the leading animal welfare organization on the East End of Long Island. Each year we take in over 1,500 cats and dogs and provide food, exercise, a warm place to sleep and excellent veterinary care in our state-of-the-art Adoption Center. Since inception ARF has found homes for over 25,000 dogs and cats. ARF is dedicated to finding loving homes for our precious pets not only to improve their lives but also the lives of the families who adopt them. The ARF Adoption Center is located at 91 Daniels Hole Road in Wainscott, next to the East Hampton Airport.
