In the big dog Park, the rough and tumble play.
But on the other side of the fence is where the sugar lives.
Sugar Shack Acres is home to Homeward Bound’s most senior dogs: the sugar faces –
our sanctuary dogs – like once-and-forever feral Red –
and dogs who just love being with other dogs – like Lucy, who is only five, but desperately needed to lose weight. After a couple of weeks with her Sugar Shack friends, she dropped nearly ten pounds (and was on her way home!)
These pups may be a little slow,
But they still get around.
And everyone gets along.
As they say: it takes a long time for a soul to get this sweet.
Some of our volunteers spend all their time in this sanctuary – where the dogs have their own house and a large open yard so they can come and go freely.
Some just pay a visit after walking, feeding, and cleaning up after our “dorm” dogs – only to be mobbed by smiling faces, tail wags and kisses.
And when the young dog pack leaves the Park…guess where the sugar flows?
