HAPPY HOUR: Take a Shelter Dog on a Date!

Have you ever wanted to foster a dog, but only for a day?! Well maybe you should check out Anderson Humane in South Elgin!

Now, they have a new program where you can take a dog from their shelter out for a day and do, well, whatever! They call it Doggie Day Out and say it gives their adopatable animals a chance to take a break from the shelter and develop their social skills.

All you have to do is apply to become a foster, let them know you want to take a dog out on a date by putting “Doggie Day Out” in the email subject line, and they will take care of the rest!

Once you pick up your pup, the day is yours to enjoy! Maybe you take a stroll on your favorite walking path, or visit your favorite dog park. Maybe you swing by a get them a pup cup of ice cream or just take a drive and listen to 95.9 The River!

Once your date is over, you can drop them back off at Anderson’s shelter…that is,  if you have the will power to let go of the cuteness!
