Freedom Runner Program

Run with the big dog…and the little dogs. Well- Run, Jog or Walk with SPCA dogs who need a break from shelter life!

Did you know a group of dedicated SPCA Volunteers meet 2-3 times per week after work for a group walk with dogs? Each Monday and Friday around 6 p.m. the group meets for a people and dog “pack walk”. Walks last about an hour and the group meets year round. Volunteers each have different dog handling abilities and are assigned a “Freedom Runner Partner” who best matches their skill level and preferences. All volunteers have completed the required trainings including volunteer orientation and a handling class.
