YOUR SUPPORT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
PROMOTING ANIMAL WELFARE IN WAYNE COUNTY

Because of You...

Goal: $40,000

Because of your support, we are busy removing and replacing the current inefficient fencing and incorporating the three additional play yards, along with adding a separate fenced in play area specifically designated for the dogs as they newly arrive at the shelter! By meeting our $40,000 goal, we can provide the shelter with a total of six play spaces for the dogs. Each separate play space will also provide an extra area where volunteers can spend one-on-one time with the dog. Thank you for supporting this important project!

About the Project: 30 Dogs...2 Play Yards

Wayne County Dog Shelter & Adoption Center on average houses 30 dogs daily. Each one of these dogs require and deserve quality time outside of their kennel. Currently, the shelter only has two usable outdoor play yards. With 30 dogs and only two play yards, this doesn’t allow each dog ample time to relax, explore and decompress.

How Play Yards Help Dogs:

Socialization:

Socialization for shelter dogs is crucial for the dogs' physical and mental well-being.

Exercise:

Provides much needed aerobic exercise to keep them healthy and more relaxed while in their kennel. The play yards will also be equipped with access to new objects, such as agility equipment, ramps, pools.

Opportunity to Express Normal Behaviors:

Normal behaviors such as running, digging, playing, sniffing, and exploring provides important stimulation that will help them when they find their new home.

Stimulation of All 5 Senses:

Provides outdoor environmental stimulation of all five of their senses, which is very enriching to a dog.
