A California high school cross country team decided to change things up during summer workouts and, in doing so, they let the dogs out.

The St. Joseph High School Cross-Country Team in Santa Barbara, California, partnered with the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter to get shelter dogs out of their enclosures and onto the trails and running paths where the team trains.

The team was able to give around 12 dogs a reprieve from being in the shelter by taking them on their morning run August 4. The dogs seemed to enjoy being out as well, although one pooped pooch had to be carried part of the way.

“I am not sure who was more excited and having the most fun… the dogs or the kids,” Luis Escobar, former coach of the cross country team, posted on his Facebook page. “Either way, it was a great time and I am sure we will do it again sometime soon.”

    On the Cross Country Runners, Saint Joseph High School is in Santa Maria, not Santa Barbara. That being said Santa Maria is IN Santa Barbara COUNTY. Just in case anyone is looking for a doggy.
