California Labs and More Rescue– an amazing dog rescue, run like a very smart business, so your entire process of meeting and learning about all these lovable dogs and choosing the one(s) right for you is made a lot easier and more efficient. I volunteer as a foster, and get to watch these little guys blossom and finally find love, health and safety, and their forever family… could that be you?? We’ve just rescued our 10,000th dog in just 8 years– come join our pack! https://www.labsandmore.org/

For almost 50 years, Project Wildlife has given injured, orphaned and sick wild animals a second chance to live and thrive. Even If you find an injured animal after dark, and bring it to their site, as they even have heated cages where you can safely leave them. Their hotline and website provide lots of helpful information. For more info click here https://www.sdhumane.org/programs/project-wildlife/

World Vision is a faith based humanitarian organization where you can sponsor children, or donate to a family in need, and help rebuild their lives and their community. I’ve given all sorts of farm animals, business tools for budding entrepreneurs, yurts that keep a family warm all winter, warm clothing and school supplies, new bicycles and sewing machines…it’s such a joy to give. And now, you can let a child choose you to be their sponsor, and change their life forever. https://www.worldvision.org/

When you’re on vacation, or just looking for excellent day boarding, you’ve got to check out Camp Run A Mutt. There are several locations throughout San Diego County, and I absolutely love the one in El Cajon, and even more importantly, so do my dogs! Owners Molly and Mike are gifted animal lovers, and make sure all the dogs are having a good, safe time. You can even watch all the action on their live mutt cams. https://www.camprunamutt.com/eastcounty/

Talk about a great view– and a fantastic was to get some healthy exercise! In the Windsor Hills neighborhood near downtown La Mesa, you’ll find 3 sets of secret stairs nestled throughout the residential areas. When you climb up to Summit (245 steps) you’ll be on one of the highest knolls in La Mesa, at 830 feet. Enjoy the view! http://www.cityoflamesa.com/298/Secret-Stairs

This link is for last year’s run, but you’ll get the idea on just how fun– and important– this event is, and you’ll probably get some great costume ideas for you and your pup, too! Sponsored by California Labs and More, this event helps support all the essential medicines, food, and extra care that hundreds of deserving dogs need to heal and survive, and get ready to find their new family. https://www.raceplace.com/events/65512/7th-annual-halloween-mutt-run-5k-run-walk

There are 7 lakes, and you can go boating too, plus enjoy special events all year round. There is camping for tents, RVS, and even lakefront cabins you can rent. https://www.santeelakes.com/
