(HUTCHINSON, Kan.) — The Hutchinson Animal Shelter is asking for donations to help build a new outside area for dogs. It's volunteers say the space is needed to make sure pets get enough exercise and stay healthy while they are waiting for adoption.
The shelter has on average 30 to 40 dogs waiting to be adopted. The shelter's volunteers say they spend too much time in their kennels because the only time they get walked is when the volunteers can walk them.
So the shelter is asking for donations to to put in a fenced area behind the kennel building. Volunteers say this will not only help with their physical health, but it will also reduce the dogs' stress.The Hutchinson Animal Shelter is asking for donations to help build a new outside area for dogs.
