Of course, what would summer be without a trip to some local attractions. Some of our fantastic and caring volunteers have taken been taking our dogs out to the local state parks for a little outdoor adventure time. Gidget has become quite the intrepid hiker, taking trips to several state forests for some communing with Mother Nature. Not only is it great for the dogs to get the extra exercise, it’s a valuable chance for many of the dogs to work on their social skills out in an unusual environment. Skills they can take with them to their future forever home.
And with our lovely sanctuary property, dogs have all the joys of summer right outside their backdoor. Our nature trail, play yard, and open fields have been providing hours of summer fun to our dogs and to our volunteers. There’s nothing Henry loves more than to take a volunteer for a walk, following his nose wherever it leads him and exploring the beautiful landscape we have right here.
