Hi! My name is Gina and I love dogs (but that’s why everyone is here, right?) I’ve been employed by animal shelters for the past six years, and was the dog behaviorist at my last shelter for over five years. Much of my focus was helping “difficult” dogs to become adoptable and find loving homes! I currently own a chihuahua mix and a yorkie/beagle, but my family’s pit bull was the dog that first proved to me how amazing dogs are and why I’d like to work with them as my career.

Hello, my name is Shandra Post. I am new to the Chico area. My background is horticulture; specifically landscaping, gardening and nursery work, though the season is slowing down. My passion and hobbies are my pets. I have been a dog owner for over 20 years. I have cared for everything from dogs to tarantulas. I volunteered at the Monterey County SPCA for 3 years before relocating to Butte County. I love nature, animals, and am not afraid of cleaning up after either.

I’m Emily! My family got a dog when I was little, and I've been hooked ever since. My experience at the animal hospital where I worked for 2 years (Vet Tech) made me more aware of how to properly care for dogs in everyday situations, but also how to be on the look out for signs of illness, fear, and aggression in our furry friends, and I was trained on how to properly respond in those situations. I love taking care animals of all kinds and look forward to meeting yours!

Paradise - it's more than just a dream! In this small, California town, it's such a prevalent theme it's even in the name. Paradise, California is a quaint city about an hour and a half north of San Francisco full of modern comfort, outdoor fun, and most recently, plenty of accommodations for you and your pup. Paradise has increasingly become a dog-friendly city in the past few years, with much of the credit for this going to the shelters in the area.
One of the most popular shelters, Wag and Whiskers Pet Rescue, is a no-kill, 501(c)3 shelter that's been incorporated since August of 2015. This shelter services Willows, Chico, and Paradise California. They rescue animals that are at risk in other shelters for euthanasia and take in pups that have been surrendered by their owners. Overall, they're committed to helping the neediest pups while leaving space for those that are readily adoptable.
Another shelter that serves this area (though it's a bit of a distance away) is the Sacramento SPCA. This open-admission shelter accepts all surrendered animals despite age, health, breed, or behavior. They're committed to their no-kill pet policy and to helping animals of all kinds find responsible, fur-ever homes.
You've seen the dogs playing poker around the table - this isn't quite that, but it's probably just as adorable! The Viva Paws Vegas Fundraiser is an annual event hosted by Wags and Whiskers that you and your pooch can attend. Join the food, fun, entertainment, and more to help the rescue raise money for the pooches in their care (and future doggos, too). Hosted in nearby Chico, you and your Paradise pup won't want to miss this Vegas-themed event. Of course, costumed pups are always encouraged!
Luckily for you and your pooch, Paradise has their own pawesome, luxury dog park within the city limits. If you and your pooch like outside adventures, plenty of space to run around, agility equipment, toys, and more, then the Lezlie Morrow Memorial Dog Park is the perfect fit for you! Want more options? Head over to nearby Degarmo Dog Park in Chico - just a few minutes down the road - for some fenced-in, off-leash, pup activities!
Come one, come all to this annual event in Chico (just a short drive down the road) that will get your tails waggin'! This fundraiser walk is a yearly event that began in 2014 that is fun-filled and fantastic. You and your pup can raise money on a run-walk-sniff of your own pace, meet and bond with other pups, and spend the day enjoying each other company. Don't miss out on this awesome event that helps your local shelters take care of pups in your area!
You definitely didn't read this wrong, we said Pup Crawl! As in, the ultimate pub crawl you won't want to miss! You and your pup can join up with hundreds of other pooches and pawrents for the annual Mardi Paws Pup Crawl, a Mardi Gras-themed pub crawl! For four hours, you and your doggo can trot around downtown Chico, drink delicious brews, bond, and raise money for the local Humane Society!
This is the largest doggo-friendly event that's held in the Paradise and Chico areas, and if that's not enough to convince you and your pooch to join the fun, maybe the event description might be. You and your doggo can join in with over 1,500 pawrents and pooches for a fun day of run/walks, festival food trucks, carnival games, vendors, dog zones, demonstrations, contests, costumes, and more! This event is one of the largest fundraisers the Butte Humane Society puts on, and you won't want to miss hanging out with all the local pooches!
