She was breaking our hearts💔

Gentle Diamond was having a tough time in the kennels. Despite a Kuranda bed & cozy blanket she was not able to rest easy, unable to settle, often too scared to move. When she was feeling brave and with loving encouragement from staff and volunteers we’d give her as much out of cage time as possible (in the real room environment she blossomed!) but when it was time to go back to her kennel she would plop. Then once in her cage she could not relax. (Just look at her kennel face, we could cry🥺)

ACA Sierra knew there had to be a way to help our girl feel more comfortable. She came up with adding a crate to her kennel. Diamond immediately found refuge & a safe cozy spot to decompress when caged. What a difference this simple solution has made for her while she waits for her forever home! Bravo to ACA Sierra who goes above & beyond for Agoura’s homeless pets! 👏🏻🫶🏻🙌🏻

Diamond would truly benefit trading the Care Center kennels for a loving home. Best family would be one with middle school aged kids or older, a large dog companion would be ideal.

The Agoura Animal Care Center is open 11-5 Monday to Saturday. Closed Sunday. Diamond looks forward to meeting her new family!🙏

Sweet treats for homeless pets!💗

We had a lovely visit with Alpha Phi sorority from Pepperdine University who along with their mentor & alumni Agoura Volunteer Kate chose as one of their service projects to treat Agoura’s homeless pups with delicious homemade cookies! Baked with love the special blend included sweet potato or mashed banana as a base, chopped blueberries and cranberries, and peanut butter. Needless to say the pups LOVED every morsel!👅😁

A big bow wow thank you to the ladies of Alpha Phi sorority for their thoughtfulness & baked with love sweet treats from Agoura’s homeless pups!👏🏻❤️👏🏻🐶

Paisley was transferred to us when she wasn’t adopted at the Best Friends event. Her new family had met her previously, when they heard she was at Agoura they drove right over to adopt our girl!🚙👏🏻

A bit hesitant about getting into their van she luckily had volunteers Mark and Emily who eased her in with loving encouragement.⬅️❤️Our volunteers are the best, always going above & beyond for our pups!👏🏻

Found…her true personality revealed!😻

This spicy tabby still had her harness on when she arrived as a stray. Very unhappy to be with us, we gave her space and a privacy curtain to help her to acclimate to the sights, sounds, & smells of the kennels. We were prepared to work with her once off her stray period, we know intake behavior isn’t always reflective of who an animal really is.

Fortunately she wasn’t with us long when her pawparents found their girl safe at Agoura, her true personality quickly revealed once in Dad’s arms!

From new volunteer Spandana: “When the cat saw her owners, you could tell she was so happy. The spicy tabby’s name is Glenda and her owners were very happy to see her! She was so docile and sweet with them.”🥰

It was wonderful for us to see what a sweet girl Glenda truly was once her pawparents arrived, we couldn’t be happier to see her re-united with her Mom & Dad! 👏🏻❤️🐾

Oh how we love when a homeless kitten becomes an adopted spoiled kitten!👏🏻😻

Our little Reese initially came to us via her very pregnant kitty Mama who gave birth while in foster care with Cat Volunteer Sherry. The last of her litter sibs to be adopted but well worth the wait…just look at her now hanging in her very own kitty tent with her new name affixed…Tiger Lily!😻

A kittygram from her new Mom:
“She’s healing nicely from her spay and is such a puuuurfect daughter! She’s amazing! 😻 She has been the biggest cuddle bug! She has been sleeping on my face, head, pillow or in my arms & has been nonstop purring! She has become fast friends with the roomba and is already so spoiled!”

And we couldn’t love receiving this note and photo more! We have no doubt Tiger Lily will have a very happy life!!!❤️🐾

Nusky is healing hearts!🥹💕

Her beloved pup had recently passed away.💔Stopping by Agoura she watched one of our volunteers play with Nusky and after meeting her brought her pup Mina in for an intro twice to assure good fit. Adopted!!👏🏻

Pupdate from her new Mama: “Oh my goodness! She has brought so much love and light into our lives. Mina loves her already! Nusky is sweet and playful and loves to fetch and catch. Nusky slept well last night, is eating and drinking very well & is housebroken! I can actually feed she and Mina together! Nusky is afraid of the TV and her reflection in the stove but she is excited for her new home. And we are excited to have her! Thank you ALL so much for Nusky! We cannot thank you enough for helping to mend our broken Hearts.
Sincerely Paula.”

We are so happy to hear our girl Nusky is fitting in so well & healing hearts both doggie & human…wishing the entire family continued happiness!❤️🐾

💔🥺😭

On Wednesday night our precious Dallas did not seem to be himself with tummy issues and not eating. Officer Rodney took our boy to and when typical meds to settle his stomach did not give him relief an x-ray on Thursday revealed he had cancer of the spleen that had spread to his chest.💔Humane euthanasia was recommended.🥺Yesterday with Volunteer Tamy & the Oaks team by his side our precious boy laid down next to Tamy, put his head on Tamy’s lap, and gently crossed over the rainbow bridge.🌈💔

From Tamy to our volunteers: “Sweet Dallas crossed the rainbow bridge while laying on my lap receiving all the love he could have from me and all of you. I know you all loved him so much and I’d like to think that our sweet boy is now reunited with his beloved person getting all the treats his precious heart desires.
He will be terribly missed…”

10 year old Dallas was originally adopted from Agoura in 2016 to a wonderful home. Tragically his human passed away, Dallas stayed by her side until he and his person were discovered.💔 😔 He was then turned into us in August of this year.

