Holiday Pet Safety Tips
With the holiday seasons upon us it's important to keep your four legged loved ones safe! Here are a few tips to keep you and yours happy and safe this holiday season!
  1. Be mindful of cold weather products such as de-icing products, salt, and anti-freeze! When walking your pet outside during the snow and ice be sure to wipe their paws and undersides thoroughly when returning inside. This will ensure your pet is safe from any skin irritations or more serious conditions. 
  2. Keep all holiday decorations out of reach such as tinsel and ribbon. Ingestion of these materials could cause serious health complications for your pet.
  3. There are lots of beautiful holiday plants out there but many of them are dangerous to your pets if ingested. Keep lilies, mistletoe, ivy, holly, and poinsettias out of reach!  
  4. We all love our fur friends very much and want them to enjoy some of the same yummy treats we do but keep in mind that turkey bones can be very dangerous to our pets and could cause obstructions. Holiday sweets such as chocolate are dangerous too! Keep the yummies out of reach of your furry friends.  
  5. With the holidays come lots of visitors and/or out of town trips. It's important to ensure your pet is properly tagged and micro-chipped in the event they become spooked during this holiday season.

First available in 1995, the Tofurkey roast is a remarkably tasty and nutritious turkey alternative for those who choose a vegetarian or vegan lifestyle.  Tofurkey is renowned for its ease of preparation and turkey-like texture and flavor.  One bite and you'll understand why Tofurkey is the number one choice of vegetarians during the holidays and year-round!

Prepare the roast:
  • Remove roast from packaging & set gravy aside to thaw
  • Place the roast in a casserole dish (dish must have a tight fitting cover)
  • Place carrots and onions around the roast (celery may also be used, if you wish)
  • Whisk baste again and them pour half over the roast
  • Cover tightly to keep steam in
Cooking Instructions:
  • Cook at 350 F for 1 hour and 15 minutes
  • Remove from the oven, uncover the casserole and baste with remaining half of baste mixture

Leo's Story

In 2014, LBWF stepped in to help a fellow rescue, as it closed its doors.  Leo was one of the 9 lucky dogs LBWF took on as our own. He had developed allergies from his past life - his beautiful fawn colored fur was in rough shape and it took months to soothe and heal. He benefited from a grain free diet, coconut oil, apple cider vinegar and the product, Nzymes. After a year of struggling with his skin issues, we found this to be the magic cure for him, and so many rescued dogs we have here at LBWF that suffer from skin issues due to our dry weather.

Leo was adopted as a cute, fat puppy. He was well loved until his owner left for college! Story sound all too familiar nowadays? Unfortunately the student's parents didn't want the responsibility of this now, very large dog, so they gave Leo away. He mysteriously was found in a field and taken in by a loving family who had taken to caring for all dogs dumped in that particular field. The economy crashed, leaving this kindhearted family with no money to feed the family and pets. Leo, now severely underweight, found a safe haven with a loving rescue. 

Two years ago, they too fell on hard times and had to close their doors. This is becoming all too common in rescue, as the weight of the expenses of caring for all these left behind pets become unbearable.

LBWF stepped in to help Leo and 9 of his canine friends and 10 cats!  We discovered Leo loved to pass the time playing with his ropes and toys, hoping you might notice his joy, and watch him as he shook it side to side and bounced his hippo body around! He was a great walking companion, but still he scared everyone, with his large hippo body! 

We are so excited to announce that this gentle giant has FINALLY found his own forever, loving home! He deserves it. They all do.

Your support & donations to the LBWF rescued dogs allowed Leo, and all the 100 rescued dogs of LBWF, to live and thrive! Now it is his adoption day, April 2016! He has a 3 month old, TINY little Chihuahua sister named Miss Kitty, whom he loves to give kisses too!! We love you Leo! Thank you Grace, Sam and Miss Kitty for bringing Leo into your loving home and giving him the love he as begged for all these years.

Leo is a dog that proves what makes this work so incredible - never give up on them and their loyalty and ability to believe in humans, no matter how many times humans let them down!

Welcome to the world of rescue, we do it for the magical, magnificent friends, called animals. It is us humans, which are lucky to have them in our lives! I call them angels on earth, and feel privileged to serve them in their time of need! We must change laws to better protect them! We must continue to work towards mandatory spay/neuter, harsher penalties for animal cruelty, the end of backyard chaining, breed ban discrimination, and better quality of life for our fur friends.

Your donations go directly to the care of our rescued animals in need. We don't have the overheard the big groups have. We are 100% volunteer run which ensures your funds provide direct medical care, shelter, bedding, toys, grooming, cookies, etc to the 100 rescued dogs at the LBWF Wellness Center.


Your donations also assist us in educating the public on the aforementioned animal welfare topics and ensure we can continue fighting for Leo and all his fur friends we love so dearly.

Thank you for joining the LBWF Family and helping on this journey!

With great love and gratitude,

Linda

We recently stepped into assist Moreno Valley Shelter with several dogs they were rallying for. Below you will see photos of just a few of the sweet faces who have joined the LBWF Rescue and Wellness Center.

Please consider making a holiday gift to our rescued dogs in need whether its an in-kind donation, a financial donation, or doing holiday shopping with our rescue partners who give back. You can find all this information and more throughout the newsletter.
