 ~Congratulations to Fletcher in finding his fur-ever home!~

Fletcher was originally a barn cat and lived with a group of other cats at a local horse stable. Unfortunately, due to the increase in coyote population and the fact that Fletcher was such a love (rolling over on his back, laying out in the open being a silly boy, etc.), we decided that it would be best for him to find a home where he can be an indoor cat, and decrease his risk of being attacked by a coyote. Fletcher was able to find a fur-ever home in Long Beach with his new human mom and his kitty sibling!

~Congratulations to Jake in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 2/16/14

Jake, "The Little Yellow Dog", is a 2 year old, approx. 15 pound, Chihuahua/Terrier mix! While attempting to catch stray dog for over an hour one evening, we found Jake (who was also a stray) hiding under a parked car in a dark cul-de-sac. He was so happy to see people, he came right up to us to say hello. At that moment, we realized just what an amazing dog he is. Jake's owners could not be located, so we had Jake seen by our vet, had him neutered, got him all of his shots, and had him microchipped. He was placed into a foster home to await a permanent adopter. After caring for Jake for a little while, his foster parents realized there was no way they could part with him and they asked to adopt him themselves! Jake is now living happily ever after with his new family (2 kitties included!) in Montebello!

 


 ~Congratulations to Oddish and Togepi in finding their fur-ever home (together!)~

Oddish and Togepi were found as orphans at a horse stable when they were 3 weeks old, with their brother Cowlet (he looks like a little cow!). They were bottle fed and turned out to be quiet an adorable pair! Oddish and Togepi were very lucky and found a fur-ever home together with their new human mom and dad in the San Diego area!

 

~Congratulations to Amber in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 8/12/12

Amber is a 5 year old, approx. 65 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier! We rescued Amber from the North Central Shelter in December 2008 after she was "redlisted" (set to be killed). We sent Amber to a professional trainer to work on her obedience and doggie socialization skills. Prior to this permanent home, Amber was placed into two other homes that unfortunately did not work out. Amber now has a wonderful family consisting of a dad, mom, and human brother and sister, located in the San Diego area!

 

~Congratulations to Ace in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 5/14/12

Ace is a 1 year old, 70 pound, American Staffordshire Terrier mix! We rescued Ace from the Harbor Shelter in April 2011 after one of our wondering foster/adoptive homes was looking for their new family member to adopt! Their family initially fostered Ace, until it was clear (and it didn't take long!) that Ace was the perfect match. Ace lives with his loving family (along with our previously adopted "Roo" and "Buddy"-- see adoption listings below) in Riverside!

 

~Congratulations to Lassie in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 5/14/12

Lassie is a 3 year old, approx. 25 pound, Beagle mix! We rescued Lassie from the East Valley Shelter in December 2010, after she was put on the "Alert List" (set to be killed) and at high risk of being put down. Lassie's previous owners lost both of their jobs and had a daughter suffering from Multiple Sclerosis. Unfortunately, bad timing struck and Lassie somehow managed to get hit by a car. She needed immediate veterinary care, but her family could not afford it so they took her to the shelter. When we rescued Lassie, we took her directly to our orthopedic specialist for a consultation. Lassie was suffering from a dislocated hip and needed a surgical procedure called a FHO (Femoral Head Ostectomy) done and her surgery was done that day. Lassie was placed directly into a loving foster home to recover from her surgery and be back into a "family/home environment". Lassie quickly leaped into the hearts of her foster parents, in which she now proudly calls her permanent home! Lassie now lives with her new mom, dad, and doggie brother (see "Billy", an adopted dog below!) in San Diego!

 

~Congratulations to Taffy in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 2/6/12

Taffy is a 5 year old, 3 pound, purebred Chihuahua! We rescued Taffy from the West Valley Shelter in July 2011. Per her shelter medical notes and confirmation by our rescue's vet, Taffy has a neurological condition called Cerebellar Hypoplasia. Thankfully, her case is very mild, leaving very few/mild symptoms (occasional clockwise circles and a special prancy gait in the hind end). A month or so after being pulled from the shelter, Taffy was diagnosed with seizures and later diagnosed with tremors. Despite her special needs, Taffy found an amazing fur-ever home with her new mom, dad, and doggie siblings (see "Maple", an adopted dog below!).

