We Need Your Help! 
Youcaring Fundraiser
Help LBWF help the CA rescue dogs in the hot summer heat 

Thank you to everyone that has donated but we still need to finish the project for the rescue dogs. The horrific searing heat and humidity has hit California and the K-9 cottage is almost finished. We need to install the windows, air conditioner, insulation and shingles. We are so close; please won't you send your much needed donation to help us save so many California dogs in need. They were peoples' pets that never found their way home after the 4th of July and now they find themselves in our shelters on death row.  We have saved three more dogs this past week and have six more waiting
for the cottage to be finished. Please help us help these deserving pets that are dying in our shelters for no reason except lack of space.
Your love and support helped us plant shade trees nine years ago, buy baby pools each year for the dogs to cool off from the over 100 degree heat and they get love and playtime every day! We have the ability to save more lives but we need your help! Any amount  helps us to help them!
We have started a  YouCaring  fundraiser in order to raise funds. Please make a donation today. To make a donation to our fundraiser just click on the picture of the shed.
Many Thanks,
Linda Blair

Joe Perry

Joe Perry waited a whole year to find his forever loving home. He had an eye operation when he was still at the shelter and LBWF was the only one that would take him last year. We are so excited that he finally found his forever home. He was such a sweetheart and we are overjoyed on this lucky day! Your donations count and help us to save lives while they wait for their forever homes!

Pops

Everyone knows my love for the senior dogs. They are the best dogs, have great characters, and a great friendship. Our old timer, Pops found his forever loving home today with two of my best volunteers! We are so grateful to John and Carol for adopting Pops, the senior, into their forever loving home! Everyone should come volunteer and foster or adopt a dog. Our dogs are awesome. Thank you to everyone that has been stepping up in adopting and fostering for LBWF!

Many people consider adopting a dog but question: what if they want to save a dog’s life but don’t know where to begin and need expert advice? What must they do to integrate the new pet into their home?
Enter Diane Rose-Solomon. Over the last 20 years, Diane has worked with rescued dogs, helping them re-enter a world where people are kind to them. She has gathered a national network of colleagues who are top pet professionals. Through her volunteerism with rescue organizations, she’s met many prospective pet owners asking questions and voicing concerns about pet adoption.
What to Expect When Adopting a Dog offers expert advice from rescue specialists, veterinarians, dog parents, and pet business owners with links to the best, most relevant articles from pet professionals, making this book a one-stop shop for all dog-related questions, before, during, and after adoption.
The book answers questions like whether dog adoption is right for you, how to adopt a dog from a shelter or rescue group, how to prepare your home for a new member, integrating the dog into your home, family, lifestyle, and more. In five modules, Diane leads the reader through all the steps they should take to decide on a dog, go through the adoption process, bring the new pet home, as well as lifelong care. And, with the shorter lives of animals, she delivers a heartfelt chapter on saying goodbye to a pet.
There are thousands of dogs waiting for a loving home. This book educates a prospective pet parent on what to expect and how to add the joy of dog parenting.

Author Bio
After rescuing a puppy 21 years ago,
Diane Rose-Solomon became involved in animal rescue and education,serving for years on the board of directors of a small grassroots organization, the Animal Guardian Society. To give back more to the animal community, she became a Certified Humane Education Specialist through Humane Society University in 2009. She then combined her humane and creative interests by publishing her first two books, award-winning JJ the American Street Dog, and How He Came to Live in Our House and the sequel JJ Goes to Puppy Class.
Diane enjoys reading her stories to children in schools, libraries and at adoption events. Her goal is to educate children and adults about how compassion extends to all beings, human and animal. To this end, she founded Team Kindness, a program where children, families and teachers learn about and engage in kind and humane educational activities.
Diane’s newest nonfiction title, What to Expect When Adopting a Dog was released in September 2016. She lives in Los Angeles with her husband, two children and two rescued dogs.
