Introducing Mama Bear. She is the mother of our litter of 5 puppies, all of whom have pending adoptions. Sadly, this was not her first litter. But it's her last! Now it's Mama Bear's turn to live a comfy, easy life.

She is a German Shepherd. She's approximately 5 years old but had such a hard life. Scars & torn ear to name a few signs. She is absolutely the sweetest! No food aggression even though she came to us extremely under weight. No issues with humans even though some disgusting humans obviously didn't treat her nicely. Great with other dogs and seems to be okay with dog savvy cats so far.

The former "owners" packed up and abandoned Mama Bear and her pups, leaving them to fend for themselves in an empty warehouse. Mama Bear through it all remains loving and kind and smart.

From her foster: "Mama Bear is just sweet, kind and gentle. Most of her day is spent relaxing on the couch as she is very laid back. At our adoption events she greeted all the kids with a kiss. Before her puppies were adopted, she would always check on them but always let people handle them. She has no separation anxiety, not a big barker, and no destructive behavior. When I'm away, she hangs out with my dogs in the living room. She gets along great with my large and small dog. She gives my big dog kisses and allows her to do everything first. With my cranky senior yorkie who is blind & deaf, she gives her space. She is good on leash and in the car and fully house trained. She is shy about doing her business, but have had success when I walk her with my large dog. This will be easier if she has a gated yard and can have some privacy for her business. Mama Bear has been a great, low maintenance addition to my home."

Our Adoption Process...

If you are interested in adopting one of our animals, please fill out an application on our website, LAAR.ORG. Go to the page titled "Adoption Process" for the application.

Our adoption process includes an application, home check, adoption contract and adoption fee.

We do not "sell" animals. We re-home animals and we ask for a donation to be made to our organization to help cover some of the costs we incur when we take on an animal. Quite often the animals are not in the best of health so they are immediately taken to the vet and given whatever medical attention is necessary. *The adoption fee for dogs is $300-500 and for cats/kittens is $175.