 

~Congratulations to Trudy in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 1/18/12

Trudy is a 3 year old, approx. 51 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier mix! We rescued Trudy after she was impounded at the Santa Monica Shelter as a stray in 2009. Trudy was then put into training with a wonderful trainer in Santa Clarita to work on her basic obedience and doggie socialization. Even though Trudy was in our rescue for a few years, she was finally able to find the PERFECT home with her new mom and dad in Los Alamitos!

 

~Congratulations to Buddy (left) in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 11/27/11

Buddy is a 4 year old, approx. 15 pound, Chihuahua mix! We rescued Buddy, along with 4 other Chihuahua mixes, from the East Valley Shelter in January 2009, after they were seized from a hoarder (along with 40 other dogs)! All 5 of the hoarder Chihuahua mixes we rescued were very shy and extremely under socialized. They were not use to being touched by people, nor were they use to being around people at all, and were very nervous and timid dogs. Buddy was placed directly into a foster home after leaving the shelter. He has remained in the same foster home and they ended up falling in love with him! buddy has come a long way in his recovery from living with the hoarder; however, he still has a long way to go. Roo is living happily with his human, dog (one being "Roo"- see adoption listing below), and kitty companions!

 fortuna_green.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Fortuna in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 11/5/11

Fortuna is a 6 year old, approx. 60 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier! We rescued Fortuna from the South LA Shelter in February 2010 after she was "redlisted" (put on the list to be killed) and in severe danger of loosing her life. She was extremely overbred in her previous home, but held high spirits regardless. Fortuna was placed into a paid foster home, and then went to training to perfect her manners and basic commands! Following leaving the training facility, Fortuna was placed into a wonderful foster-to-adopt home. We are extremely happy to report that Fortuna was adopted by her foster dad and now have a permanent home to call her very own!

 

~Congratulations to Mya in finding her fur-ever home!~

Mya is a 6 month old, female, Domestic Medium Hair kitten. Mya and her siblings (Sasha and Mustachio- see adoption listings below) were rescued after being dumped by their previous "owner" at a local shelter late one night. Their "owner" left them in a cardboard box at the shelter's front door after closing; leaving them there all night to potentially sit and wait cold, alone, and scared until the shelter eventually opened in the morning. Thankfully, they were rescued that very evening prior to the shelter ever knowing about their existence, and they were placed into a foster home. Mya was adopted by her foster home, along with Meeko (see adoption listing below).

 

~Congratulations to Meeko in finding his fur-ever home!~

Meeko is a 5 month old, male, Tabby! Meeko was found as a stray outside an apartment building that did not allow pets, when he was about 8 weeks of age. He was found by a resident late one night and given to our rescue to help get him off the streets and give him a chance at survival. Meeko was placed into a foster home, who ended up adopting him along with Mya (see adoption listing above)!

 

~Congratulations to Derby in finding his fur-ever home!~

Derby is a 5 month old, American Pit Bull Terrier mix! We rescued Derby from the Harbor Shelter when he was 8 weeks of age. Prior to contacting the shelter regarding Derby, we ran across his picture on the shelter's website and felt a connection right away with the little guy. We contacted the shelter to pull him, only to find out that he and the rest of his litter (one sister and two brothers) had Parvo and could be euthanized (killed) at any time. At the time, our rescue was really not in the financial position to rescue Derby as Parvo is very expensive to treat and the survival rate is not always high; however, we could also not just let him die at the shelter, never knowing what love was. We rescued Derby and drove him directly to our vet, where he remained for 9 days on treatment for his Parvo. In the meantime, our rescue heavily networked his sister and brothers for donations, other rescues to save them from the shelter, foster homes, adopters, etc., but nobody came forward to save them from the shelter. Had we received enough donations to care for his sibling's Parvo treatments, we would have immediately gone back to the shelter to save them, but unfortunately, that was not the case. Parvo can cost OVER $1,000 PER DOG in hospitalization care to treat. For Derby's siblings, we were only able to raised around $150 dollars in donations, TOTAL. Sadly, Derby's siblings did not make it out of the shelter alive, and they were never given a chance of life. We are grateful, however, that we were able to save Derby and that he is now in a permanent home with one of our volunteers.

 

~Congratulations to Sasha in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 6/26/11

Sasha is a 12 week old, female, Domestic Medium Hair kitten. Sasha and her siblings (Mya and Mustachio- see other adoption listings) were rescued after being dumped by their previous "owner" at a local shelter late one night. Their "owner" left them in a cardboard box at the shelter's front door after closing; leaving them there all night to potentially sit and wait cold, alone, and scared until the shelter eventually opened in the morning. Thankfully, they were rescued that very evening prior to the shelter ever knowing about their existence, and they were placed into a foster home. Sasha now lives in her fur-ever loving home with her new mom and dad in San Diego!

