You Can Host A Dog From The Franklin County Dog Shelter For A Holiday Sleepover

Last updated:

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.

This year, due to COVID-19, you’ll have to schedule an appointment to come into the shelter. A limited number of dogs will be available for the program, and those interested should schedule a time to visit the shelter and meet the dogs on Tuesday, November 24.

Families who host a pup will be asked to take photos of the dog and write up paragraph description of their experience, which will help the dogs get adopted down the road.

The Thanksgiving sleepover will run from November 24-29. Last year, over 120 dogs found their forever homes thanks to the Holiday Sleepover program. If you’re interested in signing up for the Holiday Sleepover, please click here.
