Petunia loves to cuddle

Sweet Doxie!

Petunia is a beautiful 2 year old purebred Dachshund. She weighs 8 lbs. and is a happy little girl who’s looking for her forever home. She is dog friendly and loves to be with people, so she’d make a wonderful companion for families or for senior citizens looking for some companionship. Petunia is very loving and is an expert cuddler! She's very smart and house trained. Petunia has received her check up with our private vet and has been fixed, microchipped, and vaccinated. If you’d like to meet Petunia, 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.
