Dogs Need Staycations Too!

If you’re a dog lover but don’t have enough time to give to a pooch constantly, well the Winnipeg Humane Society can help.

No one likes to be cooped up in one space for a long period of time and some dogs need a break.  So the WHS has introduced the Weekend Staycation Program through the foster department.

You get to enjoy the company of an adorable dog and give them a weekend to relax and experience our wonderful city!



If you’d like to participate in the program the go ahead and register online now.  Applicants will be matched with a dog (medium and large breed) based on their living situation.  You’ll also be supplied with all the food and equipment needed for the stay, along with an ‘Adopt Me’ vest for their dog to wear in public.

Don’t forget to share your photos and videos of your weekend with the dog on social media by using the hashtag #WHSstaycation.
