Help Blind Fancy Get Her Sight Back!

Help Blind Fancy Get Her Sight Back!

Animal Friends Connection needs you to help Fancy see again! Sweet sweet little Fancy is a beautiful blind 7 yr old Cocker. AFC is currently raising funds to provide sight saving surgery for Fancy! Her surgery to give her back vision in one eye is $2,100. Come meet Fancy at the AFC Jog A Dog Event on Sunday at Lodi Lake Park and share in the miracle of helping a blind dog regain her sight! 

An incredibly generous donor has offered to match ALL donations up to $1,000 for Fancy's surgery! Once we raise $1,000 from donations, she will then match it with another $1,000! Each dollar you give now counts double towards helping this sweet little girl see again. 

Lodi High Key Club Gives AFC Homeless Dogs a Spa Day!

Lodi High Key Club Gives AFC Homeless Dogs a Spa Day!

Giovanni, President of the Key Club, contacted AFC with the idea for the Key Club to volunteer at AFC.They came with seven volunteers and spent several hours helping out.

They started off their morning walking the homeless pups at the Animal Friends Connection Sanctuary. After walking the dogs 2 1/2 miles, they jumped into providing a spa day! They bathed, blow dried, brushed and snuggled! One volunteer, Elia, gave 12 dogs a bath! She is coming back to volunteer again!



Volunteer Dog Walkers needed daily at 10:00 am for Walk N Wag (no Weds). Walking the sanctuary pups makes a HUGE difference in their happiness, calmness, helps with leash skills and socialization. Not to mention all the love you receive in return and the health benefits! My doc is always saying to get in more exercise. This is a great motivator! Not only do you get healthy but think of all the great karma your earning at the same time. Your time and love is a precious gift to these pups!

"Not Just and Adoption -  A Perfect Match"

Dog lovers defend pit bulls as breed

SACRAMENTO, CA - A pit bull attack that left a woman in Stockton dead Thursday has re-ignited a debate about the breed: Is their reputation for violence deserved?

STORY: Woman killed in apparent pit bull attack in Stockton ID'd

Owners of American Staffordshire Terriers competing at Cal Expo's Sacramento Kennel Club Dog Show will tell you their dogs are often mistaken by the public for pit bulls, so they're intimately aware of the public scorn for pit bulls.

That's especially true for Richard Chatigny. After years of raising Amstaffs and other dogs, he and his wife adopted a pit bull named Sadie.

"She's the calmest. She's the most obedient. She's the most accepting of anybody and everybody. She's a great ambassador," Chatigny said of Sadie.
