Adoption Day Safety Rules

Safety is our main concern and it is important to follow our safety guidelines. Adoption Days can be stressful or the dogs so we need to make sure that we put the safety of our volunteers and our dogs as our first priority. Our safety guidelines are as follows:

  • Do not allow dogs off leash at any time.
  • Do not remove dogs from crates without help from a core volunteer.
  • Always have a secure collar on dogs so it will not slip off.
  • Keep your dog at least 5 feet away from other dogs (even if both dogs appear friendly).
  • Dog introductions should only be done by core volunteers.
  • Only walk one dog at a time.
  • Always take plastic poop bag and clean up after your dog.
  • Children under the age of 18 cannot walk a dog without an adult holding the leash.
  • Offer water often.
  • DO NOT attempt to break up a dog fight. Call for help from a core volunteer.
  • Please don’t hesitate to ask questions!
