Jack

Jack - 10 yr old Cocker Spaniel neutered male - available for immediate adoption.

Jack was on death’s door step at Lancaster Shelter. Having been at the shelter for over a month hidden away in medical, did a shelter volunteer finally realize Jack had been red listed and wasn’t even visible to the public nor was his photo or information available online. Pulling Jack we knew he had oral masses protruding from both sides of his mouth. The surprising news was that he may have ring worm and was owner surrendered with maggot clusters on his masses and over his face. Jack was immediately taken to our vets where he spent three days in isolation boarding until we received his ring worm results back testing negative! We are waiting for the cytology reports to come back for Jack’s masses and he will soon be getting his most likely first ever dental, but other than that Jack is a very healthy senior spaniel.

Like any other gentle Grandpa, Jack enjoys his walks, sniffing around and napping. His mellow demeanor is passive, appreciative and loving. Jack would make an amazing therapy dog and cuddle buddy, is potty trained, gets along well with other dogs and cats! He is looking for his final forever home where he can hang up his hat and rest his legs after a leisurely walk with his hooman.

Minimum adoption donation for Jack is $350

Hugh Jackman

Hugh Jackman - 2.5 yr old Carin Terrier mix, neutered male - ready for immediate adoption

We pulled Hugh from West Valley shelter as they were at capacity and he came in with 12 other dogs from a hoarding case. Hugh is an absolute bundle of joy, eager to please and lives for affection. He is being fostered with other dogs and cats and gets along with everyone. It is clear he is just learning the about luxuries of doggie life as he layed in a dog bed for the first time instead of normally sleeping right next to it. He is still adjusting and getting used to the leash and needs some guidance in potty training but he’s incredibly smart and is catching on quickly. He loves to sleep on his foster Mom’s pillow with her and does not bark when his foster siblings do. Hugh is a true catch and any family would be lucky to include this little angel in their lives!

Herbie

Herbie - 8 yr old Schnauzer/Terrier mix, neutered male - ready for immediate adoption

Herbie came into Baldwin Park shelter as a stray. Like many senior dogs with medical issues, they are often released close to shelters so someone else will pick them and bring them into the shelter. Herbie was brought in with no chip and a bleeding bum. Herbie was sleeping when we walked by his kennel but we could tell this Grandpa was in need of some serious help and couldn’t bear to leave him there one more day.

At the vet’s office, Herbie had to be sedated to examine his bum area because of how sensitive it was. Herbie either has an abscess which will heal with antibiotics or an anal tumor which will need to be surgically removed. We will find out this week the status of the infected area. Other than needing a dental, Herbie is in excellent shape and has the spirit of a spry guy. He is mild mannered and adores affection. His sweet demeanor and gratitude for a loving home outside of the shelter is incredibly apparent. Herbie would do beautifully in a home as an only dog, or with other dogs and with out cats. He is currently being fostered with both male and female fur-siblings and is getting along great with everyone.

Minimum Adoption Donation for Herbie is $350

Sunny

Sunny - 10 yr old Shih Tzu, unaltered male - recovering from bronchitis, an upper respiratory infection and kennel cough. Uncertain if Jacobo was going to be able to pull through because of his condition, our vet suggested giving him a week on anti-biotics and time outside of the shelter environment to see if he would improve. That evening after a bath, he became a new dog. Full of spirit and curiosity, we knew instantly this little man has the will to live!

Sunny has received double eye enucleation surgery (eye removal) as one eye is hemorrhaged and the other is on its way, a full dental with multiple extractions, and neutered. He has an enlarged tumor in one testicle from its shape, size and firmness could possibly be cancerous. The vet is hoping with its removal will also be any cancer it had with it.

While Sunny has a laundry list of complications he has proven to be a fighter, a lover and deeply appreciative of pets, affection and love. We pulled Jacobo as he was running out of time at Downey shelter. He had been sitting in his own filth, matted fur in a small cage in medical at Downey for month with every rescue and person passing him by due to all his health issues. We could not let him spend one more day suffering in a cell and boy are we glad to be able to give this guy a great shot a final, loving forever home.

