Hi there! My name is Buster and I am a 5-year-old Sheltie/Border Collie mix. I am a serene, low-key guy with a twinkle in my eye and a heart of gold. I love people, kids, and other dogs and I am told I would probably be fine with cats too, as I am so mellow and submissive. I am just really happy and not much bothers me or lets me down! I bond quickly but not exclusively - I pretty much like everyone I meet and will curl up contentedly by your side while you're reading or watching TV. I also really like being outside - I could walk around smelling leaves, flowers, and grass forever - but I'll follow your lead when you're ready to go!
I was rescued from the Baldwin Park Shelter, and thank goodness for that - because as it turns out I had come in with a bad hernia that had to be fixed. The nice rescue people took me in and made sure I would be taken care of because other than that I am completely healthy (I have great teeth and lovely soft coat!) and have a lot of years to give. I am now on the mend in a wonderful foster home, but looking for a forever loving home of my own.
Please email email@example.com or call 323-810-9948 if you'd like to know more about me!
Rescue Group Info...
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.
Please contact the Volunteer Adoption Coordinator listed in the ad for more information. (Please note that you are calling a volunteer, not a facility.)
For pets that are part of our Shelter Support Program at either the Baldwin Park or Downey shelters, you may also contact or visit the shelter directly. For more information on our Shelter Support Program, visit http://www.unitedhope4animals.org/about-us/shelter-support-program/.
The adoption process for UHA foster pets requires an application, phone interview, and home check.

We are based in the San Gabriel Valley and work with adopters throughout Los Angeles and Southern California.
