We all sadly continue to see dogs being relinquished to rescues & shelters for "nipping" or "biting" a child.

More often than not, these incidents could have been avoided by educating children to never disturb dogs that are sleeping. Common scenarios: Child went to cozy up to the dog or a child crawled into the dog crate while the dog was asleep, these are recipes for disaster.

Dogs will become startled if awoken and nip children as a result. Explain to children that dogs should have plenty of space while taking naps, and that they should never wake up a sleeping dog.

For more quick safety tips relating to dogs & children, check out a previous post (link below).

We love our kids and our dogs, it is possible to have both with proper education, introductions, boundaries and supervision.

DOG DAYS are upon us! The countdown has begun to the 4th of July! Our busiest day and weekend of the year for lost dogs. Many of you have already experienced memorial day fireworks in your areas and we are already seeing lots of dogs loose.

NOW is the time to do your part. See below for a few of the most important tips to follow. NOW is the time to get those collars on, NOW is the time to get your tags on with current numbers and NOW is the time to get your microchips updated. Also, call in your prescriptions soon for meds if thats what your dog needs during the night of the 4th.

Make sure your RELIABLE dog sitters are dialed in if you are going to need one.
CHECK all your gate locks and fencing now to make sure they are secure as even the dogs who normally won't jump, dig or climb or leave a back yard, WILL GET OUT during fireworks if left with access to the yard.

For those of you with local missing pet/lost pet pages in your cities, please be sure to contact those pages directly with any lost or found dogs the day and night of the 4th that you may find. This will help owners and rescuers and the shelters.

The shelter intakes and resources will be MAXED! Anything you can do to help a found dog by posting them on a missing pet page, getting them scanned for a chip, putting up a hand written found flyer in the area and holding onto them for a bit would help the Shelters, help the Dogs and the Search and Rescue Teams.
Thank you!!!

When you are fostering or adopting a rescue dog consider it much the same as a child who has come from the foster care system. They have been through hell as a child, so has the dog you have just taken in. They lost everything they knew was theirs, just like the dog you have taken in. They need to be tucked close under your wing and supervised, just like the dog you took in. They need guidance and structure, just like the dog you took in. They may strike out and test their boundaries, just like the dog you took in. But in the end they want love and give love, just like the dog you took in
They are your family and so is that dog !

SANTA BARBARA FOSTER REQUEST:

Is anyone able to foster an adorable senior Maltese mix? She needs an emergency foster while her homeless owner receives medical treatment. She will do best in a home without children. Though she does fine with most other dogs, a proper introduction is required. She is very sweet when she warms up to you, but needs a little time. We would like to be able to take the sweet girl to see her owner periodically while he’s at the hospital so we are looking for a foster in the Santa Barbara area to best accommodate.

Please email [email protected] if you are interested in fostering and helping out. Thank you!

How You Can Protect Your Dog & Cat From Coyotes

We're seeing more posts about coyotes in Santa Barbara, including city limits. With their habitats and food sources shrinking, coyotes are venturing closer to our neighborhoods and homes. Our cats and dogs can make an easy meal for these canine natives. Here are some ways you can protect your dog from coyote attacks, both at home and while you’re out enjoying nature.

Don’t Leave Your Small Dog Outside Unsupervised Day or Night
If you’re not around to keep an eye on your dog, it’s best to leave him indoors where a coyote can’t get him, especially if you don’t have good fencing.

Coyote-Proof Fencing
Speaking of fencing, you should invest in one that’s solid, at least 6-feet tall, and buried in the ground at least 18 inches, since coyotes are amazing diggers. At the top, you need to put something that will stop even the most athletic coyote. This could be barbed wire or a tube of PVC pipe (its slick, round shape makes it almost impossible for a coyote to grip). You can also create an overhang on the outside of the fence. Finally, you can install coyote rollers, which are 4-foot aluminum rods that spin when a coyote tries to grip them, preventing an animal from climbing over. And unlike barbed wire or PVC pipe, coyote rollers aren’t ugly to look at and are usually accepted by homeowners’ associations.

NEVER intentionally feed a coyote.

Don’t keep pet food outside.

If you have fruit trees, pick up fallen fruit so as to not let it rot on the ground. Coyotes are very opportunistic feeders.

Light up Your Yard at Night
Another backyard tip is to install motion-sensor lights that are pointed outside your fence line. That way, if a coyote does come around, the light will turn on before he gets into your yard. The light will make most coyotes turn back.

Pick up P**p
Your dog’s f***s can attract coyotes to your property, so keeping your yard or fields clear of p**p can help lower the risk of attracting one. They will also eat fallen fruit, so picking up any windfalls is a good idea. Don’t leave trash outside in bags and make sure all garbage can lids are secure and cannot be tipped over.

