These are all the submissions the Observer received from locals in the RR area. Dogs of all shapes and sizes that have a home.

However, there are many out there who do not have a home and that is what August 26 is all about. Like Watermelon Mountain Ranch says on its web site: “Be a lifesaver.”


There are a few things you can do to show support:

  1. Adopt
  2. Donate to a shelter (For example Watermelon Mountain Ranch)
  3. Treat your dog to a well deserved day off

Here are some sites to check out, just click on them:
