Animal Control Resources
The Adopt-A-Shelter Program
The Adopt-a-Shelter program provides local Animal Control Officers with evaluation, training and enrichment guidance and assistance for the dogs in their care. Our Companions Canine College Volunteers visit the dogs in the shelter and focus on training basic life skills, and providing the dogs with mental and physical enrichment. Their visits greatly help the dogs cope with their stay at the kennel and increase their adoptability while they wait for their new home.
