A group of friends who have a passion for saving and caring for animals has started a unique no-kill dog shelter, their mission? To help, "abused, neglected, abandoned dogs by providing them with shelter, care and affection until a loving home is found." It's a project called "Rescuing Cujo," and they are having an open house on Saturday, May,11. 

"Rescuing Cujo" started with friends Rob Harris, Rick Goldenstein, Connie Cook Saunders, and Luis Saunders. The facility was constructed in the scenic craggy landscape of Jamul California. 

For those of you wondering, the name "Cujo" in the title is an homage to founder Rob Harris' labrador and pit bull mix with the same name. People were intimidated by Cujo, but Harris put him through obedience training which helped him become the gentle giant people knew and loved. "Cujo grew up to be such a friendly, fun dog, who loved people and playing with other dogs. He showed me how dogs are a great source of love, happiness, and companionship," said Harris. 

This is the same outcome staff at "Rescuing Cujo" would like to give other dogs the same opportunity.

"Rescuing Cujo" works with Bonita Animal services and rescues dogs and in many cases, works with them, socializing them to be better around people and other dogs. They are also licensed by the county as a registered non-profit. 

Join them for their very first Open House and meet the founders, volunteers and all the loveable pups.

You’ll enjoy touring their beautiful facility; food and drinks will be provided.  It’s a great family event.
