The Dexter Foundation: Serving Los Angeles County and Southern California
We are dedicated to rescuing dogs in the Southern California Area and placing them in a loving, forever home.

Skylar is just a puppy!


Skylar is a 12 week old puppy looking for a forever home. Skylar, his mom and two siblings were being dropped off at a high kill shelter just after July 4th. The shelter was completely full, and said they could not accept them, except for immediate euthanasia. Fortunately, one of our volunteers was there, and we were able to save them! Mom looks like a Brussels Griffon. We have had all puppies checked by a vet, vaccinated, dewormed and chipped. We will have them fixed when it's time. Skylar weighs about 5 lbs, is very sweet and friendly. If you'd like to meet him, or the other puppies or mom, please complete our adoption application found on We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $350

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.
