Goofy’s owner is homeless and Goofy is the only family she has: “…he is my son and the other half of my soul…” When Goofy was attacked by a German Shepherd while on a walk with his owner, she didn’t know how she was going to pay for the needed veterinary care for Goofy. Thanks to Drs. Weatherford and Toro at the Tustin Santa Ana Veterinary Hospital applying for an ANGEL FUND Grant from the AHF, Goofy is recovering from his wounds!

MONTEREY PARK >> A police K9 officer received a ballistic vest recently after the Monterey Park Police Department received the needed $950 in donations, officials said.
K9 Robin received the equipment June 26 from nonprofit organizations Vested Interest in K9s Inc. and the Animal Health Foundation of Lake Forest, Monterey Park police Sgt. Gus Jimenez wrote in a statement.
Vested Interest in K9s provides protective vests for $950 and offers a five-year warranty. Vests provide the law enforcement canines some protection from bullets, knife attacks and other dangers.
Robin’s vest will be embroidered with the sentiment “This gift of protection provided by the Animal Health Foundation.”
This is the second such piece to be awarded to a Monterey Park K9 this year. K9 Veeda received one in May.
