Dog Days of SummerWe are currently preparing for "Dog Days of Summer," which is next Sunday at both of our Adoption Centers.
I smile to myself when I think about Dog Days. We invented it about 4 years ago. I was walking through the back kennels and saw dog after dog after dog available for adoption, but unseen by the public (since our adoption kennels were full.) I said to the ED at the time, "wouldn't it be great if we could take ALL the dogs out of the lawn for one day to be seen by clients, outside of kennels, lounging in the sun?" And so we did, with the enormous help of volunteers, and 9 dogs got adopted that day.
We do it every year now, even though the original reason is long gone.
