High School Cross-Country Team Helps Local Shelter Dogs By Bringing Them Along On Runs

What could be worse than being a human stuck indoors?  How about being a dog that almost NEVER gets to go outside?  Well, for some lucky shelter dogs at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter they got lucky!  The St. Joseph High School Cross-Country Team decided to give the shelter dogs a bit of outdoor time.

Students from St. Joseph’s got to take about a dozen dogs with them on their morning run!  The school actually contacted the shelter, and they thought it was an amazing idea!


“I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun – the dogs or the kids,” said team coach Luis Escobar.  “Either way, it was a great time and I am sure we will do it again sometime soon.”

Everyone involved clearly had a really good time!  Some dogs often times don’t get the human interaction and freedom to run!  Even if only for a little while.
