In order to improve the quality of life in the dogs that temporarily live at our shelter, we started a program called Canine Happy Hour. Canine Happy Hour was started in February of 2011. Since we noticed such a dramatic change in our dogs, we continue to add to the program.
Canine Happy Hour is weekdays from 3:00-4:00 p.m. Our kennel closes down to the public for that hour. This allows our staff to spend one-on-one, quality time with the dogs. The staff spends this hour working on training, taking the dogs for walks, letting them swim in the doggy pools, brushing and bathing and offering some much needed, extra TLC. Since living in a kennel can be stressful for our dogs, we love giving them the chance to relax and explore!
We are always looking for volunteers to help out during Canine Happy Hour. It’s a great opportunity to help the dogs and have fun while doing it! If this is something you’re interested in, please visit our Volunteer page!
