Bitsy Johnson was found roaming in traffic on the streets of LA with no collar or microchip and, after 3 weeks with no one claiming her, she entered our adoption program. Bitsy has not looked back since being rescued! She was far too busy learning about life indoors in a loving foster home, with other dogs for company, learning to trust people again, to play with her new 4-legged friends, to relax and enjoy life. She is a sweet, quiet girl who loves to snuggle and cuddle more than anything. She is now potty and crate trained, and enjoys playing with toys. We suspect that Bitsy experienced neglect or abuse in per past because she was fearful of new people at first. She’s much better with new people now but loud noises can still frighten her so she will require patience from her new family in order to help her feel safe and secure, but she is ready to meet special someone and to continue her journey with them.

All of our amazing dogs are fully vetted, fixed, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. They are then fostered by one of our experienced foster volunteers, who are able to assess temperament and personality and begin any necessary training. An adoption application, adoption fee, and home check are required for adoption.
Not 100% certain whether you're ready to commit to pet ownership? Consider fostering one of our amazing dogs. It is a crucial piece of the rescue process, and you can play a huge part in saving a dog's life, all the while deciding if that dog, or any dog, is the right fit for your lifestyle! If you know you can't be a forever owner but want to help out and get a little puppy love in return, this may be just the thing for you!
All supplies, food and veterinary care are provided to the foster by the rescue. No costs involved to you - just provide a safe and loving environment and we will do the rest! Fostering can be as short- or long-term as you would like, and we can place dogs with you that are conducive to your lifestyle and preferences (small, large, hypoallergenic, etc.)
