My story

Leia is a cutie with a spotted tongue, one ear up/one down combo and the most expressive eyebrows! She is a large girl at 75lbs but is a big baby! She has only been in one home and coming to our rescue was a big change for her! Leia is a little nervous when first meeting new people, but it doesn't take long before she is your loyal buddy. She is very playful, snuggly and loves to give kisses! She gets along well with our other large dogs and has been submissive to all of them but she hasn't figured out how to play with them. She would be happy to have a large dog sibling or be the only pup in your home. She met our cats, but has a prey drive and we were told she has chased cats in the past so a home without kitties is a must. We are looking for a fun, active home where she could go hiking or on other adventures with her person. Leia is a young, active girl who really wants to please. She is already housebroken, loves her crate (it's her safe space) and she does well in a car! She gets very excited when you first come home and tends to jump up (which we are working on), and she could benefit from some continued training. Because of this, we think a home with older kids or no children would be best. After her initial excitement when you get home, she does calm down and will lounge on the couch to watch tv. She just needs some exercise to be a happy, well-behaved girl! Leia is 2 years old, spayed and up to date on vaccines and microchipped so she is ready to be adopted immediately. If you're interested in meeting Leia, please submit an adoption application at

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Go to our website to fill out an Adoption Application! We will review your app and, if your home is a good match for the pet, we well email you to set up a meeting with your family and current pets. If all goes well at the meeting, we offer a foster to adopt program where you can take home the pet you're interested in for up to two weeks to make sure he/she is a good fit for your home and is welcomed by your other current animals. We just ask that you leave the adoption fee as a deposit before taking your pet home. Any time within the two weeks, if you decide the pet is a perfect addition to your family, let us know and sign the Adoption Contract, we will hand over all vaccine paperwork, and the pet is yours! (If you decide the pet is not for you, the deposit will be returned in full) Adoption Fees: $400 for puppies (6mo or younger) $350 for adult dogs $250 for senior dogs (8+years) $150 for kittens (6mo or younger) $125 for adult cats $100 for senior cats

Go meet their pets

Potential adopters must submit an application before setting up a private meeting with that specific animal. Once application is reviewed, we will email to make arrangements to set the date/time. We ask that the entire family and current pets are present. Meetings are held at the animals location or at your home. We also have adoption shows occasionally where you can come down and meet some of our adoptable pets. Please check our Facebook page at to find out when our next show will be!

More about this rescue

Domino Effect Animal Rescue is a 501c3 non profit, no kill animal rescue located in Temecula Valley, California dedicated to saving the lives of animals in county shelters. By taking in some of these homeless animals, we hope to ease the overcrowding in shelters which leads to euthanasia. We provide care and love to all animals that enter our rescue as they await their loving, forever homes. Each animal is spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and examined by a licensed veterinarian. Some animals require more medical care than the basics and we help them heal so that they can live healthy lives with their next family. We also work on basic obedience and socialization skills to help each pet develop desired behaviors for their future family.
