Who needs a calendar, anyway? There’s no time like the present to try out Albuquerque Animal Welfare's fun and festive idea that engages staff, enriches the dogs in your care AND provides opportunities to promote them on social media.
The inventive team at the ASPCA Partnership agency throws pretend birthday parties for their canine residents. And nope, it’s not just a good excuse to eat more cupcakes—double up on enrichment time to give the pup some special attention, break out the treats (a great project for your young volunteers!), pop on a party hat and bring out the camera.
This post serves as a way to promote Choo Choo for adoption and spreads such great vibes about what a caring, fun place shelters can be.
