Creators of the official symbol of dog rescue, WagAware, hosted a meet and greet with Instagram celebrity and rescue dog @TunaMeltsMyHeart at L.A. Love & Leashes in Los Angeles.
Tuna is an adorable 3 year-old Chihuahua-Daschund mix born with an aggressive overbite and a lower jawline-dysfunction. Those who can see past his irregularities also adore him for them and he has quite the following. Despite the pouring rain, over 200 people, including famed skateboarder and actor, Rob Dyrdek, showed up to meet the lovable and unique dog at an equally unique pet store.
L.A. Love & Leashes is the first "shelter shop” that is fully dedicated to animals from Los Angeles’ six city animal shelters. Created by the non-profit Friends of L.A. Animal Shelters, L.A. Love & Leashes is a high traffic adoption and education venue funded by donations and the sale of pet-related merchandise. Adoption fees are the same as those charged at the city shelters, and 100% of the adoption fees go daily back to the shelter.
In an effort to help end dog homelessness, when attendants purchased a WagAware Charm they received a personal thank you and photo with Tuna. WagAware donated 50% of the proceeds to L.A. Love & Leashes "Shelter Shop.”
