Corgi mix

Keyanna is a very sweet dog who was being given away in front of a supermarket by her owners. They lived in an apartment that did not allow dogs, but decided to get a dog from the shelter anyway. Needless to say, the landlord found out and they were asked to give up Keyanna or move. People don't realize how dangerous it is to give away a dog to a total stranger. Fortunately for Keyanna, one of our volunteers was shopping and was able to take her home. Keyanna is a young, healthy well behaved dog. She is very smart, loving and devoted. She is house trained, spayed and vaccinated. Keyanna hasn't fully learned to share yet, so would do best as an only dog or with a submissive dog. She doesn't have any destructive habits like barking, digging or chewing. We need a foster or forever home in the Los Angeles area. Please complete our adoption application on if you can foster or adopt Keyanna. She is a good dog and will make a loving companion. Thanks!

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.
