Pet Information



A5011923 Franklin is an adorable 1-year-old red-and-tan male Chihuahua/Basenji mix puppy who came to the Baldwin Park Animal Care Center on November 14th as a stray from Duarte. 10-lb Franklin is very frightened at the shelter, but he’s as sweet as can be. He needs to be approached gently--his first impulse is to hide and watch his kennel mates to see if it’s safe--but he quickly warms up and wants to be held and snuggled. Once he relaxes in your arms, he is curious and affectionate. We couldn’t evaluate Franklin’s leash skills, because he was too overwhelmed to walk on leash. This cute little pup has wonderful auburn coloring and wide eyes. With time and puppy training, Franklin will make a wonderful indoor pet for anyone--and we think, given the way he looks to other dogs for leadership, he’d be a great companion for another dog. 

For more information on this pet, please contact volunteer UHA adoption coordinator Sandra at 323-350-7207 or


About United Hope for Animals LA

About Our Rescue Group...

United Hope for Animals is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to creating a world where our relationship with animals is guided by compassion and responsibility. We actively work toward bringing an end to the needless suffering of companion animals through community-based programs here at home and across the border.

The statistics are sobering: Together, one unspayed female dog, her unaltered mate and their offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in six years. Even with its prevalent spay/neuter programs, the United States euthanizes more than 6 million dogs and cats each year. Through our Shelter Support Program, we work in partnership with local shelters to reduce this number by raising public awareness about the overpopulation crisis faced by shelters, facilitating rescue and adoption of sheltered animals, and, in the process, bringing identity and dignity to the many lives that would otherwise pass anonymously through an overburdened animal control system.

Across the border, we sponsor a regular Spay/Neuter clinic to provide spay/neuter services to families who could not otherwise afford them, and through our Pererra program work to provide a humane and gentle passing to pets who have no other options.
