A really lovely day with friends old & new at the Rescue Barn yesterday. Photographer Jesse Frieden told us about the inspirations behind the creation of Finding Shelter - a book that highlights shelter volunteers around the country. Our dogs are howling with thanks today for all the treats and toys attendees brought with them - Thank you!

EGGHEAD LOVERS UNITE!

Science ROCKS because it's improved our understanding of dogs and shown us that a dog's behavior cannot be predetermined by breed type - and so much more. Science also wants to us to protect our Mother, because she's taking a beating right now.

For DOG SCIENCE visit National Canine Research Council and study their fascinating website: [ Nationalcanineresearchcouncil.com...

Here's the thing: You've fallen on hard times, you're in between homes and your dog is very ill. You spend a few frantic hours looking for help and by the time you find it, it's too late. Ceasar died despite his person's best efforts, and the best we could do for them was offer a humane euthanasia. Then, the difficult realization that the dog you loved is going to be landfilled with untold...

With a mix of sadness, love and deep gratitude for changing our world for the better, we're sharing news that 'Teddles' recently passed away, 10 years after he was rescued from Bad Newz Kennels. Please send your thoughts to his wonderful adopter Cindy Houser and her family. They did him proud every step of the way.

Zilla says: Check me out. This is what 'ADOPTED' looks like. :-)

Our dogs go home under foster/adopt contracts until everybody is communicating well and so comfortable with each other that full adoption is a no-brainer. Good work Ileana and Tommy. You're true blue blocky dog owners now!

Faces from April's Owner Support event in Livermore, CA.

Livermore is on the eastern edge of BADRAP's home county. It looks very rural compared to the urban landscape of our usual outreach locations. As everywhere in the SF Bay Area, blocky dogs are exceedingly popular, and it's very easy to find families who are eager to show off their pups and grateful for low/no cost resources and support.

For every dog in-crisis who ends up at an animal shelter, there are many more who luck into new homes by a small twist of fate. Tino is one of those dogs.

His first family lost their home to foreclosure - a common reason our shelters are so full. They secured a pet-friendly apartment and everything seemed set, but when they were ready to move in, they learned that their lease had small print:...

That tongue that says, "Oh no, please not again!"

Elliot seems to find Hank irresistible and has been trying to sneak in a bit of enthusiastic humping, but thankfully Hank finally told him off for it. Geez - Sorry about the rudeness, Hank! We're not sure wassup with our typically genteel dog.

Thanks for all the good gab about dog tolerance levels and dog parks today. In light of our convos, we're reposting this vid so it lives here on this page. ***Did you know that Dog Social adult dogs (ie dog park candidates) are NOT the norm? Most mature dogs lose tolerance for dog shenanigans as they mature, so giving up dog parks for other healthier forms of play tends to be a K9 Rite of Passage.

Here's a kicker: Three out of every four adoption applications we receive come from homes who want 'dog park dogs.' The demand for dog social dogs is so big that some of our local shelters make life/death decisions based solely on a dog's performance in play groups. Equally, dogs who are returned to shelters after getting into spats with other dogs are typically euthanized.

What are your...
