She loves her house and is quiet and content on her couch when she is alone. She seems to also really like her yard, sniffing, digging, watching. She is getting less concerned about the other dogs with each day as she realizes they are a fairly good distance away and that their barking leads to nothing bad. She LOVES her meals and our home made topper of organ meat and fresh fruits and greens. This velevet hippo is doing good. ... See MoreSee Less
Please consider one of these "long stay" dogs. They have spent far too much time in a shelter kennel. Go change a life today.
www.facebook.com/100064580895833/posts/694321206063903/?sfnsn=mo&mibextid=6aamW6Here are our 12 longest-stay dogs, each with their own unique story. This is just one example of why operating at critical capacity levels is a challenge. When we have over 200 dogs within our three shelters like Mac, Billy, Jack, Blue, Ash, and Sunshine (just to name a few) often get overlooked and end up staying with us much longer than they should.
It's a common misconception that a long stay at the shelter means a dog is bad, but that's simply not true. These are good dogs who have been consistently overlooked for various reasons. Some are shy in their kennels, some may bark out of stress but mostly the bigger breeds are overlooked. Our staff and volunteers know them well, and they have advocates throughout the shelter. These dogs are deserving of love and a forever home.
Remember, adopting or fostering any dog from one of our shelters helps not only that individual dog but also creates space and TIME for others in need. 🐾 All adult dogs are $10.00 to adopt and it’s free to foster a dog (licensing fee may apply) thru October 10th. These are all wonderful dogs, and they deserve a chance to prove it. 💙Please stop by our Santa Barbara, Lompoc or Santa Maria Shelters to meet one of our dogs or click the link in our bio to learn more.

Finally got our yard "tiny dog proofed" so Hami's world has expanded beyond just our living room. He still wants no part of being touched by a human but follows us, comes up and sniffs our feet and is absolutely and unequivocally happy with life. He will likely need management his entire life. This dog seems to have running in his blood and is fearless. We do a quick audit of all doors, gates, windows, who's where, etc before we let him out but once we do it is full on shenanigans. Thus his new name: Hami-nanigans.
After trying (and failing) to get the 2 old dogs to play (this goes on for like 20 mins) Hami just takes himself back to his crate. His ways of saying give me a treat and close my door. I'm ready for a nap now.
What a cutie! Energy overload!
Love that Hami, he’s definitely a wild one (in a good way) as you said safety first😂😉
You mean Hami actually sleeps?.......lol. Love him so. Very entertaining. Thank you for video. ♥ Wish I had his energy.
just now having a chance to watch Lady Kim welcome home party! thank you - you are all amazing! And wow, Gabby boy, Big Al, genuinely looked so happy and relaxed! 🥰
Watching a replay. ❤️🐾
Thank you so much for your time and letting us see Lady Kim's arrival. She seems so sweet. ♥ Bless you all for all of your hard work. It is so appreciated by those of us who are addicted to animals. And of course all the animals appreciate you also. Big luv and hugs. ♥
That's a really good idea because so many dogs get loose. This way the owner will be able to keep their pet. 💗
