Someone let the shelter dogs out - and they’re taking on the 419!

The Toledo Humane Society is proud to announce our Tails Around Toledo program, which pairs members of the community with shelter dogs for field trips, is officially launching to the public! Outings can last from a couple hours to all day, and can include a hike, a trip to a park, a trip to a pet-friendly store or drive-thru, or even a relaxing nap on your couch at home. Whether your schedule, housing, or allergies do not allow you to own a pet of your own or you are just an avid dog lover, it’s a great way to get your dog fix in!

The Tails Around Toledo program was created in order to help reduce kennel stress and provide dogs with enrichment and increased visibility to adopters in the community. Outings give the shelter valuable insight on what the dog’s personality is like outside a shelter environment, and can lead to better adoption matches. It’s also a great excuse to spend a day doing something new or exploring Toledo

The program is designed to make it easy for the community to become involved - signing up is easy, and participants will be provided with all the necessary supplies for a successful field trip! Individuals interested in the Tails Around Toledo program should visit the Toledo Humane Society’s website at for more information about the program and to sign up online. The shelter offers field trip options to accommodate most schedules, and field trip opportunities will be offered Sunday through Friday every week. Participating in Tails Around Toledo is a low-risk way to get out of your home for a day, grab some fresh air, and give back to the community and our animals!

Tails Around Toledo has already been hugely popular with the shelter’s current volunteers, and have led to more adoptions with our adult pup participants. Similar programs at shelters across the country have been enormously successful, and Toledo Humane Society is excited to join the fun and introduce a new way to become involved to the community!
