Doggy Day Out remains on Pause

(last updated 7/11/2023)


Become a Doggy Day Out (DDO) volunteer! Take shelter dogs out for a few hours a day so they can take a break from the shelter and experience some new things!

Volunteers give our active, large breed dogs (that tend to pull on the leash and don’t quite yet understand good manners but are otherwise great dogs) a chance to experience hikes, beach days, some chill time in a home or brunch at a dog-friendly restaurant!

By taking out a DDO dog, you can help them get adopted too! You’ll meet people who might be interested in adopting. Sharing photos and videos of your DDO dog with us helps us spread the word about them on social media.

“I cannot imagine a time now where this wasn’t part of my life. What a difference this has made to me.”
