Who We Are

Our group's goal is to save sweet, adoptable pets from the high volume shelters of Los Angeles. As many as can be saved we place into foster homes and keep them safe and happy until they are adopted into permananet homes.
You can help by going to the City and County Shelters in Los Angeles and adopting a new member for your family. Shelter animals know when they have been given a second chance and are forever grateful.
You can help by getting all the animals you know (yours, your neightbors, the strays...) fixed so no extra kittens and puppies are born. Even a puppy that you know you can find a home for takes one home away from a shelter puppy.
You can also help by fostering or donating to help pay shelter fees and vet bills if you aren't in a position to adopt.
Our long term goal is to see Los Angeles a no-kill city with free spay/neuter readily available. If you want to contribute to helping pay for spays & neuters please contact us at: Spay-Neuter Program.

Adopting a friend

We wish in a perfect world all animals would have a home and those that don't would be "free to a good home". Unfortunately we have to pay shelter fees to rescue animals, pay vets, pay for food... so when you adopt from us we ask a donation to cover our costs.
All of our animals are spay/neutered, current on their shots, dewormed, microchipped and come with a free vet visit and insurance.