 

~Congratulations to Emery in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopt on 6/25/11

Emery is a 4 month old, approx. 25 pound, Labrador Retriever/Shepherd mix. In May 2011, we rescued Emery from the East Valley Shelter after she was impounded at the shelter as a "stray- pick up", and at risk of losing her life. She was impounded at the shelter with a fractured Tiba in her left hind left and a fractured Femur in her right hind leg. She immediately saw our regular vet, and then saw our orthopedic specialist, and thankfully her Tibia was healing very nicely and while her Femur did not begin healing correctly, it was healing nicely in a way that did not require surgery. While we do not know 100% what happened to Emery prior to her being impounded at the shelter, we do strongly believe that her injuries were inflicted directly by humans, not from being hit by a car accident, etc. Emery is a very sweet girl; however, she is becomes very shy, timid, and afraid when around new people, and shows clear signs that she was severely abused in her previous home. Due to her special behavioral needs, she needed to find a home that understood her and that was willing to work with her on her socialization and to overcome her issues/fears. Thankfully, Emery was able to find an amazing home that fostered her for 2 weeks prior to adoption, to help ensure the understanding of the extent of assistance she would need on her socialization, etc. Emery improved so much during those 2 weeks and is now on the right path to a happy and social life! She is now living happily with her new dad in North Hollywood!

  

~Congratulations to Mustachio in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 6/1/11

Mustachio is a 9 week old, male, Domestic Short Hair kitten, with an adorable little black mustache (hence his name!). Mustachio and his two sisters (Mya and Sasha- see other adoption listings) were rescued after being dumped by their previous "owner" at a local shelter late one night. Their "owner" left them in a cardboard box at the shelter's front door after closing; leaving them there all night to potentially sit and wait cold, alone, and scared until the shelter eventually opened in the morning. Thankfully, they were rescued that very evening prior to the shelter ever knowing about their existence, and they were placed into a foster home. Mustachio now lives with his new mommy in San Diego where he will be completely spoiled and never at risk of being impounded at a shelter again!

 
 
~Congratulations to Lexi in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 3/3/11

Lexi is a 1 year old, 9 pound, Maltese/Poodle mix (Malti-Poo!). Our rescue found Lexi as a stray the day before Christmas Eve in 2010, when she was spotted running across a very busy street around 11pm. Our rescue's founder spent over a hour on the side of the road trying to gain her trust to be able to catch her. Lexi was extremely matted all over her entire body and her mats were so large and severe that they were right up against her skin and pulling at her skin every time she moved. She was so shaggy that she had fur covering her eyes, and it was so wet that it stuck down like glue and severely impaired her ability to see through it. Due to not being able to see through her fur, Lexi was very afraid and confused as to her surroundings and to what was going on. Thankfully, she was finally able to be caught and brought to safety. Our rescue had Lexi groomed (bathed and shaved), spayed, got her shots, and microchip, etc. After going through many, many applications for her adoption, she finally found the PERFECT home with her new mom, dad, and human brother and sister in West Hills!

 Remy2-1.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Remy in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 1/14/11

Remy is a 3 year old, approx. 40 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier mix! Back in May of 2008, we rescued Remy from the South LA Shelter after he was "redlisted" (put on the list to be killed). In June 2008, Remy was adopted by a woman, her boyfriend, and thier dog. Unfortunately, Remy's owner could no longer commit to giving him a permanent home, so she returned him to our rescue in June 2010. He was returned by no fault of his own, but due to his adopter's living situation and current circumstances at that time. We put Remy in professional training to perfect his manners and to help socialize him properly with other dogs. Remy has now found his permanent home with his new mom in Long Beach!

  MaggiePittie014.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Maggie in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 11/26/10

Maggie is a 2 year old, approx. 50 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier! Prior to being impounded at the shelter, Maggie had recently had a litter of puppies, but unfortunately they were nowhere to be found when she was picked up off the streets as a stray. Our rescue took Maggie in and had her professionally trained, where she was able to work on proper socialization skills, as well as basic commands and obedience. Despite everything Maggie has been through, she is still such a sweet, loving girl. Maggie is now livin’ large in Los Angeles with her very own family, cozy home, AND a fun backyard to run around and play fetch in!

