Fanny

Fanny | Basset Hound Lab mix, 7 yr old spayed female. Available for immediate adoption

Fanny was dumped at a high kill LA shelter after she was done being used a back yard breeding dog. Maintaining her motherly instincts, Fanny tenderly loves all her foster dog siblings and even gets along great with the cats. She is quiet, loving and incredibly appreciative of any type of human love and affection. Due to the fact she had litter after litter for most of her life, she can have some trouble holding it on occasion, but is potty trained and runs towards the door, but sometime's cannot make it in time. She is on estrogen to try and help to control this and it's making a great difference for her. We were also able to remove a large fatty mass that was protruding from her leg which she is recovering beautifully from. Fanny is true gem and would do great in any home.

Dudley

Dudley | 7 yr old Shepherd/Beagle/Unicorn mix, mass removal scheduled on 10/8/19 and will be ready for immediate adoption

Dudley was brought into North Central shelter on Sept. 6 after his owner passed away and the family couldn’t keep him. Despite having lost his owner and having a mass the size of a tennis ball growing out of his leg that starts to bleed as it scrapes across the ground, Dudley is an incredibly sweet and adorable man. He will be having the mass removed and biopsied on the 8th and will be available for adoption soon after. He is incredibly loving, plays well with his foster dog and cat siblings and was a shelter staff favorite and quickly becoming one of ours! Dudley would make an absolutely wonderful addition to any home!

Stella

Stella | 1 yr old Brussels Griffon mix. Spay date 09/27/19 and will be ready for immediate adoption.

Brought in as a stray with a handful of other dogs, Stella is an adorable 1-year-old Brussels Griffon, possible Pekingese mix. We pulled her from Devore shelter and although initially a little shy, she certainly comes around and is eager for love and affection. She gets along beautifully with other dogs and will truly thrive outside of the shelter environment. She will need help with some basic training but is a smart girl and will catch on quickly!

Chief Brody

Chief Brody | 10 yr old, lab, golden retriever, cocker spaniel mix. Male, unaltered - ready for immediate adoption however needs time to recover from his upper respiratory infection

Chief Brody was owner surrendered in August, our guess because he was just too old. When we talk about wiggle butt, we do not have a senior whose butt has seen as much action as his. Brody is currently being fostered with other dog and cat siblings and is the most happy-go-lucky senior we’ve seen yet. He is grateful for love and attention and also minds himself among the group. Brody is currently on medication hoping to recover from his upper respiratory infection. He can stand to put some weight on as well but otherwise is doing beautifully. Once recovered from his URI, we will re-evaluate to see if he is healthy enough to be neutered. Chief Brody would make a wonderful addition to a calm environment home where he can spend his next few years being the front porch greeter Grandpa he deserves to be!

Hugh Jackman

09.25 update - Hugh is currently on a trial period. If you are interested in Hugh or another terrier rescue, we encourage you to fill out an adoption application should it not be the right fit or we find another terrier!

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. Hugh is catching on very quickly to basic commands and comes when called! He is incredibly active, high energy and we believe would do best in an active home where he is not left alone for too many hours at a time. 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!

Minimum Adoption Donation for Hugh Jackman is $375

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
