The City of Midland Animal Services is launching a new program called Rescue Runners. Rescue Runners meets at the Animal Services facility located at 1200 N. Fairgrounds on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month, beginning April 1st. Volunteers can check in anytime between 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. Check-in closes at 10 a.m. and volunteers may walk/run dogs until 1:30 p.m.
This volunteer program is designed to recruit people to help walk or run shelter dogs. The outing allows for dogs to showcase their personality outside of the kennel, exercise, improvement in social skills, helping to promote fostering and adoptions.
All volunteers must register and view the runner's guidelines video at Animal Services before their initial outing. Volunteers 15 years old or younger must be accompanied by a guardian at all times.
