Shelter News 

gold home for the holidays flyer finalAs we begin this holiday season, we share with you the Christmas List from the pets of the shelter…..

A soft bed of my own
A walk in the park
A warm sweater when I’m chilly
A treat when I’m extra good
Someone to love me,

But most of all… A Home For the Holidays!

If bringing a pet into your family is part of your plans this holiday, please stop by the shelter to meet your best friend.

Of all the things they wish for, ‘A Home for the Holidays’ is at the top of their list.  Help make their dreams come true!


Our first much-anticipated annual calendar is now available.  After a valley-wide call for Calendar-Coverphotos, the perfect pet was chosen for each month.  Calendars are available at the shelter, local businesses and on line for a donation of $10.   Calendar proceeds will support our mission of providing shelter, medical care and food for homeless animals until they are adopted.   See below for details.

Due to high adoption rates, we have open kennels that we put to good use by partnering with high-kill shelters in San Bernardino county.  Shelter volunteers pick up adoptable high-risk dogs from these shelters and bring them to San Gabriel where they are quickly finding good homes.  We made another run this week and four more lucky dogs will have an opportunity to find a loving ‘Home for the Holidays’.  Your donations make this possible.   During this season of giving, we hope you will remember our shelter and make a contribution to help us save more lives.


Grooming Transformations:

Many times when dogs come to the shelter, they don’t always look and feel their best.  They’ve been out on the street alone and scared, looking for food, water and shelter.  It’s especially hard for our long-haired friends.    Their fur is matted and caked with dirt and is very uncomfortable.    Thanks to volunteer contributions and transportation, our 4 legged friends are treated to a hot shower, massage, haircut and nail trim.  To make this happen, the shelter has teamed up with My Secret Garden in Pasadena who provides reduced-fee pampering and grooming for our dogs.    They love it…..just ask Mitzi- who proudly shows off her new look and happy confidence!
