Visit Local Attractions and Retailers!

Albany Humane has partnered with Chehaw to allow our daters free admission to the park. Turtle Park in downtown Albany is another favorite spot for our pups. You can also take your date to pet friendly retailers like PetSmart, Tractor Supply, PetSupermarket, Home Depot & Lowe's. We hope you'll stop to treat your date to an ice cream cone at Bruster's or a Puppaccino at Starbucks!

Help a Dog in Need!

Whether it's for a few hours, a day, or a weekend... doggy dates are a wonderful opportunity for our dogs to get out of the stressful, shelter environment. Time away gives them confidence, brings our their true personality and increases their chance of adoption.

The Proof is in the Puppaccino!

Our first doggy date success story features Axel, a 1 year old bully mix who was turned in to us because he was too hyper. He was overlooked for adoption for months until one of our supporters took him on his first doggy date. This date allowed Axel's true personality to shine through and he was adopted the very next day by someone he met while out and about. How's that for a first date. Check some pics of his doggy date below!
