The Companion Animal Alliance began its Date-A-Dog program in December. After attending a 30-minute training course, participants are able to “rent” a dog and take it on an adventure of their choosing. It’s a great way to make a furry friend for those who are either considering dog ownership or want to adopt but are unable to. Training sessions occur on the first Saturday of each month. caabr.com
