We have waited a long time for this news. Ralph is adopted!!! He has found his forever home with the Ham family in Ventura, where he will be the center of attention. Ralph literally handpicked this family. They came to his foster home to meet another dog, but for Ralph it was love at first sight. He followed them everywhere, sat on their feet and gave multiple kisses. The Ham's realized they had been "chosen" and were honored to be Ralph's forever family—just what this lover boy has been longing for! Many of you know of Ralph's journey. He has been in two foster homes and a couple of adoptions, none of which worked out because of his wandering ways. He is such a people lover, to the max. He was just looking for a family who would be around to love him daily, and take him on adventures. Fortunately, he has found this and more, in this lovely family of four who all shower him with love. He is walked twice daily, and goes out for adventures to the park, downtown Ventura, and is hanging wi...

Precious is adopted!!! A senior Chihuahua and a favorite at Ventura County Animal Services, Precious was recently pulled from the shelter by AFLAR. Now she has just been adopted into her new forever home. I went to visit Precious, now named Gracie, and her new Mom, Jean, and took photos. She is just the happiest little girl, and so loved! Thanks to all the special volunteers and staff at VCAS, who loved and took care of this little angel, while she was at the shelter. And special thanks to our wonderful AFLAR volunteer, Maureen, who fostered her and gave her lots of love. Happy, happy life precious little one!
Our recent AFLAR pack walk at San Buenaventura Park, was a big hit with both the 4-legged and 2-legged creatures! It was such good socialization, and fun for all of us. Actually, it was more of a walk and hang, which was fine with everyone. We had to stop for potty breaks, leash instruction, rolling in the grass, pictures, water and chatting. The sea breeze saved us from getting too hot, and it felt lovely. Thank you to our trainer, Gail Major, who volunteered her time to come and help with some leash walking challenges with Cosmo and Snuggles. It was so good to see our AFLAR alumni, whom we worked so hard to place in their happy homes. We hope to have a pack walk once a month. Hope to see you next time!!!

Mr. Money was recently rescued by AFLAR, and has now hit the jackpot in a new foster home. He is the sweetest senior Pit Bull, and is winning everyone’s hearts. He is a gentle, mellow soul. His foster mom and family love him! He is enjoying napping in comfy beds, and being spoiled! So glad we could get him out of the shelter and into a loving home!
