Shadow's Fund

Thank you to Wendy Domanski of WinkFace Photography for capturing our dogs so beautifully. Scroll through to see some ml of the happy mugs at the sanctuary.Most people think of Lompoc as the home to Vandenberg Air Force base and the launch pad for the SpaceX rockets. Space travel is cool and all, but not far away is something even more outstanding Shadow's Fund. Shadow’s Fund is a wonderful nonprofit animal rescue and sanctuary that brings hope and second chances to the most vulnerable shelter dogs. They take in dogs that would otherwise be overlooked or have a difficult time getting adopted based on their age, breed, or appearance. Walk around the beautiful 100-acre property and you’ll find about 50 dogs -- mostly pit bulls whose fate has been forever changed because of the amazing founders Jill and Cody. This husband and wife team have dedicated their lives to the rehabilitation and re-homing of these dogs. They started Shadow’s Fund to honor their beloved dog Shadow and keep his kind spirit alive. They adopted him after he was found abandoned, at 15 years old, left tied to a tree. The dogs at Shadow’s Fund are all happy and well-loved thanks to Jill, Cody and a dedicated team of volunteers. When I walked around I saw dogs getting love, training and enrichment from everyone there. There were dogs getting walks, pets, kisses, completing training and socialization exercises. I even saw volunteers helping dogs beat the heat of the day in a kiddie pool. Shadow’s Fund isn’t the typical shelter environment. There are no cages or concrete floors – it’s not that kind of place. Instead, each dog has their own ‘room’, complete with a couch and TV. According to Cody, the couches and TVs make it feel more like a home environment for both the dogs and the volunteers. The familiar, laid back environment makes everyone more relaxed and comfortable. I was blown away by the kindness and compassion of every person I met. And I loved being around all their amazing dogs. Sadly, I didn’t get to meet the horses or pigs also on the property -- but there’s always next time. Hopefully I’ll get an invitation back (hint hint nudge nudge). To learn more about this incredible organization, and see all the dogs that are available for adoption or to learn how you can help out please go to www.shadowsfund.org Here are just some of the beautiful souls I met that day. Thanks again to Jill and Cody for all that you do and for letting me come out and take photos. ... See MoreSee Less
