CASA de Perro

Casa de Perro is the insane punk rock home and rehabilitation center for the Misfit Hounds. All Misfits are fostered and rehabilitated here before adoption. This allows us to see their true personality, get them the vet care they need, as well as finally having a safe space to recover from any trauma or abuse they endured.
