Dear Diary

Dear Diary, This morning, our plans were washed away by some unexpected rain. I’m not complaining, though, because it just meant more snuggle time on the couch while we watched a marathon of one of my girl’s favorite shows. We spent the week training in public… but I’m still not convinced strangers are safe to be around. I can’t be the only one that is suspicious of other humans, right? Our little town is having its annual Apple Festival tomorrow and my family is really excited. It’s supposed to be a great opportunity for my “training” and “socialization.” I’m pretty […]

We’re all unique in our own individual ways; we’re all crucial pieces to this puzzle we call life. Jones’ mission in life is to remove squeakers from toys.  Whenever we bring a […]

Meet Ingrid

Meet Ingrid. Ingrid is a one year old Pit Bull that arrived to the shelter as a stray on September 14, 2017. Although weighing in at approximately 55lbs, this young girl is sweet and soft as can be. She does fantastic with other dogs during playtime and would love a family to call her own. Founded in 1863, the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control now has a total of seven animal care centers that serve the Los Angeles county area. Most of the animals available are either strays or have been surrendered by their owners […]

Traveling With Rover

After inspecting our new local options for pet care following our move from Los Angeles, we became discouraged as we didn’t feel comfortable leaving our furry family members in kennels where we had little control over their health and safety. It also didn’t sit right with us seeing other people’s pets in the same situations, likely for a lack of a better option. I began to do more research and discovered Rover, a versatile service for pet sitters, dog walkers and owners alike. Not only does Rover do background checks and provide training for their sitters, their clients and sitters […]
