PET OF THE WEEK - REBEL

REBELww.jpg

Rebel is a beautiful female, tortie Domestic Longhair. She is about 3 years old, and she has been at the HSVC since April 24, 2015 (she is one of the twenty cats our Humane Officers rescued in the field). Rebel is good with people and other cats, but she is still new to the cat room and needs a little bit more time to warm up. Come, bring a book, and sit by her for awhile and read together to gain her trust. You will be rewarded with a beautiful and loyal friend! Come meet her today!

Susie Gets A Makeover!

SUSIE.jpg

A very special THANK YOU to Puff N Fluff Pet Grooming in Meiners Oaks for taking such good care of our sweet Susie! Susie came into the shelter completely matted, with burrs and sticks stuck in her fur. She smelled terrible and was obviuosly uncomfortable in her own skin. One of our long time supporters called up Puff N Fluff and they offered to take care of her for free! Not only that they donated two FREE groomings a month to the Humane Society! Thank you Amber and Puff N Fluff staff for your support. Susie is super happy with her new 'do!

Beautiful Betsy

Betsy is a 7-year-old female, black Italian Greyhound and Chihuahua mix. She has been at the HSVC since Jun 05, 2015. Before Betsy was brought to the HSVC she had been found out in a field behind an old abandoned building by her soon-to-be rescuers. She was injured, most likely from being hit by a car and starving. Her rescuers are unsure of how long she was out there. Since her injury was so extensive, she had to have her hind leg amputated.

Dog Grooming 101

Dog Grooming 101

Keeping your dog groomed is an essential part of dog ownership and a responsibility that is often overlooked or ignored. Here at the shelter we see animals every day whose grooming needs have not been attended to. These animals are often in distress, and more likely to have behavior issues when they are not comfortable in their own skin. Just like people, dogs need physical maintenance to not only look, but more importantly feel their best. Grooming your dog can be an enjoyable experience and help strengthen the bond between you and your pet if done correctly. Here are some helpful tips to make grooming your dog more pleasurable for both you and your best friend!

If you have visited the shelter recently you may have noticed our kitten room being a bit sparse. This time of year we get in tons of kittens but they are not available for their forever homes until they are 8-10 weeks old.

Well, for all you patient folks we have good news! Our older kittens were moved in to the adult cat room today to get prepared for moving all the young kittens into the kitten room starting tomorrow! It will take a few days to get them all in there but you can start planning your visit today!
