This Valentine's day, celebrate and experience true unconditional love (and perhaps your best date EVER) by taking one of our adoptable dogs out on a Dog Date Out! Thanks to a generous donation from Salvation Coffee Co., everyone who participates in a Dog Date Out will be entered into a raffle where 5 winners will be drawn to receive a $5 gift card to Salvation Coffee in Burlington! Raffle winners will be announced at 3:30 and winners can pick up their gift cards after dropping of their pups before closing! Salvation Coffee Co. is a veteran owned independent coffee shop and small batch coffee roaster serving artisan Hot & Cold beverages and locally made baked goods. They are located in Burlington at 3321 S. Church St. To take advantage of this opportunity, schedule your “date” for Tuesday, February 14th.
Dog Day Out Adventures are available to do Monday-Friday; we just ask that you return the dog by 4:30 p.m. since we close at 5:00. Saturdays are a very busy day for adoptions and we prefer our pets to be at our shelter for adopters to meet, so we don’t offer this on the weekend, at this time.
You can check our website (http://www.burlingtonnc.gov/1540/Pets-Currently-at-Animal-Services) to see which dogs are here at BAS and might be available to go on a Dog Day Out Adventure. Please note, if a dog is listed as adoption pending (this is noted in the description section), it is not available to leave our shelter. Likewise, if it is in foster care, it is not available. If there are specific dogs you are interested in taking out, include their names when you schedule your dog day out adventure using the appointment scheduler below.
After your adventure be sure to return here and complete a Dog Day Out Report Card and let us know about your adventure!
Check out one of our beautiful local parks on your Dog Day Out adventure! They are a great place to take a shelter buddy for a hike. Use the All Trails link below to find trails near you:
