About Our Rescue Group:

The Animal Advocacy and Relief Foundation (DBA: Pooch Heaven) is a registered non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the rescue and placement of stray dogs. The foundation was formed by a dedicated group of individuals, who, at their own expense, have been searching the streets of Los Angeles for stray dogs and unwanted pets for several years.

Their loose network of dog rescuers have come together under the umbrella of the Animal Advocacy and Relief Foundation, which was made possible by the generous donations of several benefactors who have committed to continued support of our mission, both in time and money. The foundation asks that you also show your support for their heroic efforts and contribute to the cause.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
