The Dexter Foundation: Serving Los Angeles County and Southern California
We are dedicated to rescuing dogs in the Southern California Area and placing them in a loving, forever home.


Bichon boy!

Murphy is a gorgeous 4 yr old boy looking for a new home. Murphy's mom was just diagnosed with cancer, and doesn't have the time or energy for him. Sadly, Murphy needs to find a new forever home. Murphy weighs just 24 lbs, is healthy, up to date on vaccinations, and is chipped and neutered. He's an alpha, so needs to go to an adult home with an experienced dog owner. Murphy is fully house trained, walks nicely on a leash without pulling, and rides well in the car. Murphy needs time to get to know you first, but quickly warms up. His ideal home would be a single woman, over 40 yrs old, in a house with a yard. Please email if you'd like to meet him. We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. No children or other dogs. Adoption donation $250

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.
