The PetWalk is an approximate 3-mile wooded walk along the trails of the “Aggie” campus. A shorter paved route is also available for those who choose not to walk the wooded path or, collect donations and let the PCS Walk Team walk for you.

Fall in New England is a favorite time of year for many folks. The cooler weather along with the colorful foliage make walking with your canine companion a real treat.
But, beware... The "creepy crawlies", in particular ticks, are still out there just lying in wait for you. Although the temperature has dropped, the ticks are still around, and will be until the first frost. What's worse is that the ticks that are out in the autumn are usually adult deer ticks and much more likely to be infected with Lyme disease than the younger ticks that are out in May and June.
Pet parents should be aware that the threat of ticks and Lyme disease is still present in the Fall. If you use Frontline flea and tick prevention or a similar product, continue to use it. If you use other methods to control these pests, continue to use those methods. If you have never used flea and tick prevention products on your pet and would like to, or if you need more information, consult your pet's veterinarian for recommendations.
Looking for a more natural solution? Zoomin Groomin offers Defender Flea & Tick Natural Repellent Towelettes for dogs and cats. Just ask your Zoomin Groomer about them.
Take precautions through the Fall, but don't let these little pests deter you and your furry buddy from enjoying a great walk along your favorite trail!
