I have had a house full of animals ever since I was a little boy. I have personally taken care of 5 of my own dogs. This includes the bare essentials of walking, playing, feeding, bathing and maintaining the happiness of my dogs. I have a passion for dogs in particular because they are such a care free species. They will show you how happy they are or they can show you that something is wrong.

“Top Dog Express”

Hi, I'm Daniel. I grew up in California housesitting for my uncles 3 Pitbull Mastiffs since I was 13. It was a daunting task at first - but over the years it made me become a dog whisperer of sorts. I am an animal lover in general, but K-9's are my speciality. I enjoy nature and jogging. I want to give your loyal companion the best workout possible. I will be thrilled if you let me be a part of your happy K-9 family too!

Dog Boarding in Santa Ana

Whether small or large, long-haired or short, young or old, every dog deserves a chance at a happy, healthy, and fulfilling life. And in Santa Ana, Orange County’s second most populous city, there are several whole-hearted rescue groups committed to ensuring every dog gets to experience exactly that.

Since 1949, Orange County Humane Society (OCHS) has helped tens of thousands of less fortunate animals. With a mission to provide temporary refuge for sick, lost, abused, and unwanted pets, OCHS seeks to rehabilitate every animal and help them find loving forever homes.

Outlaw Dogs Rescue may not be as well known, but the work this non-profit dog rescue group does is just as worthy of recognition. This volunteer-run organization operates a network of foster homes throughout Orange County, and rescues shelter dogs, surrendered dogs, and animals roaming the streets. It also saves dogs from high-kill facilities and gives each pet the care and socialization it needs until a loving owner can be found.

Animal Donation Advocate is another Santa Ana Rescue group working to help the city’s dogs. Founded in 2008, this non-profit group helps elderly, low-income, and unemployed pet owners pay essential medical bills for pets that they are unable to afford. It also supports spay/neuter campaigns throughout Southern California and Mexico, and works with other non-profit groups to help re-home unwanted dogs.

Whenever the dogs of Santa Ana and surrounds need help, it’s reassuring to know that there are plenty of dog lovers ready and willing to step up to the plate.
