The men of the Paws for Life program volunteered to help the West Valley Shelter in Chatsworth by taking in twenty-one dogs effected by the Woolsey wild fires. Since the fires began, the fifty-nine men that make up the program are up at dawn each day wrapped in bright orange CDCR foul weather coats. The men are eager to lend a helping hand by feeding, walking and comforting the frighten dogs.
While tending to Misty, an adorable terrier mix, PFL trainer Curtis Loftis remarked, “I’ll never get tired of caring for these dogs they have so much spirit and life.”
A number of the West Valley dogs have lived inside the shelter for months. Louie Brash, another PFL trainer, laying inside a doggy crate with a handsome tri-colored terrier named Hennessey reflects: “you can tell this is the most physical contact he’s had in a long time, it’s like he forgot what it’s like to be touched.”
There are currently forty dogs being cared for in the Paws for Life K9 Rescue program that are in need of a loving family. Our prayers are with everyone effected by the Woolsey fire.
