Morris is very sweet!

Lab/Golden mix!

Morris is a sweet 7 yr old Lab/ Golden mix looking for a new home. He got lost from his family and taken to a high kill shelter. Morris waited and waited for his family to come and save him, but no one ever did. We were able to save him just in the nick of time. Morris has a very easy going personality and is great with kids and other dogs. Morris is friendly, mellow and well behaved. He's house trained, healthy and loving. Morris doesn't have any destructive habits like digging. chewing or barking. He's friendly when meeting new people, walks nicely on a leash and rides well in the car. He'd be great to take on hikes or jogging. Morris is a wonderful family dog and would make a great dog for first-time dog owners. He has the most expressive caramel colored eyes, and is very smart. Morris is eager to please and learns very quickly. We had him examined by our vet, and he is perfectly healthy. We're having his teeth cleaned, and he is neutered, fully vaccinated including rabies and microchipped. He weighs only 68 lbs. If you'd like to meet Morris, 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.
