Classes with DogsDid you know that dogs who’ve received some obedience training are less likely to be surrendered to a shelter? To help train, and enrich the lives of our dogs, we run special group classes just for shelter dogs – everything from Adoption Academy™ (basic obedience) to Hollywood Hounds™ (tricks). Level 2 and higher volunteers may take shelter dogs through classes.

Adoption Academy™: Thursday, September 5, 10am-11am, Long Beach
Shelter Scents™: Thursday, September 12, 10am-11am, Long Beach

RSVP: Training at training@spcaLA.com
