Sponsoring Shelters along the PCT Route

Several animal shelters located close to the Pacific Crest Trail have graciously agreed to help Banner and me with resupplies of food and equipment during our 6 month hike.  In return for this critical logistical support, we will be sending these Sponsoring Shelters significant donations at the completion of our hike.  How much we are able to send will depend on how many people choose to donate to the PCT for Pets Sponsoring Shelters option (see Make a Donation).  We also hope that our Sponsoring Shelters will be able to use our story and our adventure, as well as our attendance at fund-raising events that they may want to plan, in order to raise even more awareness and donations to help them in their daily mission to care for the animals in their charge.

Adirondack Humane SocietyThis is the animal shelter in Plattsburgh, NY, where I adopted Banner.  Being located in New York, they obviously cannot help us with resupplies on the PCT, but I would like to be able to send them a sizeable surprise donation at the completion of our hike.

CHEKIA DOG RESCUE  --  Ridgecrest, CA
Chekia Dog Rescue will be assisting us with a resupply at
Walker Pass (Highway 178) at the end of Segment 10.  This is a
critical resupply because here we will be making the transition to
skis for the SIerra Nevada section of the PCT, and we will be meeting
my friend, Matt Blakeley-Smith, who will travel with us through the
Sierra from Walker Pass to Ebbetts Pass...one month and over
350 miles of skiing!

ICAREInyo County Animal Resources & Education (ICARE)
Bishop, CA

ICARE will be helping us with a critical resupply in Bishop at the end of
our longest segment of the PCT: 10 days and over 120 miles of skiing from Kennedy Meadows to South Lake (Segment 12).

This page will continue to add more Sponsoring Shelters with
contact information and links to those shelters that have web sites.
