Walk, Woof, Wag!

Walk Woof Wag, an annual dog fun walk and fundraiser, was inspired by Chico youth, Bryce Velasco, who wanted to honor his dog, Jasmine, who was adopted through Chico Animal Shelter. In 2014, Bryce was in the 8th grade at Marsh Junior High School and taking a leadership class that requires students perform a service project. Bryce’s vision was a walk that would be festive and fun and raise funds for Chico Animal Shelter. He approached Dr. Sarah Richardson, owner of The Canine Connection (Jasmine’s “go to” place for training, daycare, and boarding) and asked if she would help him transform his idea into reality. She and Bryce joined forces and planning for the first Walk Woof Wag gathering (held in 2014) began. It was decided that funds raised through Walk Woof Wag would go to Chico Animal Shelter’s medical fund so that the animals in their care can receive the medical care they need while they await loving, permanent homes.

Donation Drive!

Catalyst has recently opened it's doors to the animals of domestic violence victims! Did you know that domestic violence victims are less likely to leave an abusive situation if they have to leave their pet behind?  Statistics prove that the animals will continue to receive the abuse in retaliation for the partner who left or abuse the animal in order to control the victim. Before Catalyst opened isn't doors, there was no place for a domestic violence victim to go in the Chico area with their beloved pet.  We are so thankful for Catalyst and what they do to help our community!

Catalyst is looking for dry/wet dog and cat food, toys, treats, litter, brushes and more. Donations can be dropped off at TrailBlazer Pet Supply or Catalyst. If you aren't sure what to donate, make a monetary donation!  Tis the season of giving, Merry Christmas!
