  • Honey

    Lab Mix
    Honey is a sweet, loving dog that is looking for a home with a companion. She's happy romping around at camp or playing with her toys at home. She does have seperation anxiety, which is why a house with another dog may be ideal. She may be shy at first, but becomes the biggest love-bug when she gets to know you. If you have any questions about her, just ask one of our counselors!

 About the Owners: 


Erik and Tim have been life long dog lovers.  They currently have one dog, a puggle named Kirby Wigglebutt. Kirby has been attending Camp at the Mission Hills location since he was a pup in 2008.  He was going so frequently and had so much fun, that the folks over at Camp Run A Mutt dubbed him “The Mayor”.

Erik is originally from New York and moved here in 1995 after graduating from Rutgers University.   He worked for AAA for several years before going to graduate school and earning his MBA.  From there, Erik has worked in sales and Human Resources.  With almost 20 years of customer service and human resources experience, Erik is excited to be em”bark”ing on this new adventure.  Tim, originally from Ohio, moved to San Diego in 2005.  He has his Master’s degree in Information Management from The University of Akron and is a Professional Project Manager.  Tim brings over 25 years of experience working with teams in the public and private sector to Camp Run-A-Mutt.   Both Erik and Tim are eager to be involved owners and you will surely be seeing them around.  If you do, please say “Hi!”. 

The “Mayor” could not be reached for comment.
