A Groundbreaking Interactive Play & Exercise Area In Tulare

A few weeks ago the Tulare Animal Shelter held a groundbreaking ceremony with a difference for a new 780 sq ft interactive play and exercise area for puppies and dogs. The facility, which will cost approximately $30,000, has been primarily funded by a grant from the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation and the Tulare Rotary Club.

On March 6, Mr. Helo, a pit bull rescue, kicked off the building project at the 3817 So. K St. facility by breaking the ground, digging eagerly for a bone the city’s animal services manager Frank Furtaw had buried earlier. The interactive area will allow staff, volunteers and potential dog owners to play and exercise dogs in one of four areas that will comprise the completed project.

Dining With Dogs

New California State Legislation sponsored by the Social Compassion In Legislation (SCIL) that will make it legal for restaurants to offer areas for people to dine with their pets has been introduced by assemblymember Mariko Yamada (D-Davis). AB 1965 would allow dog owners to dine out with their furry friends, by permitting restaurants to voluntarily allow pet dogs in outdoor seating areas under specified conditions, unless a local ordinance determines otherwise.
