Tilly is friendly!

Happy MaltiPoo

Tilly is a 7 years old Maltese/Poodle/Terrier mix girl we rescued from a high kill shelter. She has gorgeous, very soft fur. Tilly is super sweet, smart and dog-friendly – she’s a bit underweight, but her foster mom is helping her by preparing delicious meals for her. She has a skin and ear infection that is being treated, which is very common for dogs who have been living on the streets. Our private vet has prescribed her medication that has cleared up the problem, and her fur is growing back in nicely. Tilly is such a happy, playful and devoted little dog – she’d be a great fit for just about anyone. She loves to socialize, and very loving. Tilly isn't hyper and doesn't have any bad habits like barking, digging or chewing. She is spayed, vaccinated and chipped, and is awaiting her forever home. If you’d like to meet Tilly, 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.
