The pups are back, and ready for a new challenge! Our popular Barks & Rec program, which pairs participants with shelter dogs, is returning for fall and heading to the trails. Sign up to take a hike through Elmer W. Oliver Nature Park and bring a dog from Mansfield's Animal Care and Control shelter along to check out the woods and fields alongside you! You'll enjoy a guided hike through our stunning nature preserve and the dogs will experience a much-needed break from shelter life, including fresh air, human contact and so many fun new sights & smells to explore. Each class is registered individually, sign up for one day or as many as your schedule allows.
