For a $25 donation, guests at the Ritz-Carlton can take a shelter dog for a walk around the Blue Tip Golf Course or the nearby North Sound Club. Local residents and island visitors are welcome to volunteer as well. Next time we go, we'll have to make room for doggie treats in our carry on!
The program was designed by Marcus Caudill, the Housekeeping Manager, who has an adopted dog named Charlie. "We knew our guests would enjoy taking the dogs out, but had no idea how successful the program would be," said Caudill. "On busy days we've even had waiting lists for the walking slots. One guests enjoyed her outing so much , she handed me a check for $1,000 for the Humane Society afterwards."
