ExPAWditions are a great way to get our dogs out of the shelter to enjoy a day of fun on a doggie field trip.

Ways to Enjoy Time with a Shelter Animal:

Dogs can be picked up any day after 9:30am and brought back by 4pm. The Foster & Animal Care Advocate will need a copy of your driver’s license and a signed agreement on file before the outing. You must be able to provide safe transportation for the rescue and must practice safe handling techniques to ensure the safety of the rescue and others. If you are interested in taking a rescue on an exPAWdition, contact Foster@HSNEGA.org.

Must be at least 18 years old to sign up for an exPAWdition, however, children ages 8-17 can participate as long as they are with a guardian.


Make a difference in the lives of animals.
