Home

One of the most unfortunate situations that affects many shelter animals an unstable home life. While divorce is difficult for the humans involved, it can be absolutely earth-shattering for the animals whose home becomes broken. This is what happened to Chihuahua mixes Lily and Cody, a bonded pair who came to be in an animal shelter as a result of an unfortunate home split. These two pups are now awaiting adoption at an animal shelter in Seal Beach, CA.LilyLily and Cody

Both dogs are incredibly sweet and well-mannered,  and would make great companion animals in a loving home.  Lily and Cody would do very well in a calm, loving, and safe home preferably with older children or adults. Unstable relationships need not apply 🙂

Lily and Cody are both under 6 lb, so their combined weight is the equivalent of one small dog. Their size makes them perfect for traveling around with their owner, and both dogs very much enjoy car rides!

Chihuahuas originated in Mexico and are well loved companions. They were named after the Mexican state of Chihuahua, where the earliest specimens of the breed were discovered. As the smallest breed in the world, their weight ranges around 3 to 6 lbs and they also have one of the longest life spans of any dog breed, living often up to around 18 years of age. Good things come in small packages, and these little, furry packages will offer many years of love and devotion!

CodyChihuahuas are alert dogs with terrier-like qualities. They are good with families if the children are gentle and patient. Because of their small size, they require little exercise and are good city dogs, but can be sensitive to cold temperatures. He can also thrive with activities in rural environments because of his hardiness. The Chihuahua is highly intelligent. Obedience training should be considered to ensure he becomes a well-behaved companion.

October Cars, Volkswagen Edition

by Kathryne on October 19, 2017

October marks the start of a lot of good things. Leaves start turning orange and red, the weather becomes some of the loveliest of the year, pumpkin spice lattes and other decadent fall treats flood the market, and of course, Oktoberfest. The latter is the adult-only German festival that takes place every year in Germany featuring good brews, good food, and good times, yet those of us in the States are lucky enough to have also adopted this wonderful annual tradition. But Germany, also known for their stunningly designed and renowned automobiles, one-upped us by combining Oktoberfest with a classic car show.

While it isn’t exactly easy for us to pick up and join them for their brilliant celebration combination, which you can check out by following this link here, Recycler.com has decided to bring the classic car lovers and restoration visionaries a little glimpse into some of the German classics available in our classifieds this month. More specifically, we are looking at a few classic Volkswagens.Karmann Ghia

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.

To see Jasmine’s ad on the Recycler.com, please follow this link to Jasmine’s Ad, where you can find more information on where to find this little girl and how you can set up a meeting.

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:

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

Dog-Treats-1

INSTRUCTIONS

  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).
NOTES FROM THE AUTHOR
“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

slater1

 

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.
