Meet Matilda.
This pretty dog has been let down by quite a few people in her life. She was found as a stray and taken in by some kindhearted people. She slept in a bed every night with a young girl and loved her time with them but the landlord kicked her out and she ended up at a crowded shelter. Long story short – she made her way to us and is now doing great.
Matilda is a very smart, athletic dog. She will thrive with a structured environment and lots of exercise. Matilda is a rough player and and loves playing hard with other dogs. Her play style is a bit much for most dogs and for that reason we think she would do best as an only dog.
She is crate trained, house trained and walks well on leash. Wed like to find a family with breed experience for Matilda.
Please email us for more information:
Thank you for choosing to adopt and saving a life.

Adoptable Dogs


Meet Bernard. This sweet dude with the megawatt smile was dumped at the shelter because he was “too old”. Well we disagree. This mild mannered guy has lots pep in his step and deserves someone who appreciates the laid back ways of an older dog. He is about 10 years old – house trained and […]

Harold Halfpint

Meet Harold. The first part of his life was not so sweet. He was left in a dirty yard with no bed, treats, walks or affection. One day his former owners tired of him and the other dogs and said they would be heading to the shelter. Several rescues stepped in to help and Howard […]


Meet Lucie. This 7 lb, 3 year old bearded lady is pretty much perfect. She does well with cats and dogs and is sweet with kids too. She likes going for walks and snuggling on the couch. She is house trained and not destructive in the house. A wonderful, itty bitty companion looking for her […]


Meet Rocky. This 4 year old shepherd mix is only 40 lbs and has been described as one of the sweetest dogs of all times. Hes gentle and quiet and good with all dogs – we think he would do fine with a cat as well. He is house trained and walks well on leash. […]


Meet Myla. She is a 10 month old, Malinois mix who was surrendered to us when her former family no longer wanted to take care of her. As is typical with the breed – she’s smart and athletic and eager to please. She would benefit from a family that would like to do some training […]


Meet Anastasia. She is a purebred Border Collie puppy who was found at a rural shelter with a broken femur and covered in ticks. We were able to get her to LA and directly into surgery to repair her leg. She is now in a foster home and doing well. She’s very sweet and loyal […]



Monkey came into the shelter in rough shape.  One look at him and it was clear he had spent the first part of his young life deprived of medical care and – kindness.  He was suffering from a severe case of mange, his lymph nodes were swollen and he had secondary infections. We took care […]


Henderson was found lying on the street – he was on the verge of death. His skeletal body was brought to the shelter where they sent out an email blast for rescues to help this very ill puppy.  He was suffering from bacterial pneumonia. After 5 days in the hospital – he went to a […]


We saw Turducken’s photo at the Lancaster shelter.  She was emaciated and totally shut down.  It was clear her former life had been one of neglect and sadness.  We wanted to turn things around for her. After we got her the required medical care – she began to put weight on.  Her gentle, loving personality […]
