I am extremely grateful to say that my first official job is with the ECO DOG WASH AND CARE LA.  Eco dog is green certified business and uses only natural, Vegan, eco friendly, biodegradable and cruelty free products with a range  from aloe vera and avocado infused simply bath spray  to  peppermint, cedar, geranium & lemongrass to argan oil, coconut-derived cleanser, jojoba, lavender and myrrh in their Simply Clean Shampoo. All of eco dogs products not only make your dog smell good using only natural ingredients but the formulas made also to naturally repel fleas & ticks.

 

IMG_1154Before i started working at eco dog i had been taking both my dogs (medium sized yellow lab and small tibetan terrier) for either a self wash or groom for years! Their prices are wonderful! Did i mention that its only $32 for a full day of cage free care! where the dogs play all day with each other and staff. When the dogs are boarding (staying over night) they are with a staff member at all times, get fed a natural healthy vegan dinner with no artificial flavor or colors (Im telling ya! the pups at eco dog eat healthier than me! ) and sleep in huge human beds with conforters and pillows.

I absolutley reccomend eco dog to anyone with a doggy! Whether it be big or small they are all accepted and treated with immense care and respect. Eco dog takes in dogs that were found on the street too with no home, abused and broken yet whenever i come in for work those dogs are filled with joy and love for the care that the dogs revieve is outstanding, i had never even heard of a dog care or wash that takes care of them as much as eco dog does.IMG_1153

Eco Dog Wash started in 2010 by Owner Karen

“I started this business because I love dogs and know that other dog lovers want eco-smart, eco-friendly options for self-wash, grooming, daycare & boarding services right here in our neighborhood.

I’ve lived here for over 20 years and am deeply committed to this community and doing what I can to support ecologically sound practices. In every aspect of the store operations we strive to be as clean and green as possible.”

My favorite course was Community Organizing 101 Service Project because it really made me realize that not only Can youth really can make a difference in different  communities, but we already have! There is no time to delay. There is no reason to wait until after college. The city and it’s people need our help and ideas now!

Civic Youth has taught me to be very proactive in my community and take initiative when there is none being taken. It has taught me to be more responsible and be a strong leader. When we were organizing our community projects I realized that I had strength as a group organizer and leadership skills. IMG_3054

 

Civic Youth helped me find my passion and what i want to do in life which is help people through Arts Activism and and be of service to The City.

Thank you Civic Youth LA, Empower LA and all the amazing mentors i had the opportunity to meet and work with:   Kimberly Rodriguez, Julienne Chen, Jasmine Elbarbary, Paola Fernadez, Tanya Pineda, Michael Long and Kevin Taylor and more!
