The HSSLC Enrichment program is designed to improve and enhance the mental lives of the dogs in our care. Many times dogs come into a shelter and become anxious or depressed. There is such a high energy level in the kennels that stresses some dogs out. Certain dog breeds also require a lot more exercise and attention than other breeds. If they aren’t able to get the needed exercise, this can lead to anxiousness or lashing out. This is why the Humane Society of St. Lucie County has decided to launch our NEW Enrichment Program.
