While HHS strives to make our shelter as comfortable as possible before they move on to their forever home, long-term stays in the kennels can be detrimental to our animals. In particular, we work to make sure our dogs – in both our Large Dog and Small Dog kennels – get exercise, one on one time with a person, and a walk each and every day, at least once a day. As an HHS dog walker, you will work to take out dogs, as trained, for walks and exercise in the play pens behind the Large Dog kennels. Dogs will be taken out 1 at a time, and all volunteers must be trained prior to beginning to walk our dogs.
