Help us nurse Shira back to health!

We recently took in a female shepherd named Shira.  She has been stray for most of her life and was found abandoned behind a restaurant where she was living off of scraps.  After the restaurant went out of business some homeless people were feeding her, but her condition and health were deteriorating due to living on the streets.  She was so weak when she arrived one of our volunteers had to carry her in.  After a week of resting and eating some regular healthy food she is already more alert and can walk around again.  She is improving fast and we hope to either move her to our Available Dogs page soon or even just get her straight into a home where she can be loved and taken care of.  In the meantime if you would like to help with her recovery any donations would be greatly appreciated.  You can stop by in person or click on the “Donate” button on the right under the Dog of the Month.  Check out some pictures of Shira below.  She was groomed recently and is starting to smile a bit!  If you’re interested in adopting Shira please fill out our online application and a volunteer will contact you.  You can see a new video of Shira on the Available Dogs page.

Summer appears to have come early this year!  It seems that with this early heat wave the fleas and ticks are waking up early as well.  Dogs can catch fleas and ticks year round in Southern California, but in the summertime with the warm weather they are extra chompy.  We are asking for donations of Frontline Plus for Dogs 45-88 lbs (The purple package with the Dalmatian on the front) to make sure that when you welcome your new shepherd into your home you don’t get any uninvited guests.
