Perry is a happy boy!

Poodle mix

Perry is a wonderful 2 yr old Poodle mix boy who got lost from his family, and ended up in a high kill shelter. Perry patiently waited for his family to save him, but no one ever came. We were able to save Perry just in the nick of time! Perry is very sweet, house trained, and healthy! Perry loves to play fetch, is good natured and affectionate. Perry is a very happy and well behaved little boy. He loves to cuddle by your side, or play quietly with his toys. He will bring a lot of joy into any home. Perry isn't hyper like some small dogs, and would be fine in a home of all ages, including seniors. He doesn't have any destructive habits like digging or chewing. Perry is being fostered with 2 other dogs, but tries to be the alpha, so would do best as an only dog, or with a submissive dog. Perry has been neutered, fully vaccinated including rabies, and microchipped. Perry weighs about 12 lbs. If you'd like to meet Perry, 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.
