Founded in 2011 

Adoption fees don't cover the cost of getting
a dog ready for adoption. 

The shelters we work with don't spay or neuter the dogs they give to rescues.  They don't give rabies shots, test for parasites, or treat for them. They don't treat for fleas and ticks.  Dentals, broken bones, illness must be paid for by our rescue. These expenses are the kinds of expenses that your donations help us pay for.  When a dog has been neglected and needs their teeth cleaned, or has had an injury or illness... these are all the responsibility of the rescue who saves the dog. 

This is why your donations are so

very important to our work and so appreciated. 

​It is also worth noting that the national big box animal organizations are not saving dogs on death row from California shelters.  Donations made are spent on salaries, TV commercials and administration, legal fees and so much more. 
In fact, it's the small volunteer based rescues, who are doing all the heavy lifting, life saving work on shoe string budgets.
Small rescues are NOT government funded like the shelters. Donations are critical for survival.
