#CHSWalksTheDog: Game Night CHS
Welcome to #CHSWalksTheDog, a blog series that brings together notable Charlestonians, with shelter dogs in need of a home, in iconic Lowcountry locations thanks to the talents of volunteer photographer, Heather Moran.
Struggling to choose between a game night in or a night out on the town? Don’t know what do with your dog while your out? Well Jess from Game Night Charleston has you covered!
In this week’s edition of #CHSWalksTheDog, we headed down to the heart of Park Circle to meet up with Jess, owner and operator of Game Night Charleston, one of the newest and most extensive game rooms the Lowcountry has to offer!
We had hear that Jess has a special place in her heart for pitties, owning two of her own at home, so we decided to bring along Honey (tan, female, 3 years old) and Brooklyn (black & white, female, 2 years old).
Jess and her husband opened Game Night at its 1044 East Montague Avenue location last year, and have been overjoyed at how quickly the community welcomed them. They have made a point to give back, by partnering with multiple local charities, including the Animal Society since opening. As dog lovers, the two have made a point to make it clear that dogs are always welcome in the game room, allowing pet owners to not have to sacrifice quality time with their four-legged friends during their nights out.
Jess quickly showed that she wasn’t just fun and games when it came to dogs, helping adjust each pup’s harness to make sure they were as comfortable as can be for their photoshoot. Honey immediately opened up to Jess, proving she’s just as sweet as her name implies. Brooklyn impressed Jess with her natural street-smarts and calmness on the leash.
Day trips out of the shelter can provide long-time residents a break from being in a kennel, allowing them time to decompress and to be stimulated with the sights and sounds of normal life. We also hope that showcasing our longest residents in a different light – outside the shelter walls – might allow a potential adopter to become interested in them when a family sees more normal canine behaviors exhibited on a calm leash walk through the city.
Thank you to Jess and the Game Night team. Go to GameNightCHS.com to see their full list of games and plan your next game night out!
