UPCOMING OPPORTUNITY** Who can resist an adorable dog?! March 23rd is National Puppy Day and the TAILS Program will be featured on ABC7. T.A.I.L.S. stands for Transitioning Animals Into Loving Situations and it is a partnership between PHS/SPCA and the Sheriff’s Office, where shelter dogs with limited adoption potential are given round-the-clock care and attention from minimum-security inmates. During this eight week program, the inmates are given an avenue for developing skills and making their time more meaningful, and the dogs are given a second chance at becoming more adoptable. Outside of class, dogs live with the inmates who reinforce class lessons and are responsible for the dogs’ exercise, socialization, grooming and housetraining. Transformations are remarkable; the inmates’ work is directly responsible for T.A.I.L.S. dogs being placed into new, permanent homes. As T.A.I.L.S. dogs graduate, we feature them on the PHS/SPCA website. If interested in adopting one, please call Maria Eguren 650-340-7022 ext. 306.
