Doggy Day Out

Mutual Rescue’s Doggy Day Out is a short-term foster program where the public can take dogs from local shelters on day outings. A Doggy Day Out can include a hike, a trip to a beach or lake, or even a sleepover. These field trips help shelter dogs manage kennel stress, burn off energy, and get more exposure to potential adopters.

Doggy Day Out requires minimal training commitments for participants. This encourages members of the public to engage with their local shelter and advocate for the animals. It’s a great excuse to get out and have fun with a canine sidekick.

  • Adopting a homeless companion animal gives us the opportunity to practice and perfect our ability to be more fully, openly, fearlessly, compassionately human.”
