Cookie is a Wonder! She survived a fall from a 4th story window (her pelvis, sacrum, hips and tail were shattered) but this girl’s spirit is HUGE and could not be broken! Cookie is friendly, loving and ever so sweet. She is on the road to healing with treatments at C.A.R.E. (where she boards Wednesday through Friday each week) with some added home therapy and rest. Within a couple of short weeks of starting rehab Cookie was able to stand on her own for short periods of time which is nothing short of miraculous. We are committed to her recovery but she has been fitted with wheels so that she can enjoy being mobile and racing around with her pals as she continues to heal. And boy does she ever LOVE zipping around in her new cart! Due to Cookie’s special needs, her adopter (or kind foster) will be someone wanting to embrace learning so they can be an active participant in her rehabilitation.
We are currently looking for a part time foster or permanent adopter - she will be home Friday afternoon through Wednesday morning, as she will go to rehab center in Santa Monica Wed through Friday.

Shelter Driving Directions
Please check our website for the next adoption event!
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.)
