Gloria Dei Lutheran has a sign on our front lawn that says “Everyone Welcome!” We’ve gladly extended that welcome to include our canine family members & neighbors who would like a fun place to socialize and exercise in our gym. We’re proud to be a place where God’s love can be shared with all God’s creatures!
Our Play Date now has a private Facebook group. Click here to join.
Winter play dates will begin after January 2020.

* Have a blast! Please hang your coats in the hallway outside of the gym.

By joining us, you’re also saying it’s okay if we take a few pictures of the dogs too! We’d like to share them!
Finally, we’ve set up a donation page if you’d like to contribute to coffee/ maintenance costs. Suggested donation is $5.00 hour. If you can’t contribute, you’re still 100% welcome. Since 2018, we donated close to $3,000 to local rescue organizations.
When you arrive, we’ll ask for you to list any rescue organizations you support. At the end of each month, we’d will make a donation of 50% of the proceeds to the rescue that gets the most votes from our visitors.
We’ll have a donation bucket available for cash each week, in addition to an Ipad Square if you’d like to contribute electronically.
Thank you for your support! Hope to see you at least once this month! New friends welcome.
