Watch For Us This Weekend!

Looking for something fun to do with your dog this weekend? Why not take a walk - a Dog Walk, at Rancho Bernardo Park. They are holding their annual dog walk fundraiser this Sunday, from 8am-noon.

There are many rescues and vendors who will be there too - including us! Stop by and say hi to Luna, or pick-up information about animal care and animal hospice, or even sign-up to volunteer.

We look forward to seeing you!

Time To Catch Up...

It's hard to believe so much time has gone by since I last wrote anything about the sanctuary happenings. Now it's time to bring you up to date:

Bob was neutered almost 2 weeks ago. The picture above was taken before surgery (when he's still happy!). He's healing very well!

Waldo is in the small crate, he went to see Dr. Booman the same day for a recheck of his mouth. We're still struggling with getting him to eat. I've been syringe feeding him twice a day, but he's having trouble swallowing. He's on a heavy-duty medication and supplement regime in the hopes his mouth will heal very soon. He's now spending his days in the Cabana with Leonard and friends, which he really enjoys.

Roger Rabbit

Meet Roger Rabbit. He's darn lucky to be here. Remember the last hot spell we had? Well, this poor guy was out back in a cage in at a local feed store basically left to die. As they were trying to sell beautiful tan and grey lops, this guy sat at the back, in a dirty cage, not even under the shade. Who wants an overheated, urine-soaked rabbit? No second thoughts, I "bargained" for his life at a measly $5, hauled buns (pun intended) out of there to get him cooled down, and called animal control; the store got a visit from them, and many of their animals are now gone (yeah!).

He's been with us for a couple of weeks now, gradually starting to trust us, really enjoying fresh produce and fresh hay. He's learning about playing, he loves the dogs and the cats, and as he's shedding out his coat, he's becoming a beautiful grey chinchilla color. He's a real sweetheart, and I'm happy he got a second chance at life!

Wrestle Mania

TV is not the only place you can catch wrestling - I tried to catch these three during their morning wrestling match, but of course they had to stop and look at the camera! Part of the morning and evening routines include a post-meal wrestling match for Maverick, Melody, and Tess. Generally, one is on the ground, upside down, while the other two are tugging on legs or ears. Then they switch, and the game continues until naptime. Hulk Hogan - look out!
