CHESAPEAKE, Va. - You can now apply to spend some time with dogs up for adoption in Chesapeake!

The Chesapeake Animal Service is asking residents to participate in the "Snout and About Field Trip Fostering Program" with shelter dogs.

The program gives people the opportunity to get dogs some time outside of the shelter.

"The program is designed to make participation easy. No prior experience is necessary, and participants will be provided with everything they need for a successful field trip," organizers said.
