Allturf picks up tab for golf course dog adoptions

May 11, 2017  By  Mike Jiggens

Allturf Ltd. of Innisfil, Ont., a supplier of golf and turf products, believes golf courses and dogs go hand in hand, whether it’s a matter of dogs chasing unwanted geese away from the property or simply to serve as a friendly companion to staff and golfers. Allturf has joined forces with local SPCA branches to launch a new program called Allturf Homes for Hounds.

Allturf has offered to pay the cost of dog adoption from local SPCA branches so that its new home becomes a golf course’s turf maintenance department. The company will look after adoption costs, initial vaccinations and paper work.

“We believe that golf courses and dogs go hand in hand, whether you envision your newest member greeting golfers or keeping geese at bay or just being there to receive friendly pats,” Allturf tweeted. “We would like to facilitate the process for any golf course looking to become a forever home for a dog. On any given day when you visit our offices, you will see any number of dogs roaming the hallways and visiting the boardroom.”

Anyone interested in taking advantage of the program should email Emily@allturf.ca. For more information about dog adoptions, visit www.meetyourmatch.ontariospca.ca.