  Gertrude015.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Gertrude in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted 10/1/10

Gertrude is a 10 year old, 50 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier mix! We rescued Gertrude from the East Valley Shelter in January 2010 after she was redlisted (set to be killed) and just days away from losing her life. While shelter volunteers were networking her for adoption/rescue, nobody else showed interest in saving her life. Thankfully, we were able to rescue her and give her a second chance at a happy life! Although during the time she was in our rescue she had a few interested parties, it was determined that none of them were right for her. We are happy to announce that Gertrude has been adopted by our founder's family, where she had been being fostered. She fit in too perfectly to be given up, and now has a loving, permanent home to call her own!

  Suzie01.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Suzie in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted 9/22/10

Suzie is an 8 year old, approx. 16 pound, Minature Schnauzer/Poodle mix! We rescued Suzie from the East Valley Shelter in October 2009 after she was "greenlisted" (put on the list to be killed). She was taken to our Cardiologist due to the fact that both the shelter and our vet detected that she had a heart murmur. Suzie had an Echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart) done on her and it was determined that she did have slight heart disease. Medication was not needed at that time, but she is to return for a re-check Echocardiogram 9 months after her initial visit. When we rescued Suzie she was very shy and usually kept to herself. We placed her in a wonderful foster home (with one of our past adopters) who did an excellent job at helping bring her out of her shell and showed her that she can relax and have fun. Suzie's foster parents soon grew very attached her, as did Suzie to them, and it quickly grew apparent that they could not be separated! Suzie now lives with her new mom, dad, doggie brother (see "Baxter" below), in their new home in Aliso Viejo!

  DaisyandTodd014-1.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue DaisyandTodd010-1.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Daisy and Todd in finding their fur-ever home!~ Adopted 8/12/10

Daisy is a 5 month old, approx. 39 pound, Mastiff/American Bulldog mix and Todd is a 5 month old, approx. 44 pound, Mastiff/American Bulldog mix! Our rescue's founder witnessed Daisy and Todd being dumped on a street corner, across the street from a park, around 10:30pm one evening. Their horrible owners dumped them to fend for themselves, and potentially get hit by a car. They were left with a dirty, wet blanket, as their low-life owners sped away in their car. Daisy and Todd were rescued with another puppy (their little brother), but unfortunately, he did not make it, and passed away very early the following morning. After a vet evaluation and testing (the afternoon following the night they were rescued), all three puppies were discovered to have had Parvo (Parvovirus), and though Daisy and Todd are now treated and healthy, their brother was already too far gone and did not survive. Our rescue spent a lot of money on Daisy and Todd's treatment, and thankfully they were able to make a full recovery! Daisy and Todd were placed into a loving foster-to-adopt home together, were they have since been adopted into! Now Daisy and Todd are permanently living with their new mom and dad in Los Angeles!

  TrudyandDesert027-1.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Molly in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted 8/11/10

Molly is a 6 year old, approx. 8 pound, Maltese/Poodle mix (Malti-Poo!). We rescued Molly from the East Valley Shelter in December 2009 after she was redlisted (set to be killed). When Molly was impounded at the shelter, she had a pelvic fracture and a fracture in her front left leg. After 3 different orthopedic surgeries, Molly is finally healed and doing extremely well. The shelter noted that Molly also had a heart murmur, so we took her to our Cardiologist for an exam and Echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart). The results of the Echocardiogram showed that Molly was born with a heart defect, which is unfortunately not correctable by surgery. She does not need to be placed on medication at this time either, but is to be re-seen by the Cardiologist in 6 months for a re-check on her heart to make sure her condition has not gotten any worse. Molly has found the most wonderful home with her new mom, who understands her heart condition, etc., located in Santee!

~Congratulations to Summer in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted 8/6/2010

Summer is a 1 year and 6 month year old, approx. 30 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier! We rescued Summer from the East Valley Shelter in November 2009 after she was "redlisted" (put on the list to be killed). She had a skin condition called Demodex Mange (the NON-contagious form of mange) and her entire body was hairless! She immediately saw our vet and continued on her medication. A few months later, Summer's coat was fully grown back to her natural beautiful blue/white color! Summer went to our trainer for basic obedience training to freshen up on her manners and commands. She has now found her permanent home with a wonderful family. She is now living happily with her new mom, dad, human sisters, and K-9 sister, Amber, in Temecula!

