Even a small contribution goes a long way … all of our dogs and cats live in very comfortable surroundings, we feed them high-quality food (Kirkland Premium), they are all spayed, neutered, and vaccinated, and receive monthly flea control, and parasitic treatment. Enrichment includes petting and grooming, daily walks plus free reign in the grassed and fenced playground as well as going 3-5 times a week for an off-leash run in a nearby beautiful coffee farm and of course on-going training (clicker method). We schedule varied play activities with the dogs which consist of games of fetch, tug, seeking games (nose work), large ball play, etc. The dogs play one-on-one with humans and also get plenty of play time with each other. Our dogs also get stuffed Kongs, rawhide chews, and food-puzzle toys to entertain themselves while in their runs.
Our full time staff member Ronaldo Aspuac Zamora spends each day with our dogs, and is in charge of cleaning runs and play areas, daily walking, bathing and grooming, training and play. He makes sure that each dog gets attention, training, and the love that it deserves.
