workshops to look at how the city shelters can achieve a "no-kill" policy
The L.A. Department of Animal Services on Wed. evening is holding the first of 11 scheduled workshops to look at how the city shelters can achieve a "no kill" policy. All meetings are open to the public. (Locations and times are below.) Every municipal animal shelter wants to arrive at a "no-kill" policy. Essentially, that means that no healthy animals -- like the young pooches pictured above in the city's South L.A. shelter in Jan. -- will be euthanized for lack of space. Being able to do that is a challenge. The Humane L.A. Workshops will look at what is being done and what could be done better. "We want to get input from stakeholders in our community," says Animal Services general manager Ed Boks, who will attend the Wed. workshop. The first meeting is the High Volume/Low-Cost Spay/Neuter Workshop, focusing on that topic and its effect on the goal of no-kill. It is scheduled to be hosted by Councilman Bernard Parks. Also expected, in addition to Boks, are Teri Austin of the Amanda Foundation and Judie Mancuso, the director of Calif. Healthy Pets, the campaign to get the Calif. spay/neuter bill, A.B. 1634, passed. The location is the Constituent Service Center, 8475 S. Vermont Ave. (near Manchester), Los Angeles. Time: 6:30 p.m. - Carla Hall. View article

haute dogs will get a small percentage of every dollar you spend at Ralph's, if you register your ralph's card
New Ralphs Rewards Card program can benefit Justin's nonprofit 501c3 Community Action Team (C.A.T.)/HauteDogs/Operation Santa Paws. As most of you probably know, Ralphs recently launched its new ‘Ralphs Rewards' program. All customers will complete a new application and receive a new card the next time they go shopping at Ralphs. As long as you LINK your previously enrolled Ralphs Club Card with your new Ralphs Rewards Card, Ralphs' participation with CAT/HauteDogs/etc. will continue without change. As a confirmation point, everyone will still see the HauteDogs/Operation Santa Paws contribution note at the bottom of their receipt. (It may take up to a month for the link to take effect.) If you did not link their two cards together when they received their new Rewards Card, you must go online at www.ralphs.com/ccprogram.htm to enroll their new Ralphs Rewards Card with us. Our NPO (nonprofit) number is 80230.

shelters that foster pets
Awhile back a friend of mine emailed information for No Paws Left Behind, a non-profit organization that solely focuses on the welfare of the silent victims of foreclosure, our pets. Out of all the foreclosure Web sites I've come across, this one seems to be the most comprehensive. If you can't find an interim place for your pet, click the link to find a foster shelter. There are all kinds within a 60 mile radius of the San Fernando Valley. Just punch in your zip code. View article
