this month's dog adoption results

San Diego Dog Adoption | Rock Church | Second Chance Dog Rescue This past weekend, The Rock Church Dog Lovers Ministry put on two adoption events—one in Point Loma, one in North County—in an attempt to get as many animals out of the shelter as possible before Christmas. We're happy to share that 21 dogs were adopted, clearing out an entire section at the Chula Vista Animal Facility!

If you're still looking for a great pet, there are PLENTY more in need of a home! We spent the afternoon with dogs like Fidel (above) and Noah (below), two little guys that love nothing more than being fed treats or taken for a walk. Noah really caught our attention when he showed us he could sit, shake, and lay down. Every time I took out a treat I'd feel his little scruffy paw land on my leg. He's just the cutest!

Noah | Second Chance Dog Rescue

Fidel and Noah are currently being fostered by Second Chance Animal Rescue. More info about them below!


Noah is a happy 2 year old Schnauzer Terrier mix that is about 20 lb. What a loving, shy, and sweet terrier guy!  He will put his head on your lap and become your best bud when he realizes you love him. Noah loves to talk to you when you show him affection and loves playing ball. He is that kind of scruffy and special dog that crawls into your heart and never leaves. He enjoys sitting at your feet, curled up next to you and feeling safe.  Noah gets along with other dogs and would be best in an home with adults.  He is such a wonderful gentleman who will reward your kindness with warmth and gratitude.

Noah is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.  His adoption fee is $200.

Fidel is a 1 year old Terrier mix that weighs 12 lbs.  Fidel is a great dog and gets along great with other dogs.  He is a young pup and has a lot of energy.  He is friendly with all people and kids.  He likes his play time but also enjoys cuddling or sitting on your lap.  Fidel will bark at other dogs at first but warms up quickly.  He is not completely house trained but he is working on it. This cutie would be a great addition to any family.

Fidel's adoption fee is $175.00 - he is neutered, microchipped and up to date on his vaccinations.

16 dogs adopted at The Rock

The Rock Dog Adoption GREAT NEWS...16 dogs were adopted at The Rock dog adoption event this past Sunday! We are SO happy for all of the wonderful dogs that found loving homes, and grateful for the people who gave them a chance.

The number of church attendees who signed up to either volunteer at future adoptions OR foster a shelter dog was incredible. The fact that we had to scramble to find people pens and answer people's questions was an inspiring way to end a crazy weekend. :)

Love Your City [pinit]

If I ever have a pen and paper in hand, I can't help but doodle. I don't know why. Most of the time I just practice re-writing what is already on the page in different fonts. Script. Serif. Sans serif. Big type. Tiny type.

I don't doodle because I'm a master at drawing. Haaardly. I doodle because my brain seems to be unable to shut itself off when it comes to creating, visualizing, and perfecting things. Think of it as ADD meets OCD. This is why I LOVE designing (logos, especially). Give me a logo project and it will be all I think about all day. In the car. On the phone. In bed. While I'm watching tv. I'll continue brainstorming and sketching until that glorious moment arrives...when I exhale in relief and say "That's IT."

The mark up top originated from a doodle I made this morning during church. (Yes, I was paying attention.) I didn't hem and haw over it like I do with client projects - I just made it for fun. I was inspired by the new series in church and I decided to make it more official.

What does it mean? It means exactly what it says: LOVE YOUR CITY. Take care of it. VOLUNTEER. Do something. (To learn more about the message of Pervasive Hope, click on the image.)

Regardless of whether not it's of your taste, [good] design makes simple messages MEMORABLE. It communicates the big picture as quickly as possible, in as few strokes as possible. So feel free to pin, share, or download my little graphic to encourage your city to take part.
