Have you noticed how beautiful our rescue dogs' photos are when browsing on the website? Thanks to That Spunky Monkey Pet Photography generously donating their time and services to our doggies, we have gorgeous photos that we feel capture the dogs' personalities while highlighting their unique physical traits. Research has shown that rescues and shelters that have great photos of their adoptable animals are more likely to attract potential adopters thus directly contributing to more animals finding forever homes!
This has been an amazing late October/November for adoptions - and it is only the first week. Barkley, Kane, Marlo, and Kipp & Rhys (together!) were adopted within this week alone. We couldn't be any happier for them! The icing on the cake is that lets us pull more dogs from the county shelters for our rescue. There are 5 new-to-our-rescue adoptable dogs awaiting to meet their forever families. Keep an eye on our website for their adoption photos and profiles.
Great news for anyone who was planning on donating to our Strut Your Mutt fundraiser - now through October 9th, every day that New Leash On Life raises at least $9, we will be entered into a drawing for a $500 Visa gift card.
Even though we have already reached our fundraising goal, every bit helps to save more animals. Together, we can Save Them All!
What are your plans this Sunday, October 9th? If the answer is, "Nothing", then do we have an event for you. From 11am-4pm visit Hart Park in Newhall, CA and meet all of the adoptable dogs and cats from local shelters and non-profit organizations. There will also be a low cost vaccination clinic, dog show, raffle opportunities, vendors, and food trucks. It is free to attend. Spread the word so that all your friends and family can have a great time and adoptable dogs and cats can find their furever homes.
What is one of the many advantages to adopting from New Leash On Life? When you adopt a dog from our rescue, we are available for any questions you may have after the adoption. Send us an e-mail or give us a call. When Bandito's adoptor e-mailed us a question she had, we were happy to see photos attached. Look at how swimmingly he is getting along with his feline housemate, Snickers! If you already have furry family members, check out our adoptable dogs to see dogs that are compatible with other dogs and/or cats.
Today ended up being a day of donations and we are so thankful. First, our adorable Penny (now Peaches) came to visit and her forever family brought along a dog bed, coat, and collar to donate. Then, a family that was volunteering with us at a Mobile Pet Adoption at Petco in Granada Hills decided to buy some treats for our dogs. Finally, a boarding client decided to round-up his boarding fees and give that as a monetary donation. We are feeling the love today and it is the best!
Please note that our Mobile Pet Adoption Calendar is finally up-to-date on the website! All dates are final unless otherwise noted! If you're a volunteer and would like to participate in an MPA, be sure to add yourself via Volgistics or on the Facebook event!
