Tails on the Trails

[AACCC note:  This is about a Walking Club lead by AACCC volunteers John and Bev Faunce. ]

by John and Bev Faunce

Almost any weekend, John and Bev Faunce can be found walking one of their dogs on the Anchorage Volkssports Club’s Campbell Creek Trail (YRE). The start point for this walk is the Anchorage Animal Care & Control Center (AACCC), where they sign-in for the walk and pick up their canine companion for the first half of the walk. As volunteers at the AACCC, they enjoy giving the dogs a chance to escape from their kennels for a little while, get some exercise, and socialize with other people and dogs they meet on the trail. The calming effect of the exercise and socialization are important aspects in helping the dogs become more adoptable. After completing a basic training course, volunteers are able to walk dogs, groom the cats, or help out in other ways at the AACCC.
