volunteer opportunity - Dog Reading Groups

Looking for volunteer opportunities for a child ages 5-12? Look no further than New Leash On Life’s Doggy Reading Groups. For an hour, they will have the opportunity to read to our rescue dogs while practicing their reading skills and building confidence, and learning about animal awareness, care, and safety. There is no better way to spend time with your family and with our adorable adoptables. Sign up to volunteer at newleash.org and we will see you at our next reading group!

Updates from The ranch

At New Leash On Life, it should be no surprise that our professional staff care for our rescue and boarding dog's health and safety. That is why this past weekend we had the wonderful Denise from Sunny-Dog Ink teach Pet CPR and First Aid to our entire staff and a few volunteers. It was a rousing success, where we learned how to assess a situation, remain calm, and use CPR and First Aid skills.

McKenna has been volunteering with us for a short amount of time but her help has made a long-term impact on our dogs. As an Animal Care Attendant, McKenna helps New Leash On Life staff with various tasks such as walking, feeding, and playing with our rescue dogs.

February is Doggy Dental Month

February is doggy dental month! Though we humans tend to brush at least twice a day, our canine friends are often overlooked in the dental department. Cleaning your dog’s teeth is just as important for their health as it is for ours! Dogs are susceptible to illnesses such as kidney disease if a gum infection goes unnoticed. There are several signs to look for to know if your dog might be suffering from dental disease including:

·      Yellow, plaque buildup along the gum line

·      Bad breath
