Lily lost her mom

MaltiPoo girl!

Sweet Lily and her mom were out for their usual walk when a distracted driver struck them. Lily's mom was able to shield her, but her mom did not survive. Lily doesn't understand what happened, and now needs a new place to live. The family tried to take care of Lily, but they work long hours, and aren't really able to give her the attention and care she deserves. Lily is a quiet and well behaved dog, and could use someone who has the time to spend with her. She's about 7 yrs old, perfectly healthy, and house trained. This tragic story deserves a happy ending! Lily needs a foster or forever home asap! If you live in the Los Angeles area and can take Lily into your home, please email We're only adopting to the Southern California area. Adoption donation required.

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.
