It’s a nifty concept. People give dogs a break from the shelter environment by taking them out for 24 hours. The dogs wear a visible “adopt me” vest so others know they are looking for homes.
The dogs can go to the park, a person’s house or in our case visit GPB’s pet friendly headquarters.
Socks had a wonderful time mixing and mingling with GPB staff. As a result, one of our employees, Creative Services Manager Lauren Anderson and her boyfriend Alex adopted Socks. They also gave her a new name: Moxie.
