Shelter dogs are usually confinded to kennels for long periods of time. When TSC first began to work with our Town's homeless dogs, we had the use of the TONH shelter garage to provide space for exercise and training. As good as that was, wouldn't it be so much nicer if the dogs could stretch their legs and burn off energy in an outdoor yard? A spacious, paved area next to the shelter was safely fenced in using TSC funds giving the dogs a chance to chase tennis balls and stretch out under the blue sky and sun.
Next came a generous donation of agility equipment and the real fun began. Working with TSC's professional dog trainer, volunteers learned how to teach our dogs agility training. Going over hurdles, through the tunnel, over the ramp and on the table, we keep our shelter dogs' minds and bodies active while they await a forever home.
