Leash Walking Program
The program is designed to teach volunteers, adopters and our guests the basic skills to safely introduce cats and kittens to walking on a harness.
In a shelter environment, we try to provide as much stimulation for the cats and kittens as possible to reduce stress and boredom. Teaching cats and kittens to walk on a leash not only provides stimulation, it improves social skills and increases their ability to adapt to new environments. It can also bring attention to some cats that normally do not stand out in a large group; increasing their chances of getting adopted.
