HPAN Sponsors Off-Leash Area at Local Shelter
The Oak Ridge Animal Shelter’s dog walk area was missing an important element-an area where dogs could get exercise without being tethered to a leash. HPAN had the idea early in the year to sponsor an off-leash area for the shelter. Partnered with the Shelter Animals Rescue Group (SARG) and the Woodland Girl Scout Troop #20236, HPAN made this dream a reality when on July 1st, the completed off-leash area was dedicated to the shelter in a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Pictured are members from each of the three sponsoring agencies and shelter staff.
