Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We also re home pets that someone can no longer keep due to extreme financial hardship or terminal illness.
We try to help keep pets out of the shelter and in loving homes.
We rescue many dogs from their last day's at our local Southern California shelter's and off the streets. Our primary mission is to keep pet companions OUT of the shelter.
Be sure to come by and visit us and support us by having your purchased Barnes and Noble item, gift wrapped. All proceeds benefit our rescue.

Once we review your application we will respond as quickly as possible to set up an appointment for a meet and greet. *Please see above special notes*.
Every other Saturday a private "meet & greet" will be scheduled so that you can meet your new family member in a calm, fenced in area or agreed upon location so that you can get a better idea of what dog is the best fit for you and your family!
To schedule your meeting please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. An appointment must be made for meet and greets.
Most "meet & greets"will vary and be according to both parties locations. We try to accommodate you as best as possible while keeping the rescued fur kids in a safe environment.
We look forward to meeting you and hope to make a match for your family with one of rescued fur kids!
Thank you so much for choosing to adopt!
ADOPT don't shop!
Please be patient with us responding to your emails. We solely operate on an all volunteer basis it may take several days to respond back.
If you're interested in one of our dogs, we'll ask that you fill out a adoption application and talk with an adoption counselor. If we determine that you and the dog you are interested in adopting could be a good match we'll do a home visit. If all goes well at the home visit we will proceed with the adoption.
Our goal is to find the best match possible for our rescued animals so that the pet and the adopters are happy and the dog will remain in his/her new home forever.
A $200 tax-deductible donation is required for all dog adoptions. A $50 tax-deductible donation is required for all cat adoptions. The dog or cat you adopt will have already been spayed/neutered, will have already received all his/her vaccinations and will also have a microchip!

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.
