Our primary goal is to place all of our rescues into forever loving homes.

Our adoption questionnaire helps us learn about you, your home, your lifestyle

and level of experience so we can find the perfect dog for you and your family.


We ask potential adopters to submit the questionnaire prior to scheduling an

appointment to meet our adoptable dogs. 

The rescue incurs significant costs for every dog, including:

Vet visits and medical care, surgeries, vaccines, deworming, flea meds,

spay/neuter, microchipping, transportation, food and supplements etc..

The adoption fees don't fully cover these costs, so our rescue

primarily relies on additional support of our donors!


Cooper is a 14-year-old Pomeranian who

came to us from San Diego due to divorce.

He's a little dog with a big heart! 

He's ready to explore new places by paws

and car. He's a social butterfly who loves

scratches and pets, but pick up his

leash and he's ready to go!

Cooper suffers from multiple health issues,

including heart murmur (grade 4/6), 

bilateral MPLs (grade 2/4), arthritis

and he needs to gain more weight. 

Due to his age and health conditions,

Cooper is not a candidate for adoption,

but is looking for compassionate sponsors 

and donors to help the rescue care for him.

Would you like to sponsor dogs

like Cooper? He needs your help,

so please consider a donation today.

is initially shy with new people,

walks and car rides. He's also a burrower

Zeus is a 7-year-old, 70 lbs., active,

fun-loving dog looking for a family

who understands a rough and tumble,

hiking, ball playing kinda guy.


He gets along well with other dogs and

another large, friendly dog in the home

would be great to keep this active guy busy.

He does not do well with small children due

to his rough play style. Please no cats or

other small animals, as he loves to

chase and bark at them!


He's had a rough past and currently working

on sitting patiently and calm greetings.

He walks great on leash and is learning

to play fetch and drop it.


Zeus needs an owner who has a big heart

and lots of time and who can continue

with his training!


Cute, fun and smart are all wrapped up

in this little 5 lbs. dog named Zorro!

Zorro is 5 years young, good with kids,

a good listener and eager to please.


He loves to just hang out nearby, play

with toys and dogs his size. He would do

best in a home with another dog.

Zorro likes to go for walks and is

getting used to car rides.

He can use a door and go out potty 

on his own. He prefers to sleep in

his own dog bed next to yours.

If you like to meet Zorro, please

fill out our adoption questionnaire.

Bri is a 4-year-old Pit Bull Terrier mix

who absolutely LOVES people and would

spend her whole day cuddling with you

if she could.


Some of her favorite things are toys

(especially the squeaky kind), belly rubs,

giving kisses, riding in the car and meeting

new people – everyone who meets her

instantly falls in love!

Bri needs to be the only animal in the

home as she is dog reactive and has

shown high prey drive on her walks.

Bri walks well on leash and would do

great with kids over the age of 10.


If you like to arrange a meet and greet

with Bri, please fill out our 

adoption questionnaire.
