Lisa Avery is a very centered and focused individual, especially when it comes to the welfare and care of animals. She has a great love and compassion for her own dog, Douglas Fur, and to my knowledge has never turned away from a request to be a part of any animal organization asking for help. She also promotes and talks to other animal lovers who are able to help out when necessary for the call ...
Lisa is such an amazing spirit. Some people are just "pet people" and Lisa is one of them. The time she spent with London I felt like he was with family and know that Lisa made every decision in his best interest. I would not hesitate for a moment to have Lisa care for London again either at her house or mine. I admire the work that she does with rescue agencies and the humane ...
Lisa is a kind and loving, gentle spirit who not only connects with people but has a special bond with dogs. Dogs love her! My dog was especially fond of Lisa and loved when she came to visit. Your dog will be in the very best of care with Lisa!
23+ Year Volunteer in Dog Rescue
Dogs are family to me and represent unconditional love. My deep and abiding respect for the canine species is what prompted me to begin volunteering with Best Friends Animal Society/NKLA in 1994. I've gone on to volunteer in high volume shelters rehoming & rehabilitating dogs of all kinds. For 4 years I worked exclusively on the Best Friends "Pup My Ride" team going weekly to Baldwin Park Shelter where we would transport adoptable candidates ...
What Lisa would like to know about your dog
I am comfortable will all breeds of dogs from Pitties to Pomeranians but I do require a "meet & greet" prior to accepting any booking commitment. What I need to know from you is if anything makes your dog tense, upset, uncomfortable or aggressive (skateboards, other dogs, strangers, men in particular et). If yes, how do they respond? Has your dog had any training? Are they comfortable walking on a leash? What are your "house rules"? Is your dog an introvert or an extrovert??? My current dog is a total introvert so I understand if your dog is less open to stimulation. Not all dogs enjoy the dog park. If your dog is a social butterfly I will make sure any other pup they interact with is the same kind of butterfly. Also, if your dog is not fixed I will need to know why as it may inhibit my ability to work with you. I believe all dogs should be spayed or neutered. It helps them live a longer life with less anxiety. And we don't need anymore pups in the shelters! Thanks so much!
