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.
