Malu was saved on what would have been her last day on earth due to neglect and abuse.

Found with serious mange which left her hairless and bleeding to the touch it took her 3 months to fully regain her hair and her health.

She is a VERY friendly dog and has been well socialized in our care. She is house trained, loves to snuggle and is good with children too

We want her to have the best home possible and are looking for home owners not renters, fenced yards not chains, previous dog owner not first time dog owners.

You see we know everyone we adopt to is a stranger and while we want to believe everyone is good we know that is not true. So we are asking for certain things to help us feel more comfortable with where we send her.

She truly has forgotten her other life and acts like she has never had a hard day in her life though we know that is not true.

Please beware of the graphic pictures of her rescue...We want everyone to understand exactly how bad she was when rescued.

Please help us make room to save more homeless pets!!! Adopting from Hope Rescues saves the life of two.. the one you adopt and the one your adoption makes room for. We are a Rescue which means we physically go and save lives. Hope pulls animals on their last day of life from animal control facilities that still use the inhumane gas chamber to put to death homeless pets. Please visit our website at

About Hope Animal Rescues

About Our Rescue Group...

We are "Hope" for animals left to die at animal control facilities that use the gas chamber to euthanize homeless pets. We lobby our government to ban the use of these chambers and until that day arrives will save as many as we can from that inhumane fate.
Adopting a pet from us is like saving two lives. The life you take home and the life your adoption makes room for.
We are a not-for-profit organization and 100% of our funds are put back into the rescue and re homing of pets.
