New Leash On Life staff cannot say enough good things about Team SCV volunteers. Not only were they courteous and thorough, you could tell that they LOVE all dogs. On Saturday they put up Halloween decorations, cleaned our facility and outside pens, and socialized with our adoptable rescue dog, Kane. It was a great morning and we can't wait to see them all again.
Snowcone has been anxiously waiting for the fall weather, and she is still waiting to meet her forever family. New Leash On Life rescued her from a public adoption event during a hot, summer weekend. Even though she has been here since May, she remains playful and sweet. She loves her toys and is very well mannered in a crate and on car rides. Best of all she is kid and dog-friendly!

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.
Great news for anyone who was planning on donating to our Strut Your Mutt fundraiser - now through October 9th, every day that New Leash On Life raises at least $9, we will be entered into a drawing for a $500 Visa gift card.
Even though we have already reached our fundraising goal, every bit helps to save more animals. Together, we can Save Them All!
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.
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.
