May 31, 2017 (San Diego) – Amie Brenner knew she needed to do more to help animals in need.  After volunteering at the Helen Woodward Animal Center for over a year, and having two rescue animals of her own, she decided to start a company designing and selling rescue themed phone cases.  Her company, PhoneCasesToTheRescue, donates 15% back to the rescues and shelters and has already seen the positive impact the proceeds have made, which is her entire goal.

DREAM DOGS TODAY

 

By Cate Sacks

 

June 8, 2011 (Blossom Valley) -- When a dog comes to Dream Dogs, sometimes it is sad and submissive, or unable to be controlled, and some were said to be unadoptable by the shelters. At Shelter Dogs to Dream Dogs, those behaviors are all turned around. Let Dream Dogs know what you want, and soon your dream dog will be there for you.

For example:

 

SMOOTH COATED, DRY MOUTH 3 YEAR OLD PROFESSIONALLY TRAINED PUREBRED ST. BERNARD.  This great boy knows his commands, is great with other dogs and loves people.  He is patient and loyal who bonds very closely to his family.  He lives on 3 acres and chooses to spend time next to our kitchen glass door when sleeping outside, and he always comes when called.   He is looking for a home who can give a wonderful lifestyle to such a gentle giant.
