The Dexter Foundation: Serving Los Angeles County and Southern California
We are dedicated to rescuing dogs in the Southern California Area and placing them in a loving, forever home.

Kayla is very sweet!


Kayla is a sweet little girl who nearly died in a high kill shelter. She got lost from her family and waited for them to save her. No one ever came. Kayla was so frightened, that she cowered in the back of the cage, which isn't the best way to get adopted. Add to it that it's harder for black dogs to get adopted and you have a recipe for tragedy! When we heard that Kayla was put on the euthanasia list, we knew we could let her die! She is now safely in one of our foster homes, and she is thriving! She gets along well with her foster siblings, and is well behaved. Kayla can be a little shy initially, but warms up very quickly. Considering all that she's been through, she has a happy, sweet and loving personality. She'd make a loyal companion to just about everyone. Kayla isn't barky or hyper the way some small dogs can be. She is healthy, about 2 yrs old and weighs just 10 lbs. Kayla is spayed, fully vaccinated including rabies and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Kayla, and live in the Southern California area, please complete our adoption application found on Adoption donation $275

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.
