Maddie is well behaved!

Sweet Poodle

Maddie is a sweet little girl who's family moved to a place where they couldn't take Maddie with them. One of our volunteers spotted them dropping her off at a high kill shelter! We were able to save Maddie and take her into one of our foster homes! Maddie is very sweet, easy going and good natured. She's healthy, and we had her fully vaccinated, spayed and microchipped. Maddie weighs about 12 lbs and is about 4 yrs old. She gets along well with everyone she meets, including other dogs and children. Maddie is house trained, quiet and doesn't have any bad habits. She doesn't have any baggage or behavioral issues. If you'd like to meet Maddie, 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.
