Tails Around Toledo Gives Pups Outings
The Toledo Humane Society announces that its Tails Around Toledo program, which pairs members of the community with shelter dogs for field trips, is officially launching to the public.
Outings can last from a couple hours to all day, and can include a hike, a trip to a park, a trip to a pet-friendly store or drive-thru, or even a relaxing nap on your couch at home. Whether your schedule, housing, or allergies do not allow you to own a pet of your own or you are just an avid dog lover, it’s a great way to get your dog fix in.
The Tails Around Toledo program was created in order to help reduce kennel stress and provide dogs with enrichment and increased visibility to adopters in the community. Outings give the shelter valuable insight on what the dog’s personality is like outside a shelter environment, and can lead to better adoption matches. It’s also a great excuse to spend a day doing something new or exploring Toledo.
The program is designed to make it easy for the community to become involved – signing up is easy, and participants will be provided with all the necessary supplies for a successful field trip. Individuals interested in the Tails Around Toledo program should visit the Toledo Humane Society’s website at www.toledohumane.org/events-and-programs/tailsaroundtoledo for more information about the program and to sign up online.
The shelter offers field trip options to accommodate most schedules, and field trip opportunities will be offered Sunday through Friday every week.
Woof Walks Offered At Levis Commons
The Town Center at Levis Commons will host a Woof Walk every Sunday from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
This weekly, self-guided socialization for pets and owners will continue through the end of the year. Dogs on leashes and owners can stroll the boulevard at their leisure during Woof Walks and meet new furry friends along the way. Free dog treats are available with human purchase at Taste of Heaven Chocolates. There will also be an occasional giveaway and free samples from Three Dog Bakery of Perrysburg. Participants are encouraged to snap pics and tag the Levis Commons social media accounts on their visit to win gift cards from Levis Commons merchants.
Those interested in participating are asked to follow some safety rules:
• Dogs must be leashed.
• Owners must wear masks if not 6 feet from friends.
• BYOPB (Bring Your Own Poo Bags).
• Woof Walk is rain or shine.
• No preregistration is needed.
