The Furry Companions

Wrap up your weekend on a heartwarming note by lending a helping hand at the K9 Friends Shelter, a volunteer-run organization dedicated to rescuing and rehoming stray and abandoned dogs. Participate in their dog walking program, where you can take a furry friend from the kennels to a dog-friendly location for a few hours. Not only can your stroll make a significant impact on the life of a dog in need, but hanging out with cute pups is proven to be good for your mental health.
