Saying goodbye to Summer.

474570933Driving home the other night – a gentle fog drifted across the road. Noooo, summer can’t be over! How did we miss the field grass that the dogs run through – turning from green to gold? Nothing to do but embrace the change in temperature, the darker mornings and crisp autumn evenings.

We can’t leave summer behind without thanking everyone for an amazing Scrub-A-Mutt Event! Nearly 300 dogs came out to be washed, the vendor’s said they had a wonderful experience, even the rescues adopted out quite a few dogs AND cats!

Our organization’s name change to Save-A-Mutt really hit home too… for the first time, we saw familiar faces attend – dogs we had first seen from ads on Craig’s List or on transport from high-kill shelters in LA, dogs that we were responsible for saving. They were now happy with families and oh so big, Lennon and Harrison, little Brody, Cali the gorgeous little Pyrenees, Frenchi, Ozzy the chow mix with no name – what a joy to touch them, hug them again. And of course, your donations to the event raised over $5500 – all of it going to great charities! Thank You!

Keep following us on Facebook and don’t forget, Dogtober Fest is this Saturday, October 18th!  More info at our events tab.

Scrub-A-Mutt 2015 is August 22nd!
