We are back by popular demand!! Join us for our second Doggy Date Day: Dog's Day Out and take a shelter dog on an adventure! You've seen us post about taking shelter dogs out on the town - now it is your turn!


Our application is now closed because the event is full. Thank you to everyone who applied to take a dog out for the day!

For this event, we will have eleven dogs available for our Doggy Date Day. These dogs are listed in the event description on our website and social media. If there is a particular dog you'd like to spend the day with, please indicate that on your application. If the dog is already matched, we will work with you to find another who is available. Dogs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.


You MUST have a reliable vehicle where the dog can be safely restrained or crated to transport them.

Pick-up will be at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, April 6, at the Brougher Companion Animal Shelter – York County SPCA, 3159 N. Susquehanna Trail, York, PA 17406.

Once you arrive, our staff will review basic safety and handling; this is required to participate in the program. We will be available to answer your questions before leaving with your dog.

Before you leave, all participants will take a short lap around our facility, walking their assigned dog with a YCSPCA volunteer to ensure they are comfortable handling them.

Dogs MUST be returned to the shelter by 4:00 p.m. After the event, we ask that all participants complete a "Dogs' Day Out" report card. This information helps us learn more about dogs outside the stressful shelter environment. A link to the report card is available here:
