The Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS) recently received a much-welcomed donation of six new shade sails. The structures cover a large gated area used for obedience training and will help humans and canines keep cool in the summer heat. The shade sails were manufactured and donated by Shazeebo, a local shade product manufacturing company. The whole Shazeebo crew spent an afternoon installing the shade sails. The posts used for installation were donated by a neighbor of the RCHS. The humane society has worked to provide shelter care and adoption services for local pets in need since its founding in 1960, as well as educational programs.

The shade sail donations are part of Shazeebo’s Stay in the Shade Program, which invites any nonprofit organization to explain how a free Shazeebo would help their programs. Learn more at
