Winnie has come a long way since being rescued. When she arrived at her foster mom’s homes, she used to walk with her tail between her legs, and today she’s a tail-wagger! She sleeps on her own bed, even though she’s been invited to join her foster mom on her bed. She loves her daily walks and is curious about what’s down each driveway.
As a rescue pup, life hasn't been easy and she has seen the ugly side of humanity. Humans haven't been too nice to her in the past, which is why she can be a bit hesitant at first to be affectionate, but once she feels safe, she approaches and loves, on her terms, on her own pace.
Her foster mom describes her as dainty. She also loves to take naps in the sun, she loves following her human and other pups around the house. She’s well behaved and sits pretty on the couch. She suffers from separation anxiety and dislikes being left alone. This beautiful girl is housebroken; she’ll whimper softly when she wants to go out.
Winnie will continue to make great strides and become a wonderful addition to a family without little kids or hyper pets. She’s completely vetted and has a fresh new smile after having her dental done. Isn’t she gorgeous!
She’s super excited to find her forever family and we’re happy to help! If you are interested in her, please fill out an Adoption Interest Application found on our website under forms.
Wilma was a baby herself when we rushed to save her and her 6 puppies from the shelter where they had been given a few hours to live; she was about 8 months old.
After nursing her babies, Wilma went to her current foster family. They are veteran fosters, extremely knowledgeable to help harder cases like Wilma’s. She was considered feral and would empty her bladder at the touch of human hands. No eye contact. Frozen in fear. Wouldn’t leave her crate and they worked through each her challenges, one by one. She set the pace and they followed. They never treated her as if she was broken.
Every day she made progress. She fell smitten with her foster dad, which motivated her to leave her crate to follow him around. Her foster mom always encourages the pack to support the foster sibling through their transition. They each assured her that she was in a safe place. They showed her to play, master the doggie door, sit pretty for treats and best, to trust the rehabilitation process.
In the midst of Wilma’s fear, 13-year-old Cyrus, her blind and zen sister, nurtured her and showed her to trust. Cyrus has become Wilma’s greatest healing force and Best Friend!
Wilma recently had her 1st birthday. Since living with her foster family, they have introduced her to home life, the beautiful feeling of the wind hitting your face while riding in a car, sleeping peacefully in a clean and warm bed, being part of a pack, confidence, and the beautiful side of humanity.
Though she is still working through her challenges, the amazing progress she’s made, makes our hearts burst with admiration and love to see her resilience and victories.
Wilma is available for adoption and will need an experienced adopter that will continue to help her thrive. She’s not the type that will jump in your arms or show affection; she’s the type that will come when called and will love you from her safe space; this doesn’t mean that she won’t do it in the future, she’s just not doing that now. She loves dogs and has a resilient spirit. She’s an underdog with a heart of gold that will bring lots of happiness and beauty to the family that adopts her. She’s our hero!

Fred and Ginger have had quite a journey at such a young age. These gorgeous 1-year-old bonded Siblings; Dachshund-Corgi Mix; Dorgi’s!
We were able to save them just in time as their time was limited at the San Bernardino Shelter. They have left their orphaned life behind. No more fleas, ticks, hunger, and fear. Despite what they’ve been through, they are eager to love and be loved.
Both are affectionate, love to cuddle and give kisses galore! They both love to play and play fetch! They love to play chase and zoom around the backyard. They are extremely sweet and smart! Every day they learn to thrive in a home and do well with their foster home regimen. They have great appetites (not finicky), love toys and once they trust you, they love hard!
They will do best with an experienced adopter that will help them continue to thrive and support them through their new life as safe pups. They had their photoshoot a week after they were saved. Those smiles say it all! In just that first week they slept in clean beds, ate yummy treats and food, played with new toys, learned to fetch, mastered the doggie door, and were showered with love and affection. They are excited to find their forever home that will provide them the same and much more for years to come.
These siblings are bonded and are looking for a forever family together. If you are interested in these 2 treasures, please complete an Adoption Interest Application on our website.
Remember little Zoey who joined us back in mid-August? She was placed in our care by her family who no longer could keep her... she was terrified and cornered herself in the rear of the car...
Little Zoey has thrived at her foster home. She is fully healed from her spay and is ready to be matched with her forever family.
It takes Zoey sometime to warm up. She is cautious and hesitant at first. She will need a family that will be patient with her transition. This little 5.5 lb princess is spunky, and once she trusts, she loves hard.
Zoey is a 2-year-old 5.5 lb Chihuahua. She is dog friendly and would prefer a home with less action. She loves her walks and watching tv while cuddled up next to her humans.
