Purebred or mixed breed?

Current U.S. presidential debates have temporarily set our country ablaze and left citizens two very opposite and unique candidates to choose from this November election. Meanwhile, in the doggy world, another debate continues amongst dog lovers: purebred or mutt?

You may have heard people casually comment that “purebreds have more health problems,” or that mutts “are unpredictable.” Data presented in 2015 by The Institute of Canine Biology sought to put an end to the arguments by providing statistics and research on this very subject.

What are your plans this Sunday, October 9th? If the answer is, "Nothing", then do we have an event for you. From 11am-4pm visit Hart Park in Newhall, CA and meet all of the adoptable dogs and cats from local shelters and non-profit organizations. There will also be a low cost vaccination clinic, dog show, raffle opportunities, vendors, and food trucks. It is free to attend. Spread the word so that all your friends and family can have a great time and adoptable dogs and cats can find their furever homes.

thank you handson santa clarita

Sentimental Saturday? Better late than never, we wanted to give a huge tail-wagging THANK YOU to HandsOn Santa Clarita for choosing New Leash On Life as part of their 9/11 Day of Service. Volunteers cleaned our three-story building, reinforced or replaced roofing tiles, mended fencing, and organized our garage and storage unit. Amazing! We are so proud to have HandsOn as a valuable partner in our volunteer program.
