This holiday season, Central Ohio families can once again make a big difference in the lives of some well-deserving pups.
The Franklin County Dog Shelter is continuing its massively popular Holiday Sleepover program again this year.
Over Thanksgiving, Christmas, or New Years’, interested families can host a dog in their home. Because the shelter is closed for the holidays, it’s the perfect way for the pups to get some extra snuggles at a time when their human contact would otherwise be limited.
The shelter provides all of the supplies needed to host your furry friend for the holidays. The staff will help participants to find the best fit and to answer any questions they may have about hosting a pup in their home.
Families who host a pup will be asked to take photos of the dog and write up a paragraph description of their experience, which will help the dogs get adopted down the road.
If you volunteer to host a dog and then fall in love, you can adopt that pup for just $18
The Thanksgiving sleepover will run from November 22-27. Each year since the program began, hundreds of dogs have found their forever homes thanks to the Holiday Sleepover. Sleepover Pickups are on Tuesday, November 22 from 11:00 a.m.- 6:00 p.m. and returns are on Sunday, November 27th from 9:00am – 4:30 p.m.
The Franklin County Dog Shelter is located at 4340 Tamarack Blvd, Columbus, OH, 43229.
