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.


Boston mix!

Tyson is a 2 yr old dog rescued from a high kill shelter on his last day. He is great around people, including strangers and kids. Tyson is happy, playful and house trained. He isn't barky or happy and doesn't have any destructive habits like digging or chewing. Tyson walks nicely on a leash, is fine meeting dogs on walks, and is generally well behaved. However, Tyson does not like to share with other dogs living in the home and needs to be an only dog. He is healthy, neutered, weighs about 50 lbs, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Tyson and live in the Los Angeles area, please complete our adoption application found on Adoption donation $200

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.
