Maya loves to cuddle!

MaltiPoo girl!

Maya is a sweet 7 yr old Maltipoo girl who almost didn't make it out of a high kill shelter. She sat in the shelter waiting to be rescued, but no one ever came. Maya is very well behaved, loves to cuddle and follow you from room to room. She's house trained, quiet and gets along well with everyone she meets. She goes to work with her foster mom, and does great! Shes friendly with other dogs, and everyone she meets. Maya has cataracts, but can get around just fine. She isn't blind, and can still see most things. We had her spayed, fully vaccinated and chipped. Maya is otherwise healthy, and would make a great addition to just about any home. She'd make a great companion to a retired person, or someone who works from home. Maya is very affectionate and devoted without being clingy. If you'd like to meet her, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $250

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.
