Back from Vacation

Vacations are great but I really miss my customers when I am gone. I will be glad to see all the upcomming fur children I have in the coming months. I had an opportunity to see a lot of old friends and connect with people I had not seen in a long while. Now it is time to get back to business at hand and what a lucky person I am to have such loving clients who share their fur children with me.
You will see a new PlayFul Paw Mobile in your driveways, but don't be is just me with another vehicle to better serve you with. I will be better equipped to transport any of my clients to and from the airport and also offer transportation to and from the Vets, Picking up food, or any other errands that I was forced to stop offering as my vehicle was too small. An email and new brochure will follow this posting and please feel free to call if you have any questions! See all of you soon.

Horse Rescue in California

I am taking advantage of some down time and visiting in California. Today I visited White Rock Horse Rescue Ranch. The following is their mission statement:

Our primary mission is to rescue horses that have been abandoned or abused and to find new owners committed to providing them with a loving, caring environment. Our extended mission is to provide unadoptable horses a natural setting in which to live during their remaining days and to introduce various groups of people to the fascinating culture of the horse.

Once inside the gates of this mystical sanctuary, I was overwhelmed by the 45 horses available for adoption and fostering. There were horses of all sizes and colors with varying needs. Although horses are their main criteria, they are not exclusive to horses as there were also many goats, dogs and llamas. There were also many volunteers caring for the horses, riding or just visiting the ranch. I had mixed emotions as I visited with as many as I could. I was thankful for the ranch and the people who selflessly volunteer and for the owners of the ranch. Yet sad that this surely must be a small handful of animals that need our help. The ranch depends on private funding, donations and volunteers. It was apparent that the work involved was tremendous. I am now motivated to seek out a rescue operation in my area but I will do some Graphic volunteer work for White Rock Horse Rescue.
