VIDEO: ‘Play Pairs’ Has Pawsitive Impact on Shelter Dogs

What dog doesn’t love playtime? Volunteers at County Animal Services are pairing dogs together in a program called Play Pairs.

The dogs are paired together for compatibility so they can freely play, chase toys and take a dip in the pool.

The dogs absolutely love the playtime, the exercise and social interaction. On top of that, play time reduces their stress and shows off their personalities for adoption. You can watch the pawsitive impact the program has on shelter animals above.
