About the Program

CATEGORY: Volunteers (Best in Category)
YEAR: 2022
Salt Lake County Animal Services (SLCoAS) has created a new volunteer program, Hounds Around Town. The program allows our volunteers and fosters to take shelter dogs out on field trips. Field trips can include activities like hiking, walks, car rides, getting puppaccinos (whip cream in a mini cup), grooming, shopping, or going out to lunch. The purpose of this program is to give shelter dogs a short break from the kennels, getting photos and learning more about each dog’s behavior, and getting the community involved in working with our dogs while staying active.
