Since 1982, when concerned locals banded together to address the fact that Sonoma had no animal shelter, Pets Lifeline has been, as its name suggests, an essential lifesaving resource to local dogs and cats who find themselves homeless. At its shelter, opened in 1987, hundreds of critters each year find a safe place to land until they're either reunited with their owners or new families come to take them home.
Making this great work possible is a lot of support from the community, including such creative partnerships as the Cru Vin Dog Group, a collaboration of a local distributor and wineries in which a portion of sales go to rescue. Then there's the upcoming Tailwags & Handbags luncheon at Estate, where some truly stylin' purses will be up for bid to help the animals.
And if you're looking for a compact but faithful traveling companion, consider Lucy. This little lady came to Pets Lifeline with her family of puppies, who have since found homes. A sweet, loving girl, she prefers quieter adult company and would love to share your life and adventures.
