Nova was one of the most complicated – and costly rescued to date.

We were informed about a critically ill puppy at the shelter.  Due to the shape she was in – the shelter only gave us three hours to get her out and to a vet.  Luckily one of our loyal volunteers dropped everything and drove down there – battling traffic and got her to our vet.  Nova had puppy strangles which is an autoimmune issue.  In addition to that she had multiple bite wounds that had become badly infected.  She needed emergency medical care and stayed in the hospital for several days.

She recovered from that ordeal only to break with parvo a few weeks later.  Due to a weakened immune system – it was a difficult battle for her.  But Nova is a fighter and she beat parvo too.  Now she lives with her canine brother and two moms – having the best life ever.

Marty

Looking at Marty now – you would never know the neglect and abuse he endured in his previous home.  Marty was living with a hoarder in Tijuana.  He was dirty, underweight and missing most of his fur.  A kind person got him off the streets and transported him to us here in LA.  It was […]

Looking at Marty now – you would never know the neglect and abuse he endured in his previous home.  Marty was living with a hoarder in Tijuana.  He was dirty, underweight and missing most of his fur.  A kind person got him off the streets and transported him to us here in LA.  It was not long before his charming personality landed him a forever home.  We are so happy we could be part of his journey.

Mowgli

Meet Mowgli.  This puppy was found in a shopping cart and was badly injured.  He had a broken leg and pelvis and was unable to walk. Apparently someone decided to leave him in a supermarket parking lot instead of taking him to the vet. He found his way to the shelter and someone called us […]

Meet Mowgli.  This puppy was found in a shopping cart and was badly injured.  He had a broken leg and pelvis and was unable to walk. Apparently someone decided to leave him in a supermarket parking lot instead of taking him to the vet. He found his way to the shelter and someone called us to see if we could help him – of course we said yes.   After a consultation with our orthopedic surgeon – we determined he would heal on his own. After a few weeks in a loving foster home – he was good as new.  His family found him online and drove from Colorado to adopt him.  He travels all over the country with them and has totally hit the adoption jackpot!

Vern

Meet big and beautiful Vern. We had our eye on him and his brother and were working on a rescue plan for them. Tragically his brother Curtis was euthanized at the shelter as he had run out of time. We are so happy we have a chance to save Vern but it is very bittersweet. […]

Vern is a very friendly, loving 2 year old pitbull mix. He wants to curl up into you lap and give you kisses. He is with our trainer to learn some basic obedience and decompress after a stressful MONTH of living at the shelter. We think Vern will do just fine with other dogs. He’s an active guy who would benefit from a family that will give him long walks and hikes and continue with his training.

Thank you for choosing to adopt and saving a life.
