For any experienced pet owner, the 4th of July can be a day of unbelievable stress for furry friends. While some of our furry friends can enjoy the fireworks display with us unphased, others endure a night of sheer terror. Jasmine — an elderly chihuahua mix — this holiday was especially harsh.

Jasmine 1

Yet unfortunately for Jasmine, the fireworks were the least of her problems this Independence Day. Jasmine was brought to a shelter on the 4th of July after teenagers had found her left to die on an old chair under a bypass off of the freeway. Jasmine is a senior and had somehow stumbled on to the path of an oncoming vehicle. While she was rushed to Newport Veterinary Hospital where the staff nursed her back to health, this poor baby has had a complete overhaul – dental and all.

This sweet girl has faced abandonment, being hit by a car, and extensive medical treatment, but she is a survivor. This is a dog who has earned her right to live out the rest of her days in the company of a caring, loving home and would make a great addition to a family who can giver her love and a quiet place for naps. Jasmine is a quiet yet adventurous senior, she loves a walk, to lay in the sun, or simply curl up on a bed and enjoy peace and quiet in her senior years.

Jasmine 2

Senior dogs tend to be overlooked in shelters because they are not as “cute” at first glance as a puppy or younger dog, but while their hair may be gray and their bodies old, senior dogs have a heart of gold. Jasmine is no exception.

Cute-As-A-Button Blaire

by Kathryne on March 30, 2017

blair 1

You have to admit, anything that cute is hard to resist.

Blair was brought into the shelter (BARC) in June 2016 with a gunshot wound to her front right leg. It just so happened another volunteer was there picking up another dog (Cecil), and the rescue couldn’t leave without her. Blair is around a year old and weighs just 20 lbs.

Blair was severely anemic and running a high fever. She was rushed to the vet where she needed an immediate blood transfusion. Her leg was fractured where the bullet passed through. Blair had surgery to remove the bone fragments and then a hard cast on her leg for the next month. We feared she would have nerve damage to her foot, but she has recovered like a champ!

Thanks to a wonderful foster home, she is now a happy and adorable girl, who is ready to find her happy forever.

Blair was rescued on the same day as Cecil, who had extensive injuries from being hit by a car. They have become very close recovering together in their foster home! (https://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/36768321) Ideally, the shelter is looking for the perfect home that will adopt and love both of them. If you have room for double the love, please email adopt@redcollar.org.

Homemade Dog Biscuits Recipe

by Kathryne on March 23, 2017

Have you ever wanted to try making your dog treats from your own kitchen but were intimidated to try it? Well don’t be! Making treats at home for your pup is not only super easy, but also a ton of fun! This recipe was found on a blog called Pinch of Yum (link to original post can be found here), but the simplicity and beauty of these dog biscuits were so awesome we had to share them. Also, making treats at home also guarantees that no nasty, unwanted ingredients get fed to your dog without you knowing, so Fido can enjoy his fresh-off-the-oven, homemade cookie that is both safe and healthy.Dog-Treats-2

Just look at these beauties! Don’t you almost want to try one, too?

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

Dog biscuits:
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 2 eggs
  • ¼ cup oil*
  • 2½ cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons bacon grease, melted
  • ¼ cup smooth peanut butter



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine pumpkin, peanut butter, eggs, and oil in a bowl. Add in baking soda and whole wheat flour. Stir until a stiff dough forms. Knead dough or mix just until flour is incorporated.
  3. Roll out dough with a rolling pin and use a cookie cutter to cut out dog bone shapes, or just bake into little circles like cookies. Bake for 15 minutes.
  4. Whisk the bacon grease and peanut butter until very smooth. Drizzle over the treats and cool till glaze hardens (it does best in the fridge or freezer).
“We just used a basic canola oil, but we also give Sage coconut oil for her fur/skin, and I think coconut oil would work nicely here. You can also use coconut oil in place of the bacon grease in the glaze, but, I mean, come on. It’s bacon grease. SO YUMMY.”
There’s also a great video you can check out on the making of these pooch-approved works of art:

Happy Baking!



Slater: the Total K9 Package

by Kathryne on March 19, 2017



As if that face wasn’t enough, this handsome boy has a winning personality to boot!

Slater is a 4 year old male golden retriever mix. He is a larger sized dog, weighing about 70 lbs. Yet Slater is a quiet, introspective kind of pooch who is a little shy whenever he meets someone new, but as soon as he gets to know and trust someone, he will be their new best friend for life! In his current foster home he is quite the snuggler, and is overall a very quiet and gentle dog. He is also extremely friendly with other dogs and loves to play with his K9 foster siblings, as you can see in the video below.

This handsome devil had a little bit of a rough start in life. He was living on the streets before he ended up at the city pound. Thankfully, he was saved by Red Collar Rescue and found safety.slater2

Hi, I’m Slater! Don’t you think I’m gorgeous? I had a bit of a rough time living on the streets, and did not like being at the city pound either. Luckily, Red Collar Rescue saved me and got me out of the pound to safety!


I can’t wait to meet my new forever family! Contact info@redcollar.org to get it started.

Rex, Roxie rexand Bastit are 3 adoptable dogs (of thousands) whose profiles are visible from our website.

This handsome boy to the left is Rex from Ojai, California. This boy arrived at the shelter at the beginning of December. He was very thin and unsure of his new surroundings, but quickly improved with the love and care from staff and volunteers. Rex is now looking and feeling great and ready for his forever home! The shelter he is at is still getting to know this charming guy and will keep everyone updated when they learn more.

Roxie is a very sweet girl from West Covina, CA. She is a chihuahua mix who is smaller in stature for those with limited space or prefer smaller dogs. What makes Roxie unique is that she is a young dog with a very sweet dispostion. She loves other dogs and does really well with children! She would make a great addition to a family with kids, other pets, or for someone who sees themselves taking their social pup out to the park frequently.

Lastly we have Bastit, the stunning black and white beauty. A boxer – American Staffordshire Terrier mix, you can tell just from her photo that this girl is 100% athlete. Named after the ancient Egyptian cat, this sleek beauty will turn heads. Still young (approx. 2 years old) and is small for her breed but she is mighty in stature. She is full of energy and will bastitrequire someone who is familiar with the power breeds. Despite her high energy, Bastit is still very puppy-like and loves to play with toys. But her favorite thing in the entire world is cuddle in everyone’s lap. Bastit is a VERY VERY affectionate dog…as long as you don’t have a tail to wag or bark at her. She is very dog aggressive and cannot be adopted into a home with any existing dogs.

If you are an experienced owner who can provide Bastit with the environment she needs, you can see her ad here.
