National Pet Food Drive

Thursday, July 19th, 2012

Feeding Pets of the Homeless is a wonderful organization that we support.  We collect recyclables and food donations for them.  All of the items and money we collect here are distributed locally to help both homeless animals and those that have very limited means.  There is a saying at Feeding Pets of the Homeless: Sometimes a 99 cent cheeseburger is a meal for two.  We are happy to be able to support them during the year, but there is a national push to really bulk up on the collection of food for the summer.  Food can be in opened bags as well, so if you had something that wasn’t a good fit for your pup, please donate it instead of throwing it away!  We also have a donation box if you would prefer to donate cash instead of food.  These people can use all of the help they can get.

Check out their Flickr page for some photos showing who they are helping.

“Give a Dog a Bone”

Feeding Pets of the Homeless Leads National Pet Food Drive

The week of August 6-10 is the third National Feeding Pets of the Homeless “Give a Dog a Bone” Week.  Donations of pet food can be brought to Dogtopia of Temecula  at 27629 Commerce Center Drive.

Homelessness is on the rise and between 10-25% of homeless have pets in need of food. There are over 375 collection sites across America. Donations of pet food and supplies are received at member collection sites and distributed to food banks, soup kitchens, and homeless shelters which then give the pet food and supplies to their clients.
Genevieve Frederick, Founder of Pets of the Homeless said, “Since 2008, collection site members have taken over 124 tons of pet food and supplies to homeless shelters, food banks and soup kitchens across the country. Some of our volunteers take it to the streets where the homeless congregate. It is a combined effort to continue year-round collections of pet food. We applaud the caring, member sites who have reported their contributions. The need is great for communities to continue to donate to this on-going effort.”
As an outreach to the homeless who own pets, Pets of the Homeless, also uses cash donations to provide veterinary care to pets of the homeless at free wellness clinics as well as emergency veterinary care across the country.
“Most shelters do not allow animals, so rather than give up their beloved pets, many homeless stay on the streets.” Ms Frederick explained, “We provide pet sleeping crates, free of charge, to homeless shelters that allow refuge to the homeless with pets.”
Feeding Pets of the Homeless provides support to pet business owners who wish to give back to their community by becoming a member collection site. Helpful start-up information is available on the website.

Dogtopia supports the environment and Pets of the Homeless

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Dogtopia of Temecula (http://dogdaycare.com/temecula/) is pleased to announce that we are teaming up with Temecula Recycling (http://www.temecularecycling.com/) to collect recyclable materials.  All of the proceeds will benefit Pets of the Homeless (http://www.petsofthehomeless.org/), an organization that provides food and medical services to those that are unable to properly care for their pets.  Dogtopia is also a collection site for food, treats, and bedding for Pets of the Homeless.

From the Pets of the Homeless website:

Pets of the Homeless is a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides pet food and veterinary care to the homeless and less fortunate in local communities across the United States and Canada.  Our efforts have effects far beyond the care of the pets themselves.  Read the frequently asked questions (FAQ’s) for details.

  • graph_homeless_w_petsWhy?
    3.5 million* Americans are homeless. Between 5% to 10% of homeless people have dogs and/or cats. In some areas of the country the rate is as high as 24%.
  • Who?
    Each homeless person has a unique story; they are people with mental disorders, addicts, parolees, families, disabled, elderly, abused spouses, teens, and veterans.
  • How?
    Our member collection sites accept donated pet food from people like you.  They then deliver it to distributing organizations (food banks, homeless shelter and/or soups kitchens) which have agreed to distribute the pet food to the homeless and poor.

Dogtopia of Temecula is an open play dog daycare, boarding, and spa facility located at 27629 Commerce Center Drive, Temecula, CA 92590.  For more information, you can call Dogtopia at 951-506-1200.

Dog Vaccinations Article

Wednesday, December 14th, 2011

I was reading the Pet Boarding and Daycare magazine and there was a great article on vaccinations.  Vaccinations are a source of questions that we answer regularly.  The common misconception is that vaccinations are like immunization shots in people.  This is not really the case.  Many dog illnesses, such as Canine Cough, have many different strains and the vaccinations are not going to provide antibodies to all of them.  Pets that are current on all of their shots can still catch these illnesses, but they are typically less severe.  Think of the vaccinations like getting a flu shot.  You may not catch the flu this season, but if you do, it will typically be less severe than if you didn’t have the shot.

Another item that was mentioned is the need for proper cleaning to help prevent the spread of infections.  This is extremely true.  We perform deep cleaning twice a day at our facility to help control germs.  All of the surfaces are disinfected and the floor is mopped with a broad spectrum antibiotic.  There is always a chance of catching a “cold”, since dogs lick each other and play with their mouths, but we do everything possible to keep the facility as clean as a veterinarian’s office.

The full article can be found here: http://www.barkleigh.com/pbd/pbd_issue1/pdf/PET_BOARDING_DAYCARE_ISSUE_1.pdf and begins on page 13.

Dogtopia is a proud sponsor of the Murrieta Dog Park

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011

Dogtopia is pleased to announce that we will be the official waste bag sponsor of the new Murrieta Dog Park!  The park is set to open on Saturday November 19th at 10 AM.

Come join us for the fun and check out the brand new Dog Park (ok, there is a “regular” park too, but what fun is that?).  This is a dog friendly event and everyone is welcome to attend.  There will be several vendors at the event to welcome this needed addition to the City of Murrieta.  There will be items being given away and it should be a great event.

Be sure to  like us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, join our mailing list, and check out our website regularly to stay up to date on all of our activities.
