United Hope for Animals (UHA) is a volunteer group and does not have a facility for animals. This pet is part of our Shelter Support Program at the Baldwin Park Shelter. For more information about the pet, the adoption process, or our program please contact the Volunteer Adoption Coordinator listed below.
Because animals are adopted/rescued daily, please also check the United Hope for Animals Facebook page to see if an animal is still available OR call the Baldwin Park Shelter at 626-962-3577. When inquiring about an animal, please reference the animal’s ID number. This will enable the volunteer or Baldwin Park employee to locate the status of the pet. Thank you for supporting rescue.

A4755742 King is a plumply regal, self-assured 8-year-old black-and-tan neutered male German Shepherd who was abandoned with his buddy Lucky [A4182766] at the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center on October 1st because his owner was moving and wasn’t taking the dogs with him. Weighing 90 lbs—and needing to shed about 15 lbs via a good, nutritious diet sans snacks—King the chunky monkey has a low-to-medium energy, likes his pal Lucky very much, shows signs of being house trained, loves being touched and getting affection, and is a confident fellow. Staff noted that his hind quarters tend to go out from underneath him and that he has a hard time getting up from a lying position. This could be arthritis or some other ailment, and it’s probably exacerbated by his chubbiness. Like his buddy Lucky, King has fly strike and thus may have spent much time outside. King appears to be bonded with Lucky, but we know how hard it is to adopt or rescue two large dogs together, and we feel they’d do fine singly, adapting easily to being in a new, loving family without the other. King will make an excellent indoor pet and companion for any individual or family that loves this wonderful breed and wants to make him comfortable and valued.
