At Playtime Doggy Daycare, dogs bound across 18,000 square feet of rubber flooring, clasping toys in their mouths and scurrying through playhouses. Owner Jody Pawelski has cultivated an experienced, animal-loving staff of both trainers and vets to oversee pups at all times.
In warmer months, canines frolic outdoors in swimming pools. At night, boarding dogs settle down in 25-square-foot temperature-controlled kennels, snuggling up to familiar pillows or lifelike mannequins of their owners brought from home.
When hours of play ruffle up dogs' coats, Playtime's groomers bathe dogs, brush out their fur, and send them on their way scented with the same doggy cologne Lassie wore in her Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech.

Two young participants of the PAL program pair off with a shelter dog, which they train to become a well-mannered member of an adoptive family. During training, children are empowered with the responsibility of caring for the animals, learning to respect them and better understand their behavior. Children can then teach their peers about the need to prevent animal guardians from practicing cruelty and neglect. WHS requires additional funding to purchase supplies for dog training, as well as transportation and snacks for PAL participants.
