You can't find a better pal than Alvin. He is approximately 5 years old and super calm and loving. Sweet and affectionate as they come.  He does great on leash and in the car. He would do best as the only dog or with a calm female dog in the house.  Goes crazy happy when he sees the leash and realizes he's going out. He loves going on walks.       Loves meal time.  Sleeps in a crate and is very happy with that.   He hasn't had the easiest start to his life and had some issues with his legs that our rescue has helped him with but he is one very sweet boy who deserves a great home.

Adoptions are held every SATURDAY at the Petco on La Brea at 2nd (behind the Ralph's on 3rd), from 1 to 4.

About Tails of the City Animal Rescue

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our adoptions are held every Saturday from 1-4pm at the Petco at 8161 Beverly Blvd. Los Angeles 90048

Our Adoption Process...

1. Complete the Adoption Application which you can find at and please fill it out completely. We know our dogs and their personalities well. The more information we have about your situation, the easier it will be for us to see if the dog you are interested in is a good match for you.
2. Meet the dog you are interested in at our Adoption Event. Bring your family and your other dogs, if you have them, so we can evaluate their interaction.
3. Once your application is accepted and all parties agree to proceed with the adoption, we will make a Home Visit. A home visit by one of our experienced board members ensures that you are able to provide a safe environment for your newly adopted pet.
4. A Signed Agreement is the next step of the process. Your application becomes part of the agreement by reference.
5. Your Tax-Deductible Donation. This is the final step of the adoption process. We ask for a suggested minimum donation of $300.00. We operate solely on individual donations. We receive no government funding or corporate sponsorship. The amount we suggest does not even begin to cover the cost of rescuing and placing one animal. If you can donate more we would be most grateful, as it may help save one more adorable face at the shelter that we would have had to otherwise leave behind. Feel empowered by your donation, because we cannot continue our work without your help!
