This year, I’m a proud supporter of the Coldwell Banker’s Homes for Dogs Project. I’m taking part in the National Pet Adoption event occurring this Saturday October 6th, 2018 from 11AM to 1PM.
In honor of the adoption event, I’ve created a list of delicious homemade dog treat recipes to delight your new pet on the ride to their forever home. If you don’t plan on adopting this weekend, feel free to visit the adoption event anyway and see some adorable pups!
The event will take place at the Rancho Coastal Humane Society located at 389 Requeza St., Encinitas CA 92024. Adoption can be exciting, but there’s a lot to be done before bringing Fido home. To ensure your family is prepared for a new dog, check out this article on bringing a new dog home for the first time.
