Registration for West Columbia Gorge Humane Society’s Seventh Annual Hike on the Dike is now open!  Hike on the Dike is a popular event so we encourage everyone to preregister so they can skip the registration line!  Plus the first 50 registrants can receive a FREE dog microchip on-site!

The West Columbia Gorge Humane Society’s Seventh Annual Hike on the Dike is on Saturday, May 30th, from 10AM to 2PM and begins at Pendleton Woolen Mills at 2 Pendleton Way, Washougal, WA.  Start Times:  Registration – 10am, 10K – 10:30, 5K – 11:15, Walk – 11:30

The beautiful, scenic 2.77 mile route overlooking the Columbia River begins at Pendleton Woolen Mills heading east along the dike to the entrance of Captain William Clark Park and then returning back to Pendleton. Our shelter is located along the route so we invite walkers to stop in to our shelter on the way up or back!
