Pickles is a sweet girl!

Jack Russell!

Pickles is a very sweet little girl looking for a new forever home. She waited at a high kill shelter for her family to rescue her, but no one ever came. When her time ran out, we were able to save her in the nick of time. Pickles weighs about 10 lbs, is 8 yrs old and is healthy and well behaved. She rides nicely in the car and doesn't pull on the leash on walks. Pickles is being fostered with children and is fine meeting other dogs. She had a skin infection from her time at the shelter, but it's being treated now and she'll be good as new. We had her spayed, fully vaccinated and chipped. If you'd like to meet her, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $200.

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.
