My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

Lola came to us in the middle of whelping puppies. Someone reached out to us telling us a stray was giving birth outside their home. It was 8:30 PM and I had just pulled into my driveway... I had been out doing home visits. I asked the person if she could please just take mama and pups in and put them in a safe place for the night. She refused saying that she would not let them into her home.

Being late October, it was too cold for newborn pups to spend the night outside.

I made a few phone calls. I secured a foster home. My teen-aged daughter and I got into the car and headed out to pick up mama and pups.

The people had placed mama and pups in a 24" hard plastic kennel that was WAY TOO SMALL. Lola laid on two of her puppies, killing them.

Lola was very agitated when we got there. I would be agitated too if I was shoved into a kennel that was so small I could not even move.... Let alone she also had her newborn puppies in there with her!

We loaded her into our van and then removed the top of the kennel. Lola was in "mama bear" mode.... not wanting anyone to get near her puppies.

We drove them to an amazing foster home near El Paso and got them settled in,

We scanned her for a microchip and were surprised to find that she has one. I called the owner and was told that they had moved and "gave her away" to someone. But, they did not have info on who they gave her to.

We assume that they moved and just left her behind!

Fast forward... Lola's two surviving puppies, Sushi and Wasabi, were adopted together by an amazing couple.

It is Lola's turn. She is a VERY LOVING girl who gets along great with other dogs.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

After filling our our required Adoption Application, we will schedule a home visit. The home visit is to make sure our dog gets along with any existing pets in the home. We also check for obvious hazards and make sure the yard is secure.

If everything checks out OK, the next step is the Adoption Agreement, which finalizes the adoption. There is an adoption fee for each dog. (All dogs are spayed/neutered, up to date on vaccinations and micro-chipped.)

After the adoption is complete, there are follow-up wellness checks to make sure everything is working out for the adopters and the adopted dog.

At any time after the adoption is finalized, if the adopter decides to get rid of the dog, it must be returned to Cherished K-9 All Breed Rescue.

Go meet their pets

We have bi-monthly adoption events at different venues. Please contact us to find out the location of our next event.

More about this rescue

Big or small we love them all!

Our mission is to rescue and re-home neglected, abused and abandoned dogs.

We are a small rescue that picks up dogs off the streets and helps them find their homes or helps them find new homes.

We also help find homes for dogs that have been relinquished by their owners. In addition, we pull last-chance dogs from our local animal shelter.

Our goal is to assist the rescue community in our area in decreasing the euthanasia rate at the shelter.

Our dogs live in foster homes while waiting to be adopted. Our fosters love and care for them as if they are their own dogs.

We cannot do what we do without your help! Foster, Adopt or Donate today!

If you are interested in fostering or adopting one of our dogs, please email us at
