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.


Shih Tzu boy!

Oreo is happy Shih Tzu rescued from a high kill shelter in the nick of time. He got lost from his family and waited for someone to save him, but they never did. Oreo was a dirty matted mess, so we treated him to a spa day. He is a happy, healthy young dog. He has a great personality and is very loving. Oreo is house trained and dog friendly. Oreo's foster mom is teaching him how to use the doggie door. We had Oreo seen by our private vet and he is doing great. He has the most adorable underbite and will be gorgeous once his fur grows back. Oreo is fully vaccinated, neutered and microchipped. He weighs about 16 lbs. If you live in the Los Angeles area and would like to meet Oreo, please complete our adoption application found on 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.
