Dodger loves to play!

Toy Fox/Rat Mix

Dodger is just about a year old and looking for a buddy to play with! Dodger is a happy, active, playful little boy who ended up in a high kill shelter, and nearly didn't make it out alive. Fortunately, our volunteer saw his adorable face when she rescued another dog, and just couldn't get him out of her mind! Dodger has a lot of energy like all young dogs, and would do best in a home with another small dog to play with, and someone who has the time and experience to train a puppy. He's very smart, lively and devoted. Dodger weighs about 15 lbs, is neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you'd like to meet Dodger, 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.
