My story

Meet Nigel! This dapper little dude is one of sweetest, most endearing dogs we’ve ever met. Nigel is 15-years old and weighs 6-lbs, though we are hoping to put some healthy weight on him. He loves to be held close and melts into your arms

Nigel was found as a stray and taken to the shelter.Nigel went straight to our vet for a full senior workup and as soon as he’s healthy enough he will have a dental and probably lose his few remaining teeth.

Nigel also has early stage kidney disease and we have started him on supplements, a special diet and subq fluids.

Nigel will make the ultimate little companion, perfectly portable and ready to go wherever you go. Bowties included.

Nigel is up to date on shots, microchipped, blood work, UA and fecal test.

Adoption process includes application, interview, home visit, contract and donation.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

Each potential adopter of any animal is required to go through an adoption process that includes an application, contract and interview with one or more of our members. We make sure the potential adopter is aware of the medical, training and social needs of the animal; whether it is a growing puppy or an older animal. If the individual is approved, we will perform a home check to make sure that animal is going to a safe and good environment. The adopter agrees to return the animal to us at any point during their lifetime if they intend to give it up. We are committed to finding these animals great homes and screen our applicants very carefully.

Go meet their pets

We show our adoptable animals at Petco every first and third Saturday from 11 AM - 3 PM. Petco is located at 852 N Western Ave, San Pedro, CA 90732.

More about this rescue

Thousands of animals are euthanized each year in the Los Angeles City Shelters. This staggering figure doesn’t even include all other surrounding LA County shelters. Most of these animals were highly adoptable and have something in common: they have medical conditions such as broken legs, tumors, eye problems, skin issues or illness. These animals have been hit by cars, abused, or suffered serious neglect, or they are abandoned mothers with litters of unweaned puppies. These shelter animals face an uncertain future. H.E.L.P assists adopters who are interested in a sick, elderly or injured shelter animal, but are discouraged by the potential high veterinary costs. We also assist individuals who adopt from the shelters and discover that their animal has a medical condition after adoption. We arrange for the animal to receive veterinary care and offer financial assistance to the adopter. If the adopter has already arranged for the animal to receive medical care, we reimburse the costs upon receipt of the veterinary bill and proof of treatment.
