NASHVILLE (WSMV) - We all need a vacation once in awhile, and so do our four-legged friends!

The Metro Nashville Animal Care & Control shelter has a program called 'BowWow Breakouts.' 

It's where people can foster a dog for a day or even several days to give them a getaway from the shelter!

MACC officials say this program is a great way for dogs to get a break and also for families who are looking to adopt a pup.
