The little rescue with a big heart

Our primary mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and find loving, permanent homes for homeless dogs, specifically dogs in shelters at-risk of euthanasia and dogs whose owners can no longer care for them. We believe in compassionate rescue when the dog is enduring inhumane living conditions or likely to be deemed less adoptable due to age, health, emotional state, or breed. We ensure that all the dogs we take into our rescue, regardless of individual needs, are cared for with love and compassion for the duration of their lives.

Can’t wait! 

In honor of National Pet Day, please enjoy Princess Lula’s moment of zen. She’d love to have more moments like this and to get back to being someone’s pet, but we can’t seem to entice a foster to open up their home to her. In the meantime, she’s in a boarding facility where she spends the majority of her day wondering when she can get back to snuggling on the couch with a human all her own. Please share Princess Lula so we can get her back in a home environment where she thrives. If not now, then when?

That'MYPHANTOM BELOW. HE'S A PITTY MIX TOO WISH I STILL HAD HIM.

I wish I could foster her. She seems wonderful! But, sadly, I’m maxed out on fosters right now 🙁

No I was his owner from Jan 2020 until the moment he died. He was a big love bug. We moved from TX to AR and we had lived there until the pet sitter I was using while I was in the hospital gave him away. I search and asked but no one knew where he was. At least now I know he is in dog heaven ❤️

Ivy’s world turned upside down when her adoptive mom unexpectedly passed away last month. In an instant, she lost her best friend and home. She needed a safe place where she could begin to heal while we worked on a plan for her. Thankfully, our friend and trainer Robert Villaneda was able to make a spot for Ivy at his facility. Over the last four weeks, our girl Ivy has been doing the work to prepare for the next part of her recovery journey. She is ready for this! All she needs is a foster or foster-to-adopter to hold her hand.

If you live in Long Beach, California, or the surrounding areas, and you have space in your heart and home for Ivy, we want to hear from you! Remember, fostering costs you nothing because we pay for all expenses. As Ivy’s foster you’ll have the full support of our rescue team and her amazing trainer, so whether you’re a newbie or an experienced foster you’ll have everything you need to succeed. Seriously, we will have your back!

Ivy is a very affectionate, medium energy dog. She loves ALL humans! She is good on leash, and likes playing with toys. She is still learning to be confident and comfortable around other dogs so (for now anyway) we believe she would do best as an only dog or paired with a calm, older dog about her size. She hasn’t been formally cat tested yet.

If you think Ivy sounds like a good match for your home, please apply to foster today!

Adopt

Provide a forever home for one of our wonderful dogs. From the moment we pull a dog off the streets or from the shelter, our dream is for them to end up with a loving family of their own. Rescue pets make the best pets!
