Dolly & Pookie!


DOLLY AND POOKIE LOST THEIR DAD! FOSTER AND FOREVER HOME NEEDED! Dolly and Pookie are adorable, well behaved healthy dogs who just lost their dad. They don't really understand what happened, and could use some extra cuddles right about now! There isn't any family who can take the dogs and we need a foster or forever home in the Los Angeles area. Both dogs are very loving and devoted. They are dog friendly and well socialized. Both Dolly and Pookie are house trained, fixed up to date on vaccinations and chipped. Pookie is a 9 yr old male and Dolly is an 8 yr old female. We would love a foster or forever home together, but will consider placing them separately. These dogs have been well cared for their entire lives, and will be very easy to foster or adopt. Can you help them or know someone who can? If you live in the Los Angeles area, please email Please share their story with all your contacts! 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.
