Presentation - Voice 4 Dogs




Several of our Shelter committee members and volunteers got the privilege of attending a presentation today by Silvia Jay, Webite




Silvia says "Mindful Leadership puts dogs first, decreases stress and fear, and opens the door for true companionship. Your reward is voluntary compliance and reliable, consistent good behavior. "


We had a nice little bag lunch and lots of socializing.









Thanks to Silvia for the excellent training session, I have learned lots of valuable lessons in dog training, and I've already started to enjoy my newly signed book. Dump Dog






Jo-Ann L. is showing us her signed book, Dump Dog

We Survived....




These 2 cats were found abandoned in an apartment building in Amherst, the Landlord was shocked to find these cats with no food or water and the tenant gone. We are assuming they were left in the apartment for approx. 3 days. The Landlord quickly went to get some food and water and contacted the SPCA, the local LA Animal Shelter assisted with getting foster care for these 2 cats. If anyone is interested in adopting these cats please contact the Shelter.

RIP Sasha - Llasa Apso

Sasha was used for many years to produce puppies for sale and was finally signed over to our shelter. Sasha had a number health problems. Sasha did not make it through her last surgery.


Thanks also to the VanderRoest family, who adopted Sasha, welcomed her into their family of many dogs and gave her so much love in her final month.

We know they miss her a great deal

Kuranda Beds at the Shelter


All our dogs are sleeping on Kuranda beds, many thanks to our generous donors: Melissa Quinn Valerie Stone Staff of Amherst Mental Health Services, Staff of the OR, CCRH and Staff of Addiction Services

Great Pyrenees/Maremma Cross needs home

We need to find a place for a 2 year old neutered male Great Pyrenees/ Maremma cross; lovely dog, good with children, cats, other dogs, sheep, goats, etc. Sleeps indoors but guards the property in the day. The farm is in the middle of a village and the dog treats the whole village as his territory to patrol and some of the less tolerant neighbours are complaining. Given the nature of this breed combo, he would be suited to a small farm, not too close to other houses. He is not in any way aggressive, but does bark at strangers at night. He is very large 150-200 lb
