Our new program, Doggy Day Trips, launched May 4, 2019, will allow approved short term fosters to “check out” a dog from the shelter for an hour, an afternoon, an overnight or even a weekend.

Our dogs would love to go on a hike, spend the night on your couch, walk around town or go to the beach. Just a short time out of the shelter gives our dogs a nice break, helps them to socialize, introduces them to new activities, places and people and helps us determine their personalities. Participants will be required to attend the Doggy Day Trips orientation, fill out our Doggy Day Trips application, sign a waiver at the time of check-out, and fill out an activities summary upon return.

We will provide the following tools in a HSWA branded bag for each trip: leash, harness, collar, proof of rabies vaccination, waste bags, water bowl, bottle(s) of water, dog food, food bowl, treats, crate (if needed), towels (if needed), and business cards to hand out to potential adopters. We’ve got it all covered…you just provide the fun!

We’re looking forward to seeing photos & videos and reading stories of the trips our doggies will go on. Keep an eye on Facebook and Instagram #HSWAdoggydaytrips
