Wag! Earth Day Weekend Community Cleanup
April 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Wag!, the on-demand pet walking and boarding app, is mobilizing the local community of dog walkers, pet parents, and dog lovers for a pet-friendly cleanup in Chicago’s Grant Park. Pets are an important part of our families, and Wag! believes everyone should have safe, clean destinations to enjoy outdoor adventures with dogs. Earth Day Weekend is the perfect opportunity to rally local walkers and pet parents on the Wag! platform, along with other pet and park lovers, to join a neighborhood cleanup in one of Chicago’s most dog-friendly spaces. Volunteers will help remove trash from the park, giving back to a dog-friendly location pet parents love so dearly.
Those interested in participating can meet at the intersection of South Columbus Drive and 11th Street to receive tools, gloves, and biodegradable trash bags. In addition, Wag! will provide complimentary t-shirts for humans, as well as dog treats and bandanas, on a first come, first served basis, as a thank you for helping out. Please note, those interested in volunteering must wear appropriate clothing and closed-toe shoes, and all dogs must be leashed unless they are inside the gated dog park.
