Launch of Play Groups for Shelter Dogs!
August 29, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
We’re celebrating the launch of Play Groups for Shelter Dogs and you’re invited!
Come hang out with Aimee Sadler, founder and director of Dogs Playing for Life, the national trainer who brought this new program to Austin! Aimee will be available to answer questions about play groups and the training.
About Play Groups:
The play groups provide an opportunity for shelter dogs to interact and play in an off-leash, park-type setting and give potential adopters a chance to observe dogs in a more natural environment. The objective of the play groups is to increase adoptions and reduce the time dogs are in the shelter system.
The public will have an opportunity to observe dogs in play groups from 9 to 12pm. Adoption fees are waived for dogs participating in the play groups, named “Play Group Rock Stars.”
Refreshments will be available for sale from 11am to 2pm on Aug. 29, provided by Jim Jim’s Water Ice and Stony’s Pizza.
