My story

A good Samaritan took in Romeo, a 6 yr old lab pit mix and his pal Poppy is a 13 years old dachshund chihuahua mix when the owner decided to take them to the shelter. This happens a lot where the dogs are starting to slow down i.e. start to age. The person who saved them from certain death at the shelter unfortunately can't keep them. If you can please open your heart and home to Poppy and maybe his pal, Romeo they will give never ending love in return!

They are located in the South Bay and if you would like to meet Romeo and or Poppy please send an email to

More about this rescue

SCT Retrievers started because of a need to give all breeds pure or mixed, large or small, old or young another chance to have a loving forever home. This is a very small organization and totally depends on private donations to help support the needs of the pets rescued. All donations go to the direct support and care of the pets rescued and are tax deductible.

We also need beds for our rescues - click link to donate