We adored our talkative boy (he always had something to say;) he loved balls, water, walks, real room snuggles, and his shelter care givers.

Collectively we are beyond devastated and heartbroken but are grateful his last days were filled with constant love & attention by those who adored him as he waited for what we hoped would be the gift of a forever home.

From Volunteer Michael: “Just a quick note to mention that I was in the real room with Dallas Wed morning, he was very happy to spend time receiving pets and relaxing on the couch. He was tail wagging and playful and gave his usual barking a rest while he enjoyed the attention. I can’t think of a better person than Tamy to see our boy off, and just wanted you all to know that Dallas had some very happy minutes in that wonderful room on his last day with us.”❤️

Rest in Pease sweet Dallas-we will always hold you in our hearts.❤️

It is said a dragonfly flying near brings transformation, change, new beginnings, or fresh starts. We like to think this beautiful insect landing on Mia’s cage is a hopeful sign that her forever family is soon to come!🙏

Mia is looking for a home with middle school age children or older where she can be the one & only fur face in the household.

To meet dragonfly blessed Mia please visit us from 11-5 Monday to Saturday.

🥹Get your tissues please…

He came in as a puppy, growing up in cages, having been in LA County Care Centers continually overlooked for over 500 days. He was deeply loved by volunteers & staff who always had his back where ever he was in the shelter system. Once transferred to Agoura he had a strong & loving advocate in ACA Sierra who worked relentlessly to find him an option.

Then a miracle….ochs heard her plea and pulled our boy! We are beyond grateful and in puddles of tears🥹 to see at long last Echo has a home! Here’s to a happy well deserved life for our sweet boy with his new Mom & Dad!!!🥹👏🏻❤️🐾
And thank you .ochs for being the rescue angels😇Echo needed for his second chance! We are beyond grateful!❤️🥹

Handsome 8 year old Gunther will be Pet of the Week today on ! Please tune in around 11:30ish to see Volunteer Tamy and our brown eyed boy…such a sweet face!🥰🎥📺

Gunther began his shelter journey in Baldwin Park, then was transferred to Castaic, then transferred to Agoura. Crossing paws someone out there in TV land will realize Gunther is their perfect match!🙏

Thanks KABC, we appreciate the opportunity to showcase our boy!

✔️Gunther is recommended for a home with middle school aged children & up, a calm big dog companion would be ideal. (no small animals pls)

Sometimes it’s a long road to a forever home…🛣️

7 year old Bella has been with us 3 times by no fault of her own. From her original turn in to Agoura she was returned twice. First home her person was arrested, back to our loving arms she came.
Then adopted again only to have a small but mighty pup decide she wasn’t welcome to be part of their pack, back to us again.

Through it all Bella remained a happy, playful pup sharing yard time in play group with other Agoura fur faces, happily lounging with a stuffie (a hippo of course being our velvet hippo’s favorite!🦛), or adoring her many volunteer & staff care givers. Never down, she was always up for whatever came next!💖

And then…recently she began to have visits from the same gentleman over a period of a few days. He could see how loved Bella was by staff & volunteers.

And then it happened✨, this lovely man decided our girl was his perfect match! Now in her 4th home we are crossing every paw that our sweet velvet hippo, land seal, & all around good girl is at long last in her forever home! Hooray for Bella who jumped right in to her new Dad’s car on her way to a very happy life!🙏🏠🚘❤️🐾

Our hearts break for Diamond 💔
2 1/2 year old Diamond came to us from after we heard she was a helper dog assessing the new pups coming in. Diamond has been an absolute gem but recently she’s started deteriorating in her kennel.
She doesn’t want to come out most of the time, she’s been barking at the public that have stopped at her kennel or in the yard. She’s such a love when she’s in with us, we know someone out there that understands shepherds is out there. Diamond is the best girl, loves dogs and will be fiercely loyal to her new family.

Check out our boy! Looking for a home 🙏🏼
Beyond grateful to Oregon Coast Humane Society for taking our sweet boy under their wing and helping him flourish!

Happy Howl-oween!!
Have you had the pleasure to meet Echo?

Echo arrived at OCHS after 487 days in a California shelter. This young dog has literally grown up in the shelter system. He was adopted twice in California and returned because he didn't know how to live in a home - but with help, he will. We're looking for a patient adopter who'll meet Echo on his terms and teach him how great life can be. Echo was a Playgroup Ambassador in California, making other dogs feel comfortable during their shelter stay, so he's great with other dogs. Now it's Echo's turn to find a dog to make him feel comfortable - in a home!
We believe would do GREAT in a home with a confident, friendly dog to teach him the ways of living in a home. If you're ready to meet Echo, stop by the shelter at 2840 Rhododendron Drive, Florence OR 97439 or apply to adopt him online at www.oregoncoasthumanesociety.org.

We welcomed sweet Kayla to the Agoura Pack from
ACA Sierra met Kayla at the event and wanted to bring her back to us but there was a few hiccups.. we just couldn’t stop thinking about her so she hitched a ride along with some Downey cats!!
While she did AMAZING at the event with people of all sizes and ages, we discovered at the event that she doesn’t enjoy being teased with food (she’s a foodie, of course we love her). However, she takes treats from you LOVELY and enjoys showing off with some tricks to get a snack.
Kayla would much rather be left alone when eating, therefore she’s looking for an adult only home, and if there is another dog, she would prefer a calmer pal.
If you’re interested in meeting this petite (36.4lbs), softer than soft gal, please stop by!
