Dogs seem to love me. Is it because I bend to their level and talk to them softly or is it because I always carry treats? Your dog and I will both have a great time on our walk. We will stop to explore important smells, but not long enough to roll in them! I am newly retired and the excitement of my day is taking a dog out for a great walk.

Dog Boarding in Santa Clarita

Santa Clarita is located just north of Los Angeles in California. Since it is so close to L.A., it often faces a lot of the same problems that the big city does. One of these problems is a large homeless animal population. As the fourth largest city in the county, L.A. has hundreds if not thousands of stray cats and dogs that are looking for new homes, many of which are in Santa Clarita. There is only one official animal shelter in the area, but they do also have a super-unique rescue in Santa Clarita that has earned attention across the country.

Citizens for Shelter Animals is an animal shelter that brings in animals due to be euthanased from other shelters in the Los Angeles area. The shelter takes in and cares for hundreds of animals, and even takes in some unusual animals like racoons, opossums, and hawks! Food, shelter, and medical care are provided for all animals at Citizens for Shelter Animals until new homes can be found.

One of the best rescues in the area is also the most unique. The Gentle Barn is an animal rescue located in Santa Clarita that is home to farm animals, cats, and dogs. Since opening in 1999, The Gentle Barn has helped numerous animals. The rescue is currently home to over 170 animals. They host visitors who can interact with all the animals housed within their walls. While this isn’t a traditional animal shelter, The Gentle Barn allows you to sponsor animals to help pay for their care. There are now Gentle Barn locations in St. Louis, Missouri, and Knoxville, Tennessee, as well.
