My story

I'm Dodger (HWTH#20275A)! I am a German Shepherd, born on 11/14/14 and I weigh 60 lbs. I arrived at Halfway to Home after I was found by a Good Samaritan as a stray dragging a leash near the aqueduct in Lake Los Angeles. My owner never claimed me so now I am looking for a forever family! I am truly "man's best friend" as I seem to be drawn to men in particular, however I am friendly with all the adults I have met. I am not sure if I get along with kids or other dogs. I love balls and other squeaky toys. I am a strong and high-energy boy, therefore obedience training is essential to ensure I learn how to walk on a leash without pulling and what is acceptable behavior. Apartments, condos, or mobile homes would not be suitable for me because I need a large fenced yard to exercise and play. I need at least 2 long walks a day, and I would love to be a jogging or hiking partner. When we aren't participating in outdoor activities, I want to be an indoor dog and treated as a member of your family. If you like what you have read and you would like more information or an appointment to meet me, please call Sandy at tele#661-824-4495 (this is a landline). Thank you!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Our adoption procedure includes an application to make sure the dog and the people will be a good match, an adoption fee to cover the cost for shots, spaying or neutering, and a home check. Halfway to Home dogs are adopted out to be part of the family, and many of them are housetrained, if not, we ask that you are willing to undertake that task. Our dogs are intended to be indoor/outdoor family members. Doggie doors are a plus.

Go meet their pets

Come and see us every Saturday & Sunday, rain or shine from 11am to 3pm at the westside Palmdale Petco, 39522 10th St. West, Suite A, just north of Target and just west of the Aldi grocery market, phone #661-267-2447.

We also are at A Better Way Pet Care in Lancaster from 10am-2pm. This location will be SATURDAY only. Located in Lancaster at 202 West Ave. J, phone #661-948-3939.

Because Petco stores and A Better Way Pet Care are currently not doing weekend adoptions because of the coronavirus we are scheduling meetings offsite. Please call Sandy 661-824-4495 (land-line phone) to arrange a meeting with the dog that interests you.

We are in need of volunteers to help out at our pet adoptions at Petco on Saturdays and Sundays or at A Better Way Pet Care on Saturdays. If interested, please visit us during our adoption hours or call Suzanne at 661-824-4393.

More about this rescue

Halfway To Home was formed in 2001 due to the need in the Antelope Valley to rescue the many homeless, helpless pets. We have animals from individuals who have to give up pets, and from animal shelters that have darling individuals who need to be spared euthanasia. There are puppies coming from individuals who did not spay and neuter in a timely manner. Your tax deductible donations can be mailed to P.O. Box 512 Rosamond, CA 93560 or you can visit us on our web site at and make a donation through PayPal.
