I came across this article on a Utah resort that has partnered with a local rescue to help rescue dogs in an innovative way, pairing the dogs with hotel guests for hikes. https://www.yahoo.com/travel/this-amazing-utah-canyon-hike-comes-with-a-rescue-98118831987.html
Guests at the Red Mountain Resort get the incredible opportunity to hike through the mountain with shelter dogs. The dogs get great exercise and have the time of their lives hiking through the hills, while resort guests get the pleasure of playing with the dogs. In the best of possible outcomes, this leads to the hikers adopting their tour guides!
The hiking program has been around for a decade, and it is an example of a brilliant idea executed by a local shelter.
