Open Paw - The Kennel Programme - with Kelly Dunbar
27 July 2017
county/area: Hertfordshire

Imagine walking into an animal shelter where all is quiet and it smells good.


The dogs are peacefully, lounging on beds chewing away on delectable food-stuffed chew toys or sitting calmly at the front of their kennels wagging “Hello” at every passer by.


Volunteers are busily training dogs throughout the facility and Cat Cuddlers are patiently teaching young playful cats to retract their claws before getting over-excited.


This is a shelter where people come for miles, clamoring to adopt the friendly, well-trained residents.


These are dogs that will easily settle into their new, permanent homes.


This is a shelter where everyone that walks in, walks out just a little bit smarter, more aware of their animal companion’s needs.


This is an Open Paw shelter.
