Animal shelters see dogs that have abandoned, abused, and neglected. And although the dogs have most likely been rescued, now the dogs are in cages still not getting much exercise or attention.
But this was a lucky day for a group of rescue dogs from the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter.
St. Joseph High School’s cross country team decided to invite shelter dogs to run with them every morning during their practices. So they went to the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter and picked up 14 dogs to run with them.
Coach Luis Escobar posted on his Facebook account:
“This morning me and the St. Joseph High School Cross Country Team conducted our workout at the County Animal Shelter in Santa Maria. With the help of Stacy Silva we successfully completed the first ever team Dog Run! Each team member was assigned a dog and we went out for a couple miles around the shelter. I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun…the dogs or the kids. Either way, it was a great time and I am sure we will do it again sometime soon. Thanks Stacy Silva and Geoff Clinton.”
