County shelter relaunches Doggy Day Out program

Santa Rosa County Animal Services relaunched the Doggy Day Out program July 1 to pair members of the community with shelter dogs for daytime field trips.

Outings can last from one hour to all day and can include a hike, puppuccino from a local coffee shop or even lunch at a pet-friendly restaurant.

The Doggy Day Out Program was created to help reduce kennel stress and provide dogs with enrichment and increased visibility. Since the program began last year, 78 dogs have participated in the program and all have been adopted.

Both boys have bonded and would love to be adopted together but could be adopted separately. Chong has been waiting to find the perfect home for months. They are both fixed and up to date on all vaccinations.