  CammiesWheels015.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Cammie in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted 8/3/10

Cammie is a 1 year and 6 month old, 6 pound, Pug/Chihuahua mix! We rescued Cammie in February 2010 from the South LA Shelter. While in her previous home (prior to being impounded at the shelter) Cammie was hit by a car, and instead of taking her to a vet to make sure she was okay, her owners TIED her up OUTSIDE for WEEKS! Animal Control was finally alerted of her situation, and seized her. When she was hit by the car, her spine was fractured and she became paralyzed in her hind end; although, thankfully, she is not in any pain. Both our regular vet and our orthopedic specialist reviewed Cammie's x-rays, but only to agree upon the fact that her neurological damage is permanent, and that she will never be able to gain use of her hind-end again. In regards to her spinal fracture, our orthopedic specialist stated that surgery could be done, but it would not help Cammie gain use of her back-end or legs again. The surgery would only be "cosmetic" to get rid of her "camel hump" (hence her name) on her back. We both agreed that Cammie should not be put through that much (surgery, recovering time, etc.) just for cosmetic reasons, if it will not help improve her mobility even the slightest bit. Cammie's accident left her incontinent, meaning she can go to the bathroom on her own, but she does not feel when she has to go, so she now needs to wear "doggie diapers". Eddie's Wheels (http://www.eddieswheels.com/) generously donated a wheelchair to Cammie to help her get around with less hassle and to help her continue life in a stylish fashion. Cammie's previous owners were said to have been facing criminal charges; however, no charges will ever be enough for the permanent damage they have done to her. Regardless of the trauma she has endured, Cammie remains a sweet, happy, friendly little girl with the most outgoing, silly, and loving personality. She has now found the perfect permanent home with her new, wonderful mom and dad! Cammie loves going on walks to the park in her wheelchair and hanging out indoors both cuddling with her human companions, and playing with her many toys!

  Parker4.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Parker in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted 6/24/10

Parker is an 8 year old, approx. 20 pound, Shih Tzu! We rescued Parker in December 2009 after he was redlisted (set to be killed). Nobody else was networking Parker for rescue or adoption, so if not for our rescue, Parker would not be alive and thriving in his new home today! Parker has a heart condition and we took him to our Cardiologist to get an Echocardiogram done to determine the severity of his condition. Parker has had a rough life, but has now found his permanent home with his wonderful foster mom, where he is receiving all the attention, and belly rubs, he could ever wish for!

  Kyra.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Kyra in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted 2/6/10

Kyra is a 2 year old, approx. 15 pound, Chihuahua/Terrier mix! We rescued Kyra from the East Valley Shelter in November 2009, after she was redlisted (set to be killed), simply due to lack of kennel space at the shelter. We placed Kyra into a wonderful foster home who worked with her on her soon to be discovered separation anxiety. Kyra progressed nicely in a loving, patient, and consistent environment and is now doing much better with her behavioral issues. Her foster mom fell completely in love with her and decided to adopt her! Kyra is now living with her new mom, and cat sibling, in Beverly Hills!

  Brownie024.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Brownie in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 1/31/10

Brownie is a 7 year old, approx. 51 pound, Shepard/American Staffordshire Terrier mix! We rescued Brownie from the East Valley Shelter in November 2009, after he was redlisted (set to be killed), due to lack of space at the shelter. At first, we had a hard time finding a good foster home for Brownie. Out of no fault of his own, for one reason or another, his first two foster homes did not work out for him. Thankfully, we were able to finally find a wonderful foster home for Brownie that had other pets and kids for him to hang out with, until he was able to find his permanent home. Brownie was adopted by a loving couple located in San Diego. He now has a permanent mom, dad, house (with a yard!), and foster (hopefully soon-to-be permanent!) 11 year old Labrador Retriever sister to call his own!

~Congratulations to Lobster in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 1/9/10

Lobster is a 1 year old, approx. 55 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier mix! We rescued him from the East Valley Shelter in July 2009 after he was redlisted (set to be killed) due to lack of space at the shelter. We placed Lobster in a foster home, then he went to our trainer to perfect his manners and help with his dog socialization. Lobster found a wonderful, loving home in Spring Valley with his new mom, dad, and 3 human siblings, who will spoil him like crazy and treat him as a true member of the family!