While Sunny will need to undergo these surgeries with our foundation, we are at this time accepting adoption applications for him. We expect a full recovery from Sunny with a long life a head.

Gustave

Gustave - 6 yr old, male, neutered Husky - ready for immediate adoption.

We pulled Gustave the Husky out of South LA Shelter during the Woolsey fires to make room. He was the saddest dog there, in horrible shape with chronic skin infections, anal tumors and mystery wounds. The staff called him Ghost dog. His time was up. It has been a long journey of getting strong, healthy and learning to be a dog, but Gustave has become the floofiest Husky you’ll ever meet. He is incredibly smart and needs a home with a dedicated, savvy person or people that understand the complexities of the working breed. Gustave is presently in training with the renowned behaviorist Steffen Baldwin to work on his fear aggression with strangers entering his home and resource guarding.

He loves physical and mental stimulation, going for walks and cuddling. Gustave is a good boy when left alone, is quiet and house trained. He is super affectionate and loyal to anyone he knows. He has lived in foster with a variety of dogs, but does best with bigger dogs that aren’t dominant. He would do best without kids and definitely no cats or small pets. He is 6 or 7, good on leash and knows not only basic commands, but some impressive tricks as well.

Minimum Adoption Donation for Gustave is $375

Birdie

Birdie - 6 years old, spayed, Cheagle (Beagle/Chihuahua mix) ready for immediate adoption.

Birdie is a beautiful, spayed, very calm, female Beagle/Chihuahua mix we rescued from death row at Downey shelter. Birdie was brought to the shelter along with her brother, another Chihuahua, by her owner's family after her owner was hospitalized. When their owner was released from the hospital, he went back to the shelter to only claim Birdie's brother and left Birdie alone in the shelter. Birdie was by herself for a week at Downey shelter while everyone waited for her owner to come back and claim her. After 7 days of being unclaimed, we could not let Birdie spend one more minute in there alone, rescuing her, giving her a new name and fresh start to life where our promise to her is that from now on, she will always be loved.

In the time she has been at her fosters, Birdie has truly come out of her shell and has proven to be an incredibly sweet and loving girl. Birdie is being fostered with a young child and other dogs and is doing great with both. As Birdie lived her life with her brother and is currently being fostered with other dogs as well, we believe Birdie would do best in a home with another dog(s) as she is much more relaxed and confident. She learned the ropes quite quickly on potty training. At first, Birdie had no idea what a leash was or how to walk on it, now Birdie gets excited when the leash comes out and loves walks. Birdie still is shy and timid but loves to be held and will crawl right into your lap for cuddles. It doesn't get any sweeter than sweet Birdie.

Minimum Adoption Donation for Birdie is $350.

Derp

Derp - 13 years old, neutered chihuahua male - ready for immediate adoption

Pulled from Downey shelter, Derp was literally getting pushed to the back of his run by his run mates. Completely submissive, head and tail down, he walked to the back of the run knowing he was too little and too weak to get any attention through the excitement and energy of the other dogs. Derp was brought in a stray with the only two teeth remaining being completely diseased and dead. A day after we pulled Derp, one of his teeth actually fell out on its own. Derp since has had surgery to remove his final diseased tooth and was also neutered. Derp has shown nothing but love, affection and appreciation to his foster family since he was pulled from the shelter. Derp has 4 other senior foster dog siblings and 3 cat siblings. Derp has proven to love being the center of attention and can get a little jealous of others getting attention. He will walk right up and try to put himself in between you and whoever you’re petting. He would do best in a situation where the other dog/s are not dominant.

Derp's foster family believes Derp would also do very well around children. Derp rarely barks even though his foster siblings are always barking and is loving all the dog beds he gets to choose from. We believe Derp was kept outside his entire life and literally lights up when he realizes there is another dog bed to sleep in and more treats than he's ever had. He's smart, grateful and would truly make an amazing addition to any home.

Minimum Adoption Donation for Derp is $150
