Make a Gift

Dogs are social animals, and we find that extensive amounts of time in the kennel can have a harsh toll on their minds. So we thought, how can we make their stay better? Born from that thought was our Dog’s Day Out program – a super fun way for the dog lovers in our community to help us while also benefiting!

This allows members of the public to sign out one of our adoptable dogs for an afternoon of fun – whether that means going to your house just to hang out or going for a hike, it is completely up to you! This not only gives people their “dog fill” so to speak, but also gives our dogs extra exercise, attention, and adoption exposure.

This program also allows potential adopters to see what a day with the dog they are interested in is like – helping us make better, more thorough matches!

This program is really successful, which can make it a little tricky to be a part of as we only allow two dogs offsite at a given time. But if you come right when we open, you likely will have no issue getting a dog for the day!

To get involved, just stop by BHS any time we are open – there is some paperwork to complete, and we will want a copy of your photo ID. If you want to take a dog that day, we will give you all the supplies you may need and a cute “ADOPT ME” vest for our dog to wear while you are out on the town! And when you return, we will have you complete a doggy report card to help adopters learn more about them!

Participants of this program must be 18 or accompanied by an adult.
