Rufus and Delilah is featuring 10 shelter dogs from East Valley Animal Services this week as the Los Angeles Dog Adoption of the week. If you or anyone you know is considering getting a dog, please go to the East Valley Animal Services or check out the Facebook page for Friends of East Valley Animal Services for some truly amazing dogs in need of finding their FuRRRRever homes.
If you didn’t read our article on July 7th, East Valley Animal Services #4DAYS4LIFE Campaign Saves 60+ Shelter Dogs From Euthanization, you are missing out on a great story. East Valley Animal Services volunteers started an impromptu social media campaign on July 2nd asking the community to help either adopt or foster 60+ of their shelter dogs over the 4th of July weekend to make room for all the dogs they expected to come in because they would either run away after getting spooked by fireworks or would wander out of 4th of July celebrations when doors and gates were not closed properly.
As a result of fostering out so many dogs from the East Valley Animal Shelter in the #4DAYS4LIFE Facebook campaign, the feedback posted from the temporary fosters on the Friends of East Valley Animal Services gives new light to how wonderful these dogs truly are when outside of their shelter cages including pictures and videos showing happy dogs rather than scared looking dogs in their shelter cages. The feedback also includes descriptions on the dogs personalities and how they get along with people and pets. When potential adopters go to a shelter to look for a dog, if they don’t know these types of details, it can be a deal breaker making it so they don’t bring home a shelter dog.
Today Rufus and Delilah is featuring 10 of the East Valley Animal Services dogs who need FuRRRRever homes after they return from their #4DAYS4LIFE foster stays.

#4DAYS4LIFE – Peanut’s last night in his foster home….please share to find him a home or another foster! “This big pup has been such a joy to have around. From playing fetch to watching him amuse himself by throwing his stuffed teddy bear into the air and trying to catch it, he has brought nothing but happiness into my home – which is something I know he will do for a forever-family!
