The shelter can get to be a bit much for even the most mellow dog. Sleepovers give dogs a break from the shelter environment and are a great opportunity for people who aren’t sure about fostering to try it out. If you are too busy to foster a dog during the week but would love to help a great dog, a weekend sleepover can be a perfect fit.
Sleepovers are also great if you’d like to take a dog for a day out, but don’t want to worry about bringing her back by closing time. Animal Services can provide you with a crate and everything else that you need.
Feel free to contact us if you have any more questions about this program. Click here and check under the “Foster” heading to find contact information for the Alachua County Animal Services foster director if you’re ready for a sleepover.
