My story

Matilda is an interesting breed fusion - Poodle-Chinese Crested-Xoloitzcuintle-Chihuahua-Terrier



Matilda was rescued from an abandonment situation. The owners were evicted, and even though they had a place to stay that would let them take all their animals (3 dogs, farm animals too), they left them anyway. The dogs were formally relinquished to us once we explained to them that they should not just give for free to strangers that might use them for abuse, dog fighting bait, breeding, or just people that won't comply with county dog laws.



The 3 female dogs were not fixed, microchipped, nothing. Our rescue has done all that.



The adoption fee will include spay, deworming, grooming twice, all canine & rabies vaccinations, microchipping and registration.



Matilda is about 3.5 years old and sibling to Molly. She's house trained, very sweet and cuddly, although shy at first.



She will only go to a home that will allow her to live inside and be walked outside to potty. Being outside unsupervised subjects her to being attacked by wild animals, stolen, escape.



Please text to this phone number 661-236-6553 your application (as well as to share@c-a-r-e-s.org), and pictures of your fence, gates, in-house doggy set-up, grounds. Adoption payment is cash only.

Fee (cash only) includes spay-neuter, vaccinations, deworming, microchipping. Microchipping only for dogs, but $20 extra for aother animals

6.

Take the Pet Home

If a puppy or kitten is too young to be fixed and rabies vaccinated, they must go to a veterinarian of our choosing M-F 8-9:00 a.m.

Additional adoption info

Our adoption fees for dogs normally run from $350 to $650 for dogs that need a lot of grooming, oftentimes more for puppies and pure breeds. Adoption fees are usually less for kittens/cats ($100-200). Our fees are higher if a lot of medical treatments are incurred (teeth cleaning, X-rays, blood tests, grooming, or we get the animals fixed where we get puppies.

CARES does have a contract and we do a house check. The requirements are pretty standard for most animal rescues. We thoroughly investigate the potential home situation to ensure that the animal will be happy and safe, and that the new caretakers are satisfied with their new family member.

Adoption application

Go meet their pets

CARES is in Lake Los Angeles, CA (E. Lancaster). We occasionally have a booth at events such as World Dog Day in West Hollywood; Bark at the Park in Lancaster; and at our Sanctuary in Lake Los Angeles (E. Lancaster).

Come see us at our adoption days on weekends at the 47th St. E. PetSmart in Palmdale, CA. Most of the time we are there on Saturdays from 11:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., but occasionally on a Sunday (same hours). Four times a year we are there for 3-day National Adoption Weekends. The next one will be 9/13-15/19.

More about this rescue

Share Bond has been doing animal rescue, community outreach programs, media work, teaching at wildlife, companion animal and animal rights conferences all over the US. We at CARES help all animals in one way or another and are not speciesists. We have specialists in all areas needed at our rescue facility. CARES is also a sanctuary for non-placeable animals (deaf, senior animals, special needs) and we make sure that each and every animal has plenty of space, mental enrichment, attention, and a clean environment with the best food possible.

I chose to do this work because it is needed. We all owe it to the animals. Our important programs (Animal Crime Watch, Neighborhood Watch For Animals, Stray-Free Lake LA, TNR+, Humane Wildlife Solutions, etc.) are desperately needed. Someone needs to get through to the general public.
