The Trail Foundation to Host “Tails at the Trail” Pet Safety Initiative

Trail Users Are Encouraged to Dress Dogs in Halloween Costumes for a Photo Opportunity on the Trail

WHAT: The Trail Foundation (TTF) will be hosting its first-ever “Tails at the Trail” pet safety initiative to promote safety for Trail users—and their dogs.

Trail users will have the opportunity to learn about the safest ways to share the Trail with dogs. Dogs are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and enjoy complimentary, pet-friendly ice “scream,” while supplies last. Complimentary professional photos of dogs in costume will also be provided.

Additionally, TTF recently launched its Trail memberships for dogs, “Tails at the Trail.” Trail users are encouraged to sign their “furry” family members up to receive a “The Trail Foundation” dog tag. (Attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for a membership on Oct. 31, and dog tags will be available at the event.)

The Trail has thousands of visitors every day of the year, and with Austin being a dog-friendly city, it’s important for all of us to share the Trail!

The Trail Foundation

The Trail Foundation’s mission is to protect and enhance the Trail at Lady Bird Lake. Since its formation in 2003 as a 501(c)(3), the foundation has fulfilled its mission through careful improvements to the Trail’s infrastructure and environment, while honoring the original vision of the Trail’s founders. In a distinctively collaborative effort, the foundation works in cooperation with the Austin Parks and Recreation Department to close the gap between what the government provides and what the Trail deserves.
