Minneapolis Animal Care & Control rolled out a new tool this month to keep the most energetic shelter dogs moving.
The Friends of Minneapolis Animal Care & Control shared a photo this week of an adoptable pup getting his steps in on the new treadmill from dogPACER.
"MACC purchased a dogPACER Treadmill earlier this year, and last week Follow Me Dogs trainers volunteered their time to teach MACC staff and volunteers on how to properly acclimate a dog to this amazing tool," the Friends group shared on Facebook.
The intent is to give overstimulated dogs a chance to burn off some steam before playgroups and provide a new way to exercise when weather makes it challenging or unsafe to go outside.
MACC is a municipal shelter caring for stray, abandoned and surrendered animals in the city.
