Dogs On The Run is a lifesaving program that helps connect the community to our adoptable dogs. As part of the program, trained volunteers may take our adoptable dogs out on the town and to public venues. These excursions allow us to connect with the citizens we serve and increase awareness about shelter dogs, while also providing our dogs with necessary enrichment and reprieve from the shelter environment.
Dogs On the Run volunteers must be CMPD Animal Care & Control volunteers and in reasonably good physical condition. Volunteers must already be approved to handle dogs onsite. They must also attend a Dogs On The Run orientation session, which covers offsite safety considerations and equipment requirements.
By joining the Dogs on the Run program, you will help improve the quality of life of our shelter dogs!
