To see all events, visit our EVENT CALENDAR Page.

To make the most out of your time, we suggest you SUBMIT an adoption APPLICATION BEFORE an adoption event.

Check the animal attendance the morning before the event to confirm attendance of a particular rescue. In addition, please check the up-to-date animals attendance list 1 HOUR BEFORE an event to know if the dog or cat you want to meet is still attending.

Also remember to review important event information BEFORE attending.

Foster a Rescue

Fostering is
  FREE and FUN! 

We not only provide you with everything you need to take care of one of our rescues, but the experience is SO fulfilling. By placing one animal into a foster home, you allow us to save another. We are always in need of foster parents.

Thank you for choosing rescue!

We are a non-profit rescue organization and DO NOT own a shelter. Therefore, our pets stay in FOSTER HOMES. Animals that need one have a note in RED below their picture on their profile.
You can also browse a list of animals who need a foster home to find out which pets are searching for one below:

Lola is an adorable small GSD mix who was rescued in September 2019 from the streets of Tijuana, while tied to a post. Lola was fearful when she first arrived in a dog kennel for transport and was very scared.  She didn't hesitate to try to bite, so we did what we always do when we have a dog who is scared and can be a fear biter. We gave...

UPDATE 9-16-20:At this time we can only assume Matty has some serious trust issues towards humans and this is why he would not allow anyone to touch him on the day of his rescue.  Consequently, every time he goes through a change (i.e. meeting new people or changing his foster home), he becomes protective and weary of the situation.  This...

Dog /Female
