Help build Shane's place 4 Paws

Hello there!
Shane's Place for Paws is an up and coming doggy day care & potential foster program for small breeds and small animals. Your contribution will help continue toward being licensed and bonded, and be able to establish a location in the East Bay Area. We will help surrendered animals find new homes, as well as continue giving the 5 star service for day care and boarding. One day it would be great to open an online store, too!

We need to build, & what we need is marketing, updated software, more stock, & dream to one day in the next few years have our own location where an employee is with all companions 24/7. 

Check out what I've accomplished so far here! 

Shane became homeless shortly after his Grandmother, who was his guardian,  died in 2011. He found odd jobs such as cleaning, organizing homes,  & dog watching & dog walking. He would take multiple dogs on walks & to dog parks. It was there he noticed there needed to be a new kind of day care.  A place where small breed dogs feel safe without other larger animals giving them anxiety. A large amount of dogs are from a shelter. Most shelter dogs, especially small breeds, can have major anxieties. Anxieties like these can be triggered with a larger dog, even if that larger dog is a gentle giant. 

Shane got a job at a hotel, while part time walking dogs. He got on his feet & from there nothing has stopped him.  He now has been with his partner for over 5 years & together they run Shane's Place for Paws. 

It now has evolved into an at home day care sanctuary for small breed dogs, & still we13692071_1543306139428986_r.jpeg13692071_154330617056043_r.jpeg13692071_1543306220441522_r.jpeg13692071_1543306252459832_r.jpeg13692071_1543306275970138_r.jpeg13692071_1543306301761661_r.jpeg have a long way to go! Shane strives to never be homeless again, while doing something that serves his community as well as saves the lives on animals.
