Hi friends, my name is Checkers. I am such a friendly little 8 pound fluff ball. I get along with everyone and everything, AND I'm not even a barker! The vet thinks I'm around 5-7 years old. They also found that I have a grade 2 heart murmer, but so far a slight cough is the only sign I've shown of it affecting me. Otherwise, I'm a playful, happy, and loving pup! The rescue even found a sponsor to cover all the heart murmer medical care for the rest of my life! How amazing is that?! I have so much love to give to that special someone who is ready to open their heart and home to me.

Tax deductible reduced adoption fee of $150 for Checkers.

Checkers is fixed, chipped, and up to date on vaccinations.

About Homeless to Forever Foundation - Sherman Oaks

About Our Rescue Group...

Many more pets available for adoption through our other location covering the East side of Greater Los Angeles:

A 501c3 animal rescue foundation, our primary aim is to provide rescue and forever home placement of animals from the Southern California shelter systems. We aim to provide last minute rescue to critters and other animals that have been scheduled for euthanasia and have run out of time in securing an help from local animal rescue organizations.

Our secondary goal is to provide the same quality of rescue and placement for animals abandoned or in need of being rehomed by private individuals with the goal of preventing these creatures from otherwise entering the shelter system.

Homeless To Forever will also selectively and minimally team with and support the rescue of animals that are outside the Southern California region, however in a very limited capacity.

Finally, Homeless To Forever will support a limited range of ventures and rescues in pursuit of wildlife education, awareness, advocacy, rescue, and rehabilitation.

Donate to Our Rescue Group...
