High School Cross Country Team Takes Lonely Shelter Dogs On Runs

A California high school cross country team took a group of shelters dog out for what could be considered the cutest dog run in history. This is such a great idea.

Students from the St. Joseph High School cross country team picked up about 12 dogs and took them for a group run. “It was a win-win for both the cross country team and shelter dogs,” said Stacy Silva, community outreach coordinator for Santa Barbara County Animal ServicesThe Independent reported. “Tired dogs equal happy dogs.”

And just look at how tuckered out this one pup was! His name is Fred and he had his high school running companion carry him at the end of the run. The team’s coach, Luis Escobar, shаrеd an adorable video on Facebook of the group’s outing that was a few miles long and not far from the shelter. “I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun…the dogs or the kids,” he wrote. “Either way, it was a great time and I am sure we will do it again sometime soon.”

Coach Escobar told reporters that he came up with the idea when he was thinking of a fun way that the teens could earn their volunteer service hours that the school requires. “I just thought it would be a great idea to get the kids together with some of the dogs and go for a run,” he shаrеd. “And that’s exactly what we did.”

“It was interesting because the dogs were so excited to get out and to be outside, but some of them are not in great shape,” the coach shаrеd. “They had a great time, they were barking and running and just going nuts.”