~Congratulations to Ryan in finding his fur-ever home~ Adopted on 12/15/09

Ryan is is a 6 year old, 66 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier/Mastiff mix! We rescued Ryan from the South LA Shelter in October 2009, after he was redlisted (set to be killed), and already starting to give up hope. Ryan was known at the shelter as the "sad, depressed poster boy for unwanted Pit Bills". Everybody could tell that Ryan had been through so much, and that he was not treated properly in the past. His skin was in horrible condition, he looked so hopeless, and his time at the shelter was quickly running short. We rescued Ryan right before he was scheduled to be killed. We placed him in boarding at our vet while he recovered from his URI (Upper Respiratory Infection), had them give him a medicated bath to help his skin, and got him a much needed deworming! After Ryan was healthy again, we had him neutered and then placed him in a wonderful foster-to-adopt home in San Diego. Long story short, Ryan has now found his permanent home with his foster family and is truly living a fairy tale! He now has a home with a yard, and a family of his very own. He has other doggie siblings, as well as a human baby and new mom and dad to shower him in love! Above are pictures of Ryan enjoying life on his first happy "Thanksgiving trip" to his new family's property in Lake Tahoe! After 6 long years of neglect by his previous "owner" (prior to shelter impound), Ryan has finally found a loving, permanent home where he will be forever treated like a member of the family and never have to sleep on the cold cement ever again!

 SadieStray025.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Sadie in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 12/2/09

Sadie is a 9 year old, 40 pound, Corgi/Labrador Retriever mix! We took Sadie into our rescue in September 2009 after we found her as a stray and could not locate her previous owner. We were actually very surprised we were not able to find her owner, as she was in great shape and very socialized! We had Sadie seen by our vet and then placed her in a foster home while we looked for her owner. After we could not find her owner, Sadie's foster mom informed us that Sadie had already stolen her heart and that she would like to adopt her! Sadie is now a permanent member of their family; living with her new mom and dad in Sherman Oaks!

  Jasper029.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Jasper in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 11/8/09

Jasper is a 6 month old, approx. 41 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier mix! We rescued Jasper from the East Valley Shelter in September 2009 after he was greenlisted (set to be killed) due to overcrowding at the shelter. When Jasper was impounded at the shelter, his right hind femur bone was fractured. Once we rescued Jasper, we had him seen by our orthopedic specialist immediately. X-rays showed that Jasper's leg had already healed on it's own while he was at the shelter; although, it did not heal the way it should have. The specialist said that Jasper's leg was fine to leave "as is"; there was no limping, or pain, and he did not recommend having corrective surgery (FHO- Femoral Head Ostectomy Surgery) done on it at that time. He informed us that when Jasper gets older, he may need the surgery if his leg starts giving him problems, or he may develop arthritis in that leg due to that injury. Jasper needed to find a special home who understood these circumstances and were willing/able to financially care for him if problems with it were to arise in the future. Jasper is also a very shy boy, leading us to strongly believe that he was abuse (prior to being impounded at the shelter), as he is very timid when meeting new people; although, he is continuously working on this issue and is starting to learn that not all humans will hurt him. Initially, the shelter staff thought Jasper was injured by being hit by a car, as he had car oil on his back when impounded. Although, another suggestion was that Jasper was being abused by somebody (or a group of people), causing the injury, then hid under a car to try to get away. This would better explain Jasper's fear of meeting new people. On a much happier note, Jasper has found the most perfect home with his new mom and dad in Monterey Park! They go on daily walks, frequent trips to the dog park, have already taken him on a hike at Runyon Canyon, and are doing wonders with him in his socialization!

~Congratulations to Maple in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 11/1/09

Maple is a 6 year old, 6 pound, Chihuahua! We rescued Maple from the Carson Shelter in August 2009. She had previously been impounded at that shelter, then adopted by a member of the public, and then returned. When Maple was returned, she had a puncture wound on her head and had severe brusing on her head, like she was struck and/or kicked by somebody. Maple was born with a deformity in both her hind legs, but that does not stop her; she is one happy girl! Maple was placed in a foster home, until she found her loving, permanent home in Thousand Oaks with her new mom, dad, and doggie brother (another Chihuahua)!

~Congratulations to Lilac in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 11/1/09

Lilac is an 2 year old, approx. 65 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier mix! She was redlisted (set to be killed) at the South LA Shelter and was soon to loose her life. Another rescue had committed to rescuing Lilac, but they backed out at the last minute, leaving her at the shelter to die the very next morning! Our rescue stepped up just in time, and pulled Lilac to safety in February 2009. When she was impounded at the shelter as a stray, she was pregnant. The shelter had her spayed and aborted all her babies. We put Lilac through professional training, to perfect her manners and commands to help her find a great home. Lilac has found a wonderful, permanent home with her new dad in Brea!

