Adoptable Dogs

Dudley

He is very loving and playful and eager to find his new family.

Peanut
Male, Terrier mix
Age: 9 months old
Size: approximately 19 pounds

Peanut is Sunny’s only surviving baby. He was born with birth defects in his front legs and his back leg was damaged during birth. So when he arrived here we had to amputate it. He is a happy boy and shows no signs that having only 3 legs will slow him down at all.

He gets along with everyone and other dogs. Cats would be okay too!

Gigi
Female, Terrier Mix
Age: approximately 1-2 years old
Size: approximately 19 pounds

Gigi was rescued out of a Korean slaughterhouse. When she first arrived she was still very unsure of humans but has really come out of her shell with the ones she knows. She absolutely loves other dogs and is good with cats too. One of the sweetest and smartest dogs we’ve ever had at our rescue.

Coco
Female, Pomeranian and Terrier mix
Age: approximately 6 years old
Size: approximately 17 pounds

Coco was saved from the Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China this last June. So she’s still a little shy, especially around men. But with each day she is getting more relaxed. She would be okay in a house as the only dog and probably good with cats too.

Harley
Female, Basenji mix
Age: approximately 1-2 years old
Size: approximately 23 pounds

Harley was rescued from a Cambodian slaughterhouse back in June. She’s such a sweet girl that we are all confused as to why she is still up for adoption. She loves to go on walks and hikes.

Pippi
Female, Maltese mix
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 9 pounds

Pippi, along with so many of her friends, came from South Korea. It was evident that Pippi was about to have babies shortly after arriving, so she immediately went into a foster home to have them. At the end of February, she gave birth to two adorable and healthy babies. Pippi’s puppies are doing extremely well and have both been adopted, but Pippi is still awaiting her forever home with a lot of love to give.

Napa
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 5-6 months old
Size: approximately 10 pounds

Napa’s parents were rescued from the meat trade in China and she was born in our shelter there. She is playful with other dogs and is learning how to love humans. After arriving in Los Angeles, she was not sure what to expect when a human approached her, but now runs up to greet the ones she knows. She would be great for a home with other dogs and will just need a little time to get to know you.

Angel
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 5-6 months old
Size: approximately 10 pounds

Angel’s parents were rescued from the meat trade in China and she was born in our shelter there. Her best friend Napa is slowly showing Angel that people are nothing to worry about anymore. With each day she is becoming more trusting after watching others. After barking to let you know how tough she is, she will give you small kisses on your hand before running away. She adores other dogs and even though she was born without a front paw, it does not stop her from spending most of her time wrestling with her friends.

Zeus
Male, Marbled British Shorthair
Age: approximately 2-3 years old
Size: approximately 12 pounds

Zeus is one of the few cats available for adoption from the Animal Hope and Wellness Foundation, but might as well be considered one of the dogs. He is incredibly social with people and other animals, especially dogs. He gives kisses to show his affection and enjoys the occasional belly rub. He is content just be by your side or on your lap while taking his naps. Toys with bells are his favorite and he knows how to keep himself entertained while you are busy. Zeus would do well in a house with female cats or dogs and with someone who is happy to spend a lot of time with him.

Female, American Pit Bull Terrier mix
Age: approximately 3 years old
Size: approximately 30 pounds

Posse
Male, Pomeranian mix
Age: approximately 6 years old
Size: approximately 6 pounds

Age: approximately 3-4 years old

Beanie
Female, Chihuahua mix
Age: approximately 3-4 years old

She adores her friend Cassie and they can frequently be seen taking care of each other. Beanie would do well in a home with children and other small dogs.

Venus
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 1-2 years old
Size: approximately 17 pounds

Venus was saved from the meat trade in Cambodia. When she first arrived five months ago, she was very shy and suffered from severe anxiety. Understandably, she felt threatened by other dogs and people and would shriek when she was stressed. A few people were able to break through her walls and she became very sweet with them, but her anxiety remained. She was put in a long-term training program and just returned to the rescue. She has greatly improved and is wonderful with people. She is no longer afraid of strangers and unlike before, she will gladly go on walks even with those she has never met.

Duncan
Male, Basenji/Shepherd mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 17 pounds

Duncan was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. While still in Asia, Duncan was tied up by his back legs and beaten. After being saved, he slowly began to heal mentally and physically. At times, he is still a little off balance, but it in no way gets him down. Duncan still runs around and wrestles with his friends. With people, he has no issues whatsoever. He is so grateful to be saved that he shows his appreciation to everyone he meets. He loves to dish out kisses and be cuddled. Duncan would be perfectly content to sit on someone’s lap for hours while getting his belly scratched.

