Giving Back

Whether working with the Los Angeles City animal shelters as a volunteer and then Volunteer Coordinator, serving as Executive Director of Villalobos Rescue Center, or offering training and behavior services, helping dogs in need has always been Nicole’s passion. Her books and lectures educate trainers and the general public about positive training methods, and Nicole donates books to various rescue groups, rehabilitation programs, and humane societies.

Nicole is now volunteering her photography skills to shelter and rescue groups. Professional quality photos can promote interest in adoptions and show dogs in their best light, both literally and figuratively. The photos below are of dogs from Angel Dogs Foundation Deaf Dog Ranch in Acton, CA (please note that not all of the dogs at this rescue are deaf–click their link for more information and to see dogs that are currently looking for homes) and Castaic Shelter.

If you are a non-profit rescue group, shelter, or humane society within reasonable driving distance of Santa Clarita (Valencia area) and would like your adoptable dogs photographed free of charge, please email Nicole at
