My mission is simple: Save All The Dogs! My name is Dani, and I am the owner and founder of Pooches and Palomas. I am also a mixologist and dog trainer. By combining my passions, I have formed a non-profit that's funded through a portion of each mixer sold. Using all natural ingredients, our artisanal cocktail mixers are named after different dog breeds in homage to our mission. So sit back and enjoy knowing your next sip is saving dogs!

Pooches and Palomas is excited to announce that alongside their Training Facility, they will be opening up a Fear-Free Dog Rescue in the fall of 2022 which has been inspired by a dog they found in the middle of the street in Mexico, on the 4th of July. The rescue pup, Bonsai, has inspired not only Dani herself but the entire community. The rescue of one Mexican street dog has highlighted how an entire community can all come together for one cause. Let Bonsai be the reminder of all of the good in this world. Pooches and Palomas have independently and successfully found homes for four dogs who they took into their care to date and are motivated to help many more dogs in need once we have the adequate space and resources.
