Shelter Dog Program™

 

One Love believes that shelter enrichment programs are a necessity. Many dogs have trouble adjusting to shelter life and need a little extra help getting adopted. The Shelter Dog Program was established in 2015 to assist local shelters with pit bull type dogs who are at risk and/or long time residents.

 

 

 

About the Program

IN SHELTER TRAINING

Building confidence and learning life skills will help ensure a successful adoption. That's why our Volunteers pick up sponsored dogs from the shelter and bring them to our Mutt Manners Training Classes, where they bond with their handler and learn skills like basic obedience and leash manners.

SHELTER VISITS

The majority of our volunteers are also registered volunteers at our local municipal shelters.  This allows them to make regular trips to the shelter to spend time with our sponsored dogs.  Volunteers will bathe, walk, and play with the dogs several times per week.

ENRICHMENT ITEMS

Kongs, Nylabones and Bully Sticks increase mental stimulation and keep the dogs busy for hours, which in turn can provide a much needed distraction from the shelter environment.

DAY FOSTER TRIPS

Our volunteers routinely take our sponsored dogs on outings!  Whether it's hiking, happy hour, snuggle time on the couch or playtime at the park, these trips allow them to just be a dog.  A day like this filled with positive human interaction can make all the difference. 

MARKETING AND PROMOTION

Bring on the swag! Let's face it, sometimes these kids just need help standing out in the crowd.  That's why we provide them with collars, bandannas, kennel promotion and lots of targeted social media advertisement.

MEDICAL TREATMENT

Dogs with conditions that the shelter is unable to treat are seen by Dr. Oliver and Dr. Graham at Higley Road Pet Clinic.
