We’re having a ball with this program and right now, this page is a diamond in the ruff! But we don’t want to leave you high and dry, so here’s some preliminary information!

Q: WHAT’S DOGGIE ENTOURAGE?
A: It’s a program to get dogs out of the SPCA for a few hours (or the whole day!) so people out in the public meet our adoptable dogs!

Q: HOW WILL YOU DO THAT?
A: SPCA dogs will be out and about with their entourage of staff members and volunteers! You’ll see them at places like farmers’ markets, stores, ice cream stands, popular outdoor hang outs — all kinds of safe places where fun people and potential, new adopters gather!
