Our pets are walking with us to save lives and bring hope to those affected by suicide!

We are excited to host tons of fun events for you and your dogs, such as dog yoga, friendly competitions, and live dog portrait painting!

Take Part in Relaxing Dog Yoga!

Combining yoga's healing benefits with the comfort and support of dogs, NYC's Paws for Prevention Walk invites attendees to participate in a doggy yoga practice before beginning their walk. Participants will be guided through 10-15 minutes of physical poses, or asanas, as they simultaneously receive unconditional love and acceptance from their furry friends! Please join us with your companion and mat as we come together to bring awareness to the breath, mind and body. Namaste.

We will have a limited number of yoga mats available, so we advise all attendees to bring their own yoga mat and water.

This is a non-competitive Walk and will be roughly the length of a 5k. Walkers and their pets are encouraged to walk at their own pace.

Walkers agree to only bring their pets if they are 100% capable of controlling their pet. Pets must be leashed and under control at all times. Owners must clean up after their pets and dispose of any refuse. All pets attending must be up to date on rabies vaccines and all other NYC vaccination and medical requirements.

AFSP NYC Chapter Staff and volunteers reserve the right to ask any attendees to leave the event if their pet is posing a danger to those at the boardwalk.

 

Thank you for your generous support! We can't wait to walk with you and your pets.
