Running Club Spotlight: The People and Animal Cardio Klub (PACK) - Washington Humane Society

Washington, DC - PACK was started in 2008 when a couple of WHS employees began to take a particular shelter dog for a run on Saturday mornings.  They immediately noticed an improvement in the dog’s focus and overall behavior.  This inspired them to start a program so more shelter dogs could reap these benefits.  PACK gives dogs a chance to get out of the shelter and stretch their legs.  Not only do they get to burn off energy, but PACK volunteers also spend time training them skills that will help them be successful in a home, such as leash walking, sit, down, and stay.
