We got Frank The Tank just a little over a month ago and he’s already part of the family. He and Mickey have become best buds! Frank can be a little skeptical of things and people at first so it’s great to see him follow Mickeys lead and take cues from him. We’ve been working…

ROOTBEER – showing her town Pitbulls are great!

Here’s a picture of Ruby and I.  She’s the local favorite in our neighborhood (Rose Ave, btwn 5th & 6th) and everyone loves seeing her because when she sees someone she knows (or someone new, for that matter), her entire body wags she’s so happy. It’s a shame dogs like her get such a bad…

GORDON…winning the family over

From adopter Nazareth:  The couple in the photo are my parents. They never really liked dogs or let me have one when I was a kid. Now when I visit them with Gordon, they forget I’m even there. Can’t tell you how much joy he brings to them and myself.

One-eyed WATSON sees how good life can be!

One-eyed WATSON sees how good life can be!

Little Watson had a rough start in life until we rescued him from the South LA Shelter in February of 2012.  He had a ruptured right eye, probably from being kicked or dropped. His owners then dumped him at the shelter!  But, once he had surgery to remove the eye and got lots of TLC…

Hi Much Love, We adopted Mulligan (formerly known as Pretzel) in November 2010, and she has since become the center of our world. We have driven her across the country twice since because we couldn’t stand to leave her in a kennel or risk flying her in cargo when we went home to Tennessee for…

Dear Much Love, It has been over 10 years since we got our first Much Love Adoptee, Brianna.  We renamed her Fey.  She was a scrawny little girl rescued from the streets, with kennel cough, allergies, and all kinds of issues.  But she rapidly became our “good girl,” perfectly obedient, able to hike for hours,…
