Play for the Day!

Approximately 7.6 million companion animals enter animal shelters nationwide every year.

Hours spent in cages can cause emotional and physical stress to the animals

How it Works

Through Play for the Day!, people are able to pick up animals, give them love, and keep them company until one day they can find a new home. Many people can't afford a pet or can't take care of an animal with conflicting work schedules, Play for the Day! provides the opportunity for humans and animals to spend time together. Going to the park? Day at the beach? Cookout at home? Play for the Day! allows you to take furry friends along for the ride.

Safety

Our Play for the Day! program is for individuals and families seek to provide love and companionship towards the pets.

  • You must be 21 years of age or older to Play
  • All new parties will be required to have a background check ran ($40)
  • If you rent or lease your home, we require written or verbal approval from your landlord before you bring home a pet.
  • If you currently own animals, making sure your pets are up-to-date on vaccinations
  • All cats, dogs, and rabbits are spayed or neutered prior to play dates.
  • If you are interested in a large dog (over 40 pounds), we recommend a secure fenced-in yard, but it is not required.
  • It is the law in Jacksonville and in most outlying townships that dogs be either confined or on a leash at all times.
