International Homeless Animals' Day
Saturday, August 16, 2014 is International Homeless Animals'
Organizations around the world will come together August to raise awareness about the pet overpopulation epidemic. International Homeless Animals’ Day activities often include candlelight vigils, adopt-a-thons, spay/neuter clinics, microchip clinics, blessings of the animals, and heartfelt speeches given by council members, local veterinarians, humane officers and shelter personnel.
By coming together on International Homeless Animals’ Day you can support
RFSC in letting the world know we will not tolerate the senseless killing that continues to take the lives of innocent dogs, cats, puppies and kittens simply because there are not enough good homes for them.
Together, we will continue to be a voice for the animals, and continue to demand an end to the suffering these animals face each day

One of a Kind Bird Houses
One of our local volunteers,
Jolinda makes one of a kind bird houses and the proceeds of the sales go to benefit the pets at Retrievers and Friends.
Jolinda shares the following:
The birdhouses are made of 100% recycled wood and trinkets. We find old door knobs, hinges and anything fun we can use to make these one of a kind birdhouses. Most have license plates for tops which can come off for cleaning each year.
The Wrens at my house come back each year to make their nests in mine. They are so much fun to watch and listen to. When you purchase a birdhouse the proceeds go to Retrievers and Friends to assist in the care of the rescued animals until a forever home is found. Please consider adopting a forever friend and/or a birdhouse. If you would like to order a birdhouse, please contact Jolinda at 760 420 0805
Jolinda had made 4 birdhouses for Nancy. Nancy shares the following:
After my mother passed away, we had several trinkets (glass door knobs, old keys
different pieces of item from her home). I had. Jolinda make the houses for me, my two daughters and granddaughter in law.
Since my dad was born in Kentucky she found a Kentucky
license plate for mine, the others were made with California
license plates as the roof. it was a very special Christmas gift for me and my family. We all have them displayed in our home.
