Today I went to Loma Linda Vet Hospital and picked up a little pittie girl that had just been pulled from the Devore shelter that morning through the very hard work of Diane (a networker) from the Northridge area. This poor girl has had no love all her life but I am sure now that she is at Arc Vet Clinic in L.A. and with Diane watching over her, she will soon get all that she could ever want. So many of these sad stories are out there, it just boggles the mind. And there is no end in sight. At least this little one now has a chance, more than some.
On Monday morning I finally met up with Justin at his work at the Tucson shelter where he is the kennel manager. I toured the facility and its very clean, they handle more dogs than Camarillo shelter, but I don’t believe their kill rate is as high as Camarillo. We spent most of the time discussing getting the dogs out to good homes and what was the best way to accomplish that. Justin has a network of about 60 fosters that he uses and has no kennel facilities, all the dogs that are awaiting to be adopted are in homes, so that really helps in getting them ready for there furever home. Well Justin needed to get back to work so I said my goodbyes and headed back to Camarillo. The drive never gets shorter.
