On Sunday, October 12, 2014, Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons, Inc. (ARF) is holding their 21st Annual "Stroll to the Sea" Dog Walk from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The two-mile walk to the ocean is intended to promote responsible dog ownership and awareness of ARF. The stroll begins and ends in the heart of East Hampton Village at the historic Mulford Farm.

Following the walk, attendees can enter a variety of contests like Dog/Owner Look Alike, The Pooch Who Can Smooch, and Stupid Pet Tricks. First place winners will walk away with a crystal dog by Baccarat. The dog contests and awards ceremony begin at 11 a.m. and will feature a special "Friends of Animals award presentation to the Sag Harbor Village Fire Department's Dive Team, who assisted rescuing a dog trapped in frigid icy water last winter at Long Beach. Four legged friends can test out their skills on the dog agility course. Once again, singer/songwriter Sandy Rapp will entertain guests playing favorites on the guitar. Attendees can support ARF by bidding on the silent and Chinese auction.
