Routt County Humane Society (“RCHS”) is collecting items to be transported on behalf of “two generous and devoted RCHS volunteers from Craig, Colorado who have volunteered to take much-needed supplies to Texas shelters,” according to Jessica Scrobble, Animal Care & Adoption Technician with RCHS. Scrobble said the 22-foot trailer leaves Monday Sept. 4. RCHS will accept donations anytime between until 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 3.

“The goal is to help both dogs and other animals in Houston and its surrounding cities. Because of the transport laws, we are unsure if we can bring dogs back but would be willing to do so if we had the opportunity,” said Scrobble.

After receiving brief instructions from Jana Hoffman, ABC Certified Dog Trainer, and with an introduction to the Routt County Humane Society’s shelter dogs, a group of volunteer dog walkers from Smell that Bread bakery took four shelter dogs on an hour-long pack walk.

“The pack walks just came into full swing this week,” said Alexis Pagoulatos, Executive Director of Routt County Humane Society (“RCHS”) located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. “We have tried to prepare for them, trying a few things to see how they would work with our dogs and how we could manage it safely that worked with our dog walkers and benefitted our dogs,” said Pagoulatos.
