A shelter pets can go to just for the day

“Behave or you are going to the dog pound!”

As it turns out, when the “dog pound” in question is the Saunders County Lost Pets shelter, threatening your dog with an admission there isn’t so scary.

In fact, SCLP looks like a pretty wonderful place — for dogs, cats and kids — to spend time.

SCLP is an animal rescue organization in Wahoo, Nebraska, that gives loving care to strays and otherwise homeless dogs and cats from the region. My oldest friend Stacy Ideus, who volunteers at SCLP, described the no-kill shelter on her blog as “more like a group home for dogs and cats.”

As a means of generating funds for the cause, the shelter also reserves a few of its kennels for boarding. Although I can’t speak personally about the level of care offered, I think SCLP sounds like a great option for traveling pet parents in the Saunders County area who want to support animal rescue and send their fur babies somewhere safe.

To learn more about SCLP, check out the video, photos and the accompanying post Stacy wrote about the organization over at her blog.

After watching the video, what do you think? Would you send your pets to SCLP?

Those who are in the Kansas City area have an opportunity to be photographed by Stacy next weekend. For more information about scheduling, pricing and her photographic style, check out her KC Urban Shoots guide.

I live with two formerly wayward dogs. I care deeply about the environment, and I think gardening is a revolutionary act.
