The American Kennel Club established the Canine Good Citizen training certification program in 1989 as a way to set a national standard for what it means to be a “well-trained dog.” Karma Rescue has been able to certify over 30 pit bulls a year as American Kennel Club Canine Good Citizens.
Bringing a new cat, or kitten into your home is exciting. We know you chose your kitty with love and care—but remember that you are a stranger to your new cat and your cat is in a strange new place. Don’t be surprised if it takes a few weeks for your cat to acclimate; rest assured, however, that your new cat wants to love you and your home. He/she just needs a few things to help him/her be comfortable.
The City of Los Angeles Department of Animal Services estimates that anywhere from 40,000 to 50,000 feral and stray dogs and cats roam the streets of Los Angeles at any time. Karma Rescue suggests you use the following steps when finding a stray.
