Ava is a very special dog and will require someone will experience with hydrocephalus. She was born with it and has special needs. She is under the care of a wonderful neurologist and since she's been on her medications she has had no siezures however its possible that at some point she will have a few seizures so we are hoping to find someone who does have experience. she is as sweet as they come and has so much energy and love to give! We prefer a home without kids and without other animals, only because she is so fragile!

About The Pepper Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

We rescue primarily special needs, and senior animals from Los Angeles City and County Animal Shelters. The chances that these animals will ever be adopted out of the shetlers are very slim and we feel these little souls deserve a second chance at a forever loving home. Most of these animals are euthanized in the shelters. It is our mission to get them rehabilitated and make sure they get whatever medical attention they need, which includes blood panels, exrays, ultra sounds and whatever is needed at the time. Alot of the time these animals have been abandoned ,in critical condition and many times abused! We try to get them adopted into forever loving homes, which of course is not always easy. The ones that we cant place live out their lives with lots of TLC in one of our loving foster homes. We are always looking for great new foster homes!

Donations are Urgently needed at this time, and of course are always welcome since we operate by donations only..All donations are tax deductible and can be made directly through our pay pal account:
