Lance is very sweet!

Port Podengo

Lance is a lovely little boy rescued from a high kill shelter just in the nick of time. He's very shy, and hid at the back of the cage, which isn't the best way to get adopted. Being scared isn't a reason to be killed, so we knew we had to save him! Lance is very sweet, submissive, gets along well with other dogs and is well behaved. He's shy meeting new people, but will warm up to you if you give him a chance! He's a smart little boy, that's very eager to please! Lance is healthy, weighs about 14 lbs, and is neutered, fully vaccinated including rabies and chipped. Lance is a quiet 2 yr old boy that would do well in just about any home. He loves to cuddle, without being clingy. He'd make a great companion to a retired person, or someone who works from home. If you'd like to meet Lance, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $300

Foster Homes Needed

So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding, many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with lots of love and affection! As a foster parent, you will NOT be required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster home is a dog's life saved!

The Adoption Process

First and foremost, complete the application here.
We then schedule a quick and easy home check. We are only adopting out to the Southern California area. We save new dogs each week, so we often have dogs that we have yet to post online.
