Hi! My name is Opal. I’m a purebred 5-6 year old female German Shepherd. I was in pretty bad condition when my foster dad first saw me. But he couldn’t stop to check me out because he was in a hurry to take Nicky to the vet. He was in worse shape than I was. The next day my foster dad returned to look for me. He found me living in the entrance of an abandoned train depot in south LA. I looked really bad and my foster dad didn’t know if I could be saved. He gave me some food so I let him put a leash on me and take me to the vet, too. The vet said I was extremely malnourished. All I needed was a good diet and some time to gain weight.
Now I’m spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, fecal test done, and frontlined. No jogging or long hikes please--not my cup of tea. I’m very loyal and I weigh about 50 pounds now. I’m okay with kids, dogs, and maybe cats. I’m housetrained with a doggy door. Will you give me a second chance for a good life? I love my foster daddy so much but I would love to have my own loving forever home. If you want me, contact .

About The Nature Network, Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Nature Network, Inc., is a non profit 501c3 federal tax exempt organization, publicly supported and existing entirely with the generous help of animal loving people. We rescue dogs, cats, horses, other domestic pets, birds, and wildlife, some on their last day of life from Los Angeles area pounds, and we work with local wildlife rescue organizations to save wildlife and birds (injured or orphaned). We love animals very much, and feel there can never be enough help for all animals in need, or enough loving homes or enough birth control for the domestic ones.

We are currently seeking grants, donors and sponsors to purchase the animal sanctuary and education center we have found for the Nature Network in the Valley area of Los Angeles.

We are preparing to again produce and host a previously award winning television show about the rescue and protection of domestic and wild animals and preservation of natural habitats.

More information to come soon. Our website, is currently under re-design, and will be up and active soon.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptable pets are boarded at kennels, veterinarians, foster homes and our friends' and family's homes. We sometimes also take part in Best Friends and Animal Planet adoption events. We recommend calling us to discuss your adoption needs. If it sounds like you would be happy and the pet would be happy, we can arrange for everyone to meet.
See our organization's info about our plans to purchase our dream animal sanctuary and humane education center---but not without your help.

Our Adoption Process...

After speaking by telephone, and coming to see our pet (if qualified), we will visit your home. If qualified, we bring our pet for a two week trial period with an application and contract. The adoption donation for dogs is $200-$350, and a $50-$150 adoption donation for cats and other small pets.
