Meet Frankie! I'm 4 yrs old and 15lbs. I'm a fun loving guy looking for a home of his own. Frankie has anxiety and may take longer than other dogs to adjust to a new situation. We know Frankie is a little challenging but he is very affectionate and gets along great with the other dogs in his foster home. We know the right person is out there for this beautiful sweet boy. 
Meet Freya! I'm 10 yrs old and 5 lbs. I'm a feisty senior gal looking for a home to call my own. 
Our beautiful Phoebe from VCAS is ready to find her forever home! Phoebe was brought to our attention by shelter staff who felt so bad for her after being owner surrendered with a severe chronic ear infection that caused thickening and mass like tissue to form in and around her ear canal. She had surgery to remove the biggest masses and has started treatment with our dermatologist.  She has also been started on a hypoallergenic diet to rule out food allergy as a cause for the chronic ear issue. Phoebe is a sweet and loving girl who really wants someone to bond with. She does need someone who is willing to take care of her ears ongoing. Phoebe deserves the best now and we are so hoping to find that person for her

Winnie - ADOPTED

Slowly Winnie has been making progress in her foster home🙏 she is very loving but initially would cower and scream if approached or you reached for her.  After a few weeks of care with Susan and Larry she is doing so much better and feeling so much more confident. She is very affectionate and likes to sit with you and cuddle. She would love a calm quiet home where she can finally be safe and stay forever.

Scooter Pie
Redford is a 4 months old terrier mix puppy. He gets along well with other dogs and is currently 4lbs. We expect him to remain a small dog.
Pistachio is a Chihuahua mix puppy we rescued from the Delano shelter. He is 10 months old and 4lbs. We don't expect him to get much bigger. He loves to plays and gets along with other dogs.  
Its official!! Scooter got a great report from our cardiologist and he can now find his happily ever after!!! Scooter Pie is such a fun dog!! He absolutely LOVES to play with other dogs and is a super smart friendly guy. If you followed Scooter Pie’s story you know alot of folks chipped in to ensure Scooter could have his surgery! We know some folks may be intimidated by Scooter’s story but the cardiologist let them us know the surgery was a success and Scooter will go on to live a normal life!!! We would ideally love to find Scooter Pie a home with another small dog to play with. Scooter Pie is 12pounds and 5 years old.Scooter Pie is ready to meet You!!!!

Meet Roxy. She is 10 years old and a Jack Russel Terrier mix. She is super sweet and affectionate. Good with other dogs. Roxy has a heart murmur andtakes one medication. She would make a great companion for a senior person or just a calm home in general. 
Porsche​, Kia, Jetta


Lucille has stolen our hearts!! She is 1yr old, about 7 pounds, and the most amazing smile. She loves other dogs and her tail never stops wagging. She carries around toys bigger than her and she is a very sweet loving girl. Whoever gets to adopt her is going to be VERY lucky!!! 
Hasbrown is an 8 year old, 10 pound Pomeranian. When we rescued him from VCAS he had been hit by a car and had a lacerated tongue and knee injury. He is healed up and ready for a forever home of his own.





Pepe is a 6 year old chihuahua with a very funny little personality.  He is sweet and likes to sit on your lap but also likes to play with toys and hang with other dogs.  He is a very fun little dog and has so much character!!  He does get a little possesive with his food with other dogs around but does well when fed separately and a home with no cats would likely be best.  And yes he came to us missing one eye, but it doesnt slow him down in the least, only makes him more handsome!!
Gracie is a beautiful little 8-9 year old shihtzu.  The day we met her she was the only quiet dog in the medical room at the shelter and stood on her hind legs with little praying hands like she was begging.  I could not forget her and had to go back and bail her out.  Gracie is very healthy but happens to be mostly blind due to cataracts.  This does not slow her down at all and she is a very confident dog.  She lives with other dogs in her foster and gets along well though she sometimes tries to ward them off with a bark to protect herself, likely a protective mechanism due to the blindness.  She would make a wonderful companion for someone with a fairly quiet home.  She is a special girl and hoping someone will see past the blindness to all she has  has to offer!!!
Capone is the most adorable little 12 year old senior rescued from Ventura County.  he had very severe dental infection and all of his teeth had to be extracted.  He felt better right away and is so adorable with his toothless litle smile.  He is a very happy little guy who walks well on leash and is social with dogs and people.  He is looking for his forever family and looking forward to several more good years!!!




Meet Ruby! I'm 3-4 years old and 10 pounds. I'm a beautiful Chimix girl looking for my person. Could that be you? 
Ivy is such an amzing sweet loving girl!!  She is about 8 years old, rescued from Ventura County.  She waited 2 long months in the shelter and we just cant figure out why!!.  She is extremely well behaved and walks nicely on a leash.  She gets along well with other dogs.  She wants nothing more than to cuddle up on your lap.  Ivy deserves her own person to love and she is just waiting!!  Could it be you???
Harmonie is quite a beauty and really looks like she is a chihua mixed with Italian Greyhound. She is only 2 years old and in great health.    She has the most adorable little prance when she walks.  She can be a little shy at first but warms up quickly.  She is very affectionate and good with other dogs.  She walks beautifully on a leash and enjoys going to the park or out and about with you.  She is a very happy little girl and looking for her special forever family.





Azalea is just waiting to steal your heart!!  She is a super affectionate tail wagging little lovebug.  She wants to be on your lap and in your arms as much as possible.  She is 9 years old, has had bloodwork and a dental cleaning and is ready to meet her special someone!!!
Opal is one of the two beautiful puppies that came in with Ruby.  They have been such a joy to watch grow.  Very healthy little chubby girls.  Opal is spayed and has her vaccinations and ready to go to her forever home!!!
Jewel is the second and smaller of Ruby's beautiful girls.  Just too cute for words, she will be spayed as soon as he is of the proper weight and will be ready to go.  How can anyone resist this face?

Aria (black) & Hannah (Biege)  [ADOPTED]


Araia and Hannah are Chihuahua/terrier mix puppies born in mid September 2016.  They were thrown in a dumpster by a woman tied in a trash bag.  Avery nice lady saw the woman put the bag in and when she threw her trash away she heard crying and rustling.  Her grandson climbed in with a flashlight and pulled out the bag with these girls inside with their eyes still closed.  This kind lady and her grandchildren bottle fed them and did a great job.  Their landlord found out and said they had to go immediately, which is where we came in.  We have had them vaccinated and they are getting spayed and will be available for adoption by the end of November.  Please fill out an application for these adorable sisters if you are interested!!
Faith is an adorable little senior Pomeranian who was abandoned in an empty house when her previous owners moved away and decided she wasnt worth taking.  Left to starve, she was reported by a neighbor and confiscated by the San Bernardino shelter.  She had to wait in the shelter for a month before being released for adoption.  Her story really got to us and we had to save her!!  Her first day out of the shelter really WAS her lucky day, as the moment she arrived at my hospital and Dr Sue Downing set eyes on her she was in love!!  Faith had multiple medical issues which have all been taken care of by her new mom and she has fit into Dr Downings family perfectly!!  Truly a match made in heaven!!!
