ABOUT WOOF PACK

​Since January 2019, volunteers have worked alongside our behavior staff to learn and apply obedience lessons and trust exercises to our shelter animals. We utilize ONLY positive reinforcement methods with the dogs. WOOF Pack volunteers will get a hands-on shelter animals training and enrichment experience.
