These rescue groups use foster families which help to acclimate rescue animals to a home environment. They get individual attention and veterinary care. Foster families get to know each animals personalities and habits. Often times they help to train rescue animals too, so your new family member has a smooth transition.

We’re an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3), non-profit organization based in Mission Viejo, California. Our four Board Members and more than 30 Volunteers are dedicated to saving abandoned dogs and cats in overcrowded shelters throughout California. Many of the animals we rescue have a slim chance of getting out alive due to sickness, injury or lack of kennel space.
