We are dedicated to rescuing dogs in the Southern California Area and placing them in a loving, forever home.

Arlo is a happy boy!

Cairn Terrier!

Arlo is a gorgeous Cairn Terrier found wandering the streets of LA. When no one claimed him at the shelter, one of our volunteers was able to rescue him. Arlo is safely in one of our foster homes and doing great! He gets along well with his foster brothers, and is friendly to everyone he meets. Arlo loves to give kisses and cuddle, but isn't needy or clingy. He is perfectly happy to entertain himself playing with his toys. Arlo is very smart and has an amazing personality. He is well behaved and doesn't have any destructive habits. Arlo is about a year old and weighs 14 lbs. This little gem of a dog is looking for a forever home in the Los Angeles area. We had Arlo neutered, fully vaccinated and chipped. If you'd like to meet Arlo, please complete our adoption application found on dexter foundation.com 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.