Spirit
Male, Basenji mix
Age: approximately 1 year old
Size: approximately 23 pounds

Spirit was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. He experienced some of the worst of the meat trade. He was bound by wire while both of his front paws were cut off. This is not done cleanly and obviously leaves the animal in incredibly pain. From this slaughterhouse, Spirit was the only one to survive this torture. After surgery, Spirit is adjusting to his new situation very well and when the healing process is complete, he will be fitted for prosthetics. Spirit is still quite shy and fearful, but is learning to open up with each coming day. He is seeking a forever home that can give him plenty of love and care. Please consider aiding in his recovery by making him a member of your family.

Milo
Male, Basenji mix
Age: approximately 7 months old
Size: approximately 27 pounds

Milo was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. Like Duncan, Milo was tied up by his back legs and beaten and just like Duncan, Milo came through the other end of abuse very kind. When he first arrived in the rescue, he was terrified, but it did not take him long to realize that no one was there to hurt him. Milo is incredibly loving and only wants to be close to you. He loves to play with other dogs and then take a break to cuddle on a person’s lap. Milo is still getting adjusted to his new environment, but he is ready and eager to find his forever home.

Talia
Female, Basenji and Thai Ridgeback mix
Age: approximately 5 months old
Size: approximately 24 pounds

Talia was rescued from a slaughterhouse in Cambodia. Marc found her while slaughterers were tying her to a pole to be cooked alive. At such a young age, this traumatized her severely. After arriving at the rescue, she found solace in no one and feared what every stranger would do to her. Over the course of just over a week, the employees worked hard with her every day in attempt to earn her trust. In the beginning, she would snap and snarl at each approach, but slowly learned to trust. She now gives kisses, will jump in your lap, and allow you to hold her. She has been introduced to the other dogs from Cambodia and is faring quite well. She is still wary with strangers, but opens up much faster if you have the time to spend with her.

Koko
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 5 years old
Size: approximately 10 pounds

Koko is a rescue from China that was found on the side of a road. She experienced some extreme physical trauma that our veterinarians are working hard to help with.

Despite all she has been through, she is very sweet and very appreciative of being rescued.

Marie
Female, mixed breed
Age: approximately 2 years old
Size: approximately 13 pounds

Marie’s parents were rescued from the meat trade in China and she was born in our shelter there. She is still very shy, but improving every day.

You can frequently catch her snuggling or wrestling with her friends.

Ludwig
Male, mixed breed
Age: TBD
Size: approximately 24 pounds

Ludwig was rescued from the South Korean meat trade. This adorable guy arrived in the rescue quite unsure of what to expect from humans. He is quickly opening up with those he sees everyday and becoming less fearful of strangers. He now loves to play with people, toys, and other dogs, especially his new best friend Gigi. He loves to greet people when they come to the back door and give them a kiss hello. This angel is very docile and would be great in a family with kids or other dogs. He is very curious about cats so he should have no problem with them as well.

Astro
Male, Maltese/Schnauzer mix
Age: TBD
Size: approximately 11 pounds

Astro was rescued from the South Korean meat trade. From when he first arrived, Astro has been very sweet. He will be the first dog to greet someone as they walk through the door by jumping on them to give them kisses. Even if he has seen you many times in one day, his tail will still be wagging if you walk his way. His favorite activities are making new friends and cuddling with Twinkie. Astro is very easy going and gets along with every dog he has met so far. This little guy needs a home where he can get plenty of love, attention, and play time.

Twinkie
Female, Maltese/Schnauzer mix
Age: TBD
Size: approximately 10 pounds

Twinkie was rescued from the South Korean meat trade. Upon her arrival, it was very clear that Twinkie was comfortable being on her own or with Astro. The first couple of days she would not approach anyone, but just observed her new environment. Once she decided her new home was safe, her personality completely opened up. Although her favorite activity is still curling up next to Astro, she now loves to be held by anyone who has the time for her. She will silently appear next to you and paw your leg for attention. She is very sweet and would be okay being the only dog in her forever home as long as she still gets plenty of love.

Gem
Female, mixed breed
Age: TBD
Size: approximately 13 pounds

Gem was rescued from the South Korean meat trade. Her first days in the rescue were spent bonding with her friends and exploring her new home. Once she felt situated, her love for humans emerged. She absolutely adores people and loves to spend as much time as she can with anyone that will sit with her. She loves going on long walks and spending some time outside on the grass. Gem has no problem with other dogs and does well whenever she is put in a new situation. She is extremely easy going and would be a good fit for any home.

Calypso was rescued at the end of March from the Gupo Meat Market, which is a dog meat slaughterhouse in South Korea. Marc found her in the back with only two other surviving cats, Dezi and Indy, and brought them to safety. The conditions she was born into have caused a few health conditions. She has water in her brain and has occasional seizures, but she does not let any of this impact her. She still loves to play with the other cats and is not bothered by dogs.
