Doggie matchmaker's 500th Post!!!

I accidentally noticed today that this post would be the 500th post on this blog!! I also noticed that since it's inception in 2007, the blog has had almost 40,000 page views! Okay, some of those page views may include myself but no way did I look 40,000 times!! Come on, that's just cray cray...

I want to express my thanks and gratitude to everyone who has participated in this blog, providing content, photos, shares and all the love that it takes to volunteer at shelters and rescue animals! I love you all! 

Special shout out to Mirja Bishop, the amazing lady who writes all the wonderful copy for the West LA flyers! She really goes the extra mile in all she does for the shelter.  :-)

Thank you!!!

Okay, tell me this guy isn't a cutie pie! He's at the West LA shelter right now!! Please network him!

Dog reactivity, is it really such a crime??

First off, really great post by trainer Nicole Wilde about how we humans tend to over react to our dog's reactivity! 
Have a look!  http://wildewmn.wordpress.com/2013/08/20/is-reacting-really-reactive

Also, poor Lily, the volunteers at WLA have been working so hard with Lily to get her out of harms way. Right now she is IN TROUBLE with TIME RUNNING OUT... You can donate towards her rescue. Contact Mirja at MBishop355@aol.com.  Please network her too! Thanks!

Spring is here! Feral cats & dogs for adoption.

photo from www.lynchburghumansociety.com

Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I do love to enjoy the outdoors and see all the animal activity going on as birds build nests and everyone emerges from their long winter hibernation... Okay, well maybe not so much in LA, but I guarantee that it is going on all around us.

For example, our dear feral cats have done their mating and are now nesting... I just caught two pregnant feral cats that have been living around my property. I will have both cats fixed when they are done nursing, socialize the kittens, have the kittens fixed and find them homes. The queens will be set free back onto my property once again but at least I will know that we won't have anymore kittens that would probably either end up as coyote food or hit by a car.

I love my feral kitties as they keep the rodents at bay which is a real service if you ask me. They are beautiful to look at and seem so grateful for the meals I provide. I look forward to many more years enjoying their presence and I am so glad that there will be no more kittens!

I found a great site called Indy Feral that can give you answers about pretty much everything to do with feral cats! They also have articles from lots of other organizations like the Feral Cat Coalition.  I will keep you posted on how things go with my ferals and their litters as things progress.

Now here are a couple of cuties who need homes. Both are sweet and friendly and get along with each other too! Please network these cuties!
