LCAL’s biggest mission in animal rescue is saving the ones that are overlooked due to medical needs, and ELEVEN is no exception!  We pulled her from the Bonita shelter after she was deemed not-for-public adoption due to a heart murmur.  She found herself there as a stray at only 5 weeks of age.  Did the person who had her know this about her heart?  Did she simply stray away and no one came looking for her?  Either way, she was still too young to be away from her mama dog and litter mates, if she had any.  So many questions … and no answers.  But THIS MUCH we know — she is now an LCAL pup, and we welcome her, heart murmur and all!  We’ve completed an echocardiogram with the cardiologist last week, and she was diagnosed with severe pulmonic valve stenosis — a grade V/VI systolic murmur.   With a heart condition like this, unfortunately, Eleven’s lifespan will be greatly shortened.  She could live another two months or she could live another two years.  If she lives to be 10 months old, we can do another procedure called a balloon valvuloplasty on her, which may help give her a longer lifespan.   For now, she is all puppy — playful, silly, eating well, and chewing on everything she can sink her little razor sharp puppy teeth into!     She is currently being fostered with one of our volunteers in a home with another Boxer and a Mastiff.  We’d love to find a forever home or hospice foster for her.  Her dark eyes and loving personality will surely keep you smiling every – single – day she walks this earth!   Questions/inquiries – “”

About Last Chance at Life All Breed Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Last Chance at Life is an all-breed rescue and adoption organization. We have a special fondness for Boxers, birds, and ANY pet in need of medical care. We take in animals from all over San Diego County. Our rescues come to us from local shelters and humane societies, owners who can no longer properly care for them, and through other rescue groups. Most often these animals are facing euthanasia because of medical or behavioral needs. Because of this, we are truly their “Last Chance at Life.”

Some of our pets are in foster homes, and others are cared for at our Adoption Center in Oceanside, CA.

All of our pets receive the very best in medical care from the doctors and staff at Mission Animal and Bird Hospital. The entire team is very committed to offering care to our pets in need and no short cuts are ever taken because these are rescue pets. Visit Mission Animal and Bird Hospital.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Our pets are available to meet at our adoption events and at our Adoption Center. We have a partnership with the Petco Organization so we are at one of their stores every weekend.

If you would like to meet a dog at our Adoption Center during the week, those appointments are by appointment only as our center is an un-manned facility.

If you are interested in meeting one of our amazing LCAL pets please email Pam at

Our Adoption Process...

The first step in the adoption process is an application. We also ask for a letter of recommendation from a current or past veterinarian you have used for any other animals you have or have had in the past. This letter is basically the doctor recommending you for adoption based on your history of taking good medical care of your animals. If you rent, we ask for proof that you are allowed to have a dog in your home. That's it paperwork-wise. Then we can work to find the dog that is the perfect fit for your family. If you do not have a vet that you have used in the recent past, no problem! We will schedule a home visit.

The adoption, once you have decided on your new furry family member, includes the following:

We will provide you with 3 months of flea and tick products as well as a year of heartworm. We also provide a year of Wellness at Mission Animal & Bird Hospital in Oceanside. There is no cost for the Wellness Program and it provides the following:

Dog Adult Basic Plan:
For dogs over 6 months of age
Two complete wellness exams
Unlimited office visits
All core vaccinations
Two fecal exams for parasites
Deworming (round and hookworms)
Free interstate health certificates
Nail trims and anal gland expression at ½ reg. fee
Venipuncture fee
Complete Blood Count (CBC)
Blood panel, including kidney and liver screen, calcium, phosphorus, cholesterol, and glucose (diabetes)
Complete urinalysis
Annual heart worm test

The adoption fee is a donation of your choice with a minimum of $200. This fee includes all services above as well as microchip. Your pet has been spayed/neutered and will come with a full medical history as best as we can give. When the dogs come to us they see a vet right away for an intake exam so we know as much as possible regarding their current health. They are given vaccines and we take blood, fecal, and urine to send to the lab to look for any other health issues that we can treat.
