Are you thinking about getting a pet bird for the kids? Birds are fascinating creatures and serve as great pets. In general, there are a handful of breeds that are perfect for children due to their intelligence, sweet personalities, and general temperament.
RuffTail Runners is an Austin-based program that pairs runners and walkers with shelter dogs to give them much-needed exercise, fresh air, and time away from their kennels. Launched in 2011, RuffTail Runners has grown to include hundreds of volunteers in multiple locations throughout central Texas.
Trained volunteers go to area shelters at their leisure (no schedules or advanced sign-up required), check out a dog, and then take it on a walk or a run. Sometimes these can be long runs of several miles; other times volunteers are asked to simply take a dog for a short walk around a field. At the end of the outing, the volunteer checks the dog back in to its kennel.
