Borrowing a shelter dog gives a pup a chance to get a break from the shelter! And this pre-Howl-O-Ween weekend, you can welcome a shelter dog into your home and give them a spooktacular night full of movies, fall-themed pup cups, halloween painting and more. Click here to download our Stay at Home Halloween Activities Sheet. You can also take them on a fun outing on a hike, to a patio or just spend some time snuggling on your couch. Plus, when you Borrow-a-Buddy, you give us the opportunity to learn more information about the pet that can be communicated to their future home.
Pickup for fosters who have been matched with a buddy will be available on Saturday, October 28 from 9:30-10:30AM!
The Foster team will be waiting to greet you as you arrive for pickup. When you pick up your furry friend, you will receive everything you need to have a howling good time!
Dropoff options are Saturday, October 28 from 3-5PM or Sunday, October 29th from 12-5PM.