Coyote Vests
Coyote vests are made for small dogs and have a Kevlar neck collar armed with 1-inch spikes and spikes down the back, making it hard for coyotes to get a bite. If you have a small dog, these vests may provide good protection in coyote country.

Coyote Protection on Walks
The coyote vest mentioned above is great for your dog to wear on a walk if you’re in an area where you might encounter one. Keeping your dog on leash is also safer, since most coyotes are wary of people and won’t attack your dog if he’s close to you. Bringing something along that makes a loud noise — a whistle, bell, horn, etc. — is another good way to scare off a lingering coyote.

Remember that even if coyotes don’t attack your dog, they carry and transmit many diseases and parasites, including rabies, distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, mange, fleas, worms, and ticks. So, keeping them out of your neighborhood is something that should be on everyone’s radar. Neighbors should always post coyote sightings. Together, you can keep your dogs (and other pets) safe.

Don’t become indifferent… if you see a coyote in your yard or neighborhood ALWAYS haze them away. Do so completely, and remind your neighbors of the importance of doing the same.

Keep cats indoors. Always is safest, but at least between the dusk and dawn hours (when coyotes tend to be most active).

Yes, coyotes are an important part of the ecosystems they inhabit, But when you start seeing them in your yard, on your street, or generally in your neighborhood — it does make one think about their presence just a little bit more.

Who else was taught to always offer their hand to strange dogs before petting them? 🤚
Although the intention behind this idea is good, it’s actually bad information that can result in serious consequences. Why?

❌ dogs have very powerful senses of smell. If they can smell cancer inside someone’s body, they can smell your child from a few feet away.
❌ if a dog is nervous to meet you, sticking a hand out may be what pushes them over the edge. If they feel the need to escalate to biting, an outreached hand is a very easy target.

So what should you teach kids to do instead?
✅ learn about dog body language so that you can teach them what a relaxed and friendly dog looks like
✅ when they see a dog with friendly body language, teach them to “be a tree” and wait for the dog to approach them first
✅ if they begin petting a dog, teach them to do a consent check after the first few pets: stop petting and see if the dog solicits more. This is a great way to teach your child about their own bodily autonomy too!
✅ if it’s a dog they’ll be seeing often or living with, teach them hands-off ways to train or play with the dog

We often carry the lessons learned in childhood throughout our adult life. Let’s make them safe ones!

Getting that someone special a puppy or a kitten for Christmas?

While we always want homeless pets to find a good, loving home, we want them to stay in that home for the rest of their lives!

Having a pet is a 10-15 year commitment (or more!) It is for the lifetime of that animal, and not just until the newness wears off, or when they start demonstrating certain bad behaviors, or especially when they get too old.

Also, don’t surprise someone with a new pet if they may not be ready or even want that pet. Surprises are great, but it’s best to make sure the person even wants the pet before you give it as a gift! It’s not about you or potentially ruining the surprise. It’s about the life of that animal.

Adopt responsibly. Merry Christmas. 🎄🐾♥️🎅🏽

This Giving Tuesday, please help us deliver the promise of hope to the dogs who need it most!

I think I speak for everyone in the animal rescue world when I say that these past months have been overwhelming. The need in our community has grown to the point that it feels like we are trying to fight a wildfire with a bucket of water.

In less than a month, we have taken in 7 animals (5 dogs and 2 pigs) whose owners passed away. Two of the dogs have found homes already but one of them - Stella - needed life-saving surgery and ongoing treatment for a malignant tumor on her foot. While many orgs would have turned away from this dog because of the high cost of medical care, we know that this squishy little 8 year old has alot of life and love left. We found her perfect home and she will live out her days loved and cared for but we have committed to seeing her through her surgery and cancer treatments.

Another of those dogs, Buddha, who was living alone for months in his back yard after his owner passed, is happy as a clam here at the sanctuary - but he too has a tumor on one of his toes that must be surgically removed.

Delilah was 1 of 5 puppies that Shadow's Fund took in from a neglectful situation. All of the puppies were adopted into loving homes and Delilah is with an amazing foster to adopt home. She has 2 blown cruciate ligaments which will require back to back surgeries, each costing upwards $6000.

Friends, we don't turn away from the tough cases. In fact, we're kind of the last best hope for all the dogs that no one else can or will help. And that is exactly what we set out to be. We want to be a light in the darkness for the dog that has no reason to hope; the dog that has been failed so many times they have all but stopped trying. We have spent the last l2 years doing that and building a sanctuary that provides a home for these dogs, and we've only done that because you have always been there for us. YOU made it possible to deliver the promise.

So on this Giving Tuesday, we are humbly asking once again for your help. We are looking at well over $20,000 in medical costs alone for some of the dogs we recently said "yes" to. And we still have 60 animals at the sanctuary who need us every day. Please consider a donation to Shadow's Fund this year. Your support will save or change a life. Thank you!
