WASHINGTON, May 25, 2013 - On June 13, 2013, the season opens at Glen Highland Farm in Morris, New York. Through the end of September, this human-canine paradise welcomes both two legged and four legged guests to romp and play while helping homeless dogs until they find their forever home. The Canine Country Getaway at Glen Highland Farm redefines ‘pet friendly’ – setting a new standard for a holiday with your furry family member.
“We are the only camp that exists for two reasons,” explains Glen Highland Farms co-founder Lillie Goodrich. “The first, to give dog lovers an off-leash experience in a spectacular location. The second, to raise funds for abandoned Border Collies.”
The Getaway is a 5-star escape in a spectacular rural setting in upstate New York. Explore 175-acres – wander the meadows, go on trail walks, swim in Buttercreek Creek, play agility and fetch to your heart’s content, even go catch and release fish in bullfrog pond – all without leaving the property. Lodging options include spacious deluxe RVs, wonderful comfy cabins and cottages and luxury tents. Both you and your dog will awake surrounded by the smells, sights and sounds of nature, relaxed, renewed and recharged.
Your lodging rental fees cover your accommodations and include full use of the dining pavilion, pantry, bathroom & shower facilities, rest areas, agility field equipment, the Farm’s trails, the winding creek, the pond and endless acres of fields and meadows — the perfect backdrop for hiking, swimming and wading, playing fetch, bird watching, relaxing, napping, and more.
The camp is about much more than commuting with nature while bonding with your pup. It’s a place to discover your dog’s talents from canine freestyle and herding to tracking and water sports. All the activities are an extension of the camp’s mission to help homeless Bordie Collies through Sweet Bordie Collie Rescue. Year-round, the camp cares for up to 40 Border Collies, a breed renowned for its intelligence, high energy and need for exercise. Your vacation dollars make this mission and adopt. Since Glen Highland Farms opened in 2001, more than 1,700 Border Collies have been placed in forever homes.
Adopting a dog from Sweet Border Collie Rescue costs $325. All adoptable dogs are completely vetted and guaranteed healthy. For the Getaway vacations, prices start at $275 a night to stay in one of Glen Highland Farm’s RVs and $200 if you bring your own RV.
Glen Highland Farm is located at 217 Pegg Road, Morris, NewYork 13808. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, call (607) 263-5415 or visit their facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/vacationwithdog.
