I am an absolute dog person! I’ve had dogs my entire life, just over 30 years. I currently have a 13 year old Chihuahua who I’ve had since she was 8 weeks old and a 13 year old female German Shepherd who I adopted when she was 8. I have a wide experience from very small dogs like Chihuahuas, Bichons all the way up to large strong dogs like American Staffys (Pitbulls) and German Shepherds, and evening a few military trained guard dogs. Dogs tend to like and trust me right away.

Dog Boarding in Vista

Vista, California, is near to many large suburbs and cities in the state. This makes it especially prone to a large number of homeless animals. These animals need to be brought in from the streets and given shelter, food, and medical care. There are a few different animal shelters in the area that do just those things. A couple of these shelters are the Animal Rescue Resource Foundation and the San Diego Humane Society.

The Animal Rescue Resource Foundation (ARRF) is a non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing abused, homeless, and neglected animals and giving them a second chance at having a wonderful life. To help these animals, ARRF has a network of volunteer foster families that care for the animals until they can be placed in permanent homes with new families. In addition to rescuing animals, the organization also makes sure that all of the animals it brings in are spayed and neutered before they go to forever homes. Since the rescue doesn’t operate a shelter, if you are interested in any of the adoptable pets from ARRF, you should contact them and set up a time to meet the animal.

The San Diego Humane Society has served San Diego County since 1880. The organization operates facilities in San Diego, Escondido, and Oceanside, and collectively cares for hundreds of animals every year. These animals are given shelter, food, and medical care until they are found new homes. The San Diego Humane Society is the oldest non-profit organization of any kind in San Diego.
