Layla is super sweet!

Lab girl!

Layla is a sweet and very friendly dog who loves to be with people and thrives on affection. We got her from a high kill shelter when she was placed on the euth list. She nearly didn't make it out, but now she is safe and staying with her foster family. Layla is a super smart, easy-going dog. Her foster family says she gets along well with her foster brother, who is a bulldog, and they love to play. She is loving, attentive, very calm and eager to please. She's house trained and is not a barker, so she'd be a great addition to your family. She had a few itchy spots, but has been seen by our private vet and is doing much better now. Layla is spayed, fully vaccinated, including rabies, and microchipped. She will shower you with love and devotion if you give her a chance. If you'd like to meet sweet Layla, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. The Adoption Donation is $250

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.
