We have another exciting story to share from our new WAGS program. Last month, volunteer Tessa H. got a chance to take Django out and they had a blast!

From Tessa:

Django and I took a trip to Lake Sawyer on Monday, July 23. Django rode nicely in the crate in the back of my car. She was not agitated by other people or dogs we saw on the trip.

Django enjoyed new sights and smells as we walked along the lake. She walked wonderfully on leash – she did not pull much on the leash and responded to input about which way to go. She was also quick to follow directions when we practiced ‘sit’ and ‘lay down’ with treats.

Django had little interest in swimming but enjoyed sticking her paws into the cool water. After we finished the lake visit, we spent some time in my parents back yard enjoying the flowers and the shade.

On the ride back to the shelter, Django curled up in the crate and took a nap.


Django is one of RASKC’s Rover Scholars, so her adoption fee is waived AND her adoption comes with a $400 training “scholarship.” Learn more about RASKC’s Rover Scholarship program. You can also check out more fun pics of Django on Instagram: #DjangoKingCountyPetsA537533.

If you are interested in meeting Django, you can visit her at the RASKC Pet Adoption Center in Kent: 21615 64th Ave S. Kent 98032 (M-F: 12-6pm, Sat-Sun: 12-5pm)

“WAGS” stands for Walks, Adventures, and Getting Socialized! This program allows our current dog walkers to take a dog on an adventure outside of the shelter for a few hours. Interested in becoming a dog walker? To learn more, visit us at:  www.kingcounty.gov/RASKCVolunteer
