Introducing “A Dog’s Day Out!”

Our fun, new program brings shelter dogs and the community together! For a small participation fee, you’ll be matched with a dog from the Lawrence Humane Society for a day of fun and excitement.Together you can go for hike, stroll downtown, or just cuddle on your couch!

How it Works

All participants MUST BE 18 years or older. Just pick your preferred participation date and time of pup pick up, fill out the application, and pay the participation fee using the platform below! You’ll then receive a link to view the online orientation and take a short quiz! Once your quiz answers have been reviewed, we’ll confirm your adventure!

Before you arrive on your selected date, shelter staff will work diligently to pair you with an amazing dog that matches your application answers. For example, if you indicated you’re comfortable spending time with a high-energy dog and plan to go hiking, we’ll pair you with a dog that has stamina!

On the day of your adventure, simply show up at the shelter during your designated time slot. Our staff will hook you up with a Pup Pack, which includes everything you need for your pawsome day!

There is a $20 fee to participate.