~Congratulations to Cesar in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 10/7/09

Cesar is a 10 year old, 8 pound, Maltese/Poodle mix! We rescued Cesar from the East Valley Shelter in August 2009, after he was greenlisted (put on the list to be killed). He was impounded at the shelter with his teeth in horrible condition and had a fractured jaw. The shelter was able to extract a few of his teeth for him, but he still needed further dental work done. We took Cesar to a Dental Specialist where he was diagnosed with sereve gum disease, had the remainder of his teeth extracted, and his mouth cleaned and all fixed up. At the time of his two week check-up with the dentist, it was determined that Cesar's jaw had in fact healed on its own with scar tissue! Cesar also has a slight heart murmur that we had an Echocardiogram done on to determine where exactly the murmur is located and what the severeity of it is. Cesar has been adopted by his wonderful foster mom and doggie sister located in Laguna Niguel!

~Congratulations to Billy in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 9/25/09

Billy is an 8 year old, 25 pound, Lhasa Apso! We rescued Billy from the East Valley Shelter in July 2009, after he was greenlisted and at high risk of loosing his life. When Billy was impounded at the shelter, his coat was severely matted and his teeth were in bad condition. The shelter was able to shave his mats off for him, and once in our rescue, he recieved the much needed dental work he had obviously been waiting so long for! He then went to a foster home who took wonderful care of him and prepared him nicely for his permanent home. Billy is now living with his new mom and dad located in San Diego!

~Congratulations to Maggie in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 9/15/09

Maggie is a 1 1/2 year old, 15 pound, Poodle/Lhasa Apso mix! When Maggie was a puppy, she was bought from a local pet store, but unfortunately, Maggie's owners could no longer keep her, and they surrendered her back to the pet store when she was 1 1/2 years old. We were asked by the owner of the pet store to find Maggie a permanent home. Maggie is now permanently living with her new mom, dad, grandparents, cat sibling, and dog siblings in Escondidio!

~Congratulations to Kahula in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 8/29/09

Kahula is a 2 year old, 8 pound, Toy Fox Terrier/Chihuahua mix! We rescued Kahula from the East Valley Shelter in July 2009 after she was greenlisted (put on the list to be killed). She had obviously had a very hard past, as she was very shy, timid, and nervous around strangers. We found a wonderful foster/trial home for Kahula who understood her, was willing to work with her issues, and who has done wonders helping her come out of her shell! Kahula has been adopted by her trial parents, and is now living a happy, spoiled life with them and her 3 new cat siblings in the Los Angeles area!

~Congratulations to Luna in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted 8/22/09

Luna is a 2 year old, 68 pound American Bulldog/American Pit Bull Terrier mix! Our rescue took Luna in after she was found as a stray one night strolling down a very busy street. Her owners could not be located, so she was placed up for adoption. Luna has a wonderful temperament and is an extremely sweet dog. She has one blue eye, one brown eye, and an upside-down "Mickey Mouse head" on her side. Luna has found her wonderful fur-ever home with her new mom in Granada Hills!

  MarabelleGotBiscuts031.jpg picture by leashanimalrescue

~Congratulations to Marabelle in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 8/19/09

Marabelle is a 5 year old, 62 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier! We rescued Marabelle off the streets of Inglewood in August 2008. Marabelle was found as a stray by a member of the public and surrendered to our rescue. She was full of scars, some of her teeth were chipped, and part of her ear was torn. Due to these injuries, it was obvious that Marabelle was previously used as a bait dog in dog fights. Marabelle was also very skinny and had obviously been abused. Although, despite her hard life being joining our rescue, Marabelle is the sweetest dog in the world! She is great with other dogs, cats, and kids! Marabelle helped "mother" orphan kittens in her foster home and is now permanently living in her fur-ever home with her new mom, dad, 7 year old autistic human brother, and her new cat siblings, located in Spring Valley!

~Congratulations to Scout in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 7/22/09

Scout is a 2 year old, 10 pound, Chihuahua/Terrier mix! We rescued Scout from the East Valley Shelter in June 2009 after he was greenlisted (put on the list to be killed). The shelter staff said he was a wonderful, friendly dog, but looked like "just another dog", so he wasn't getting adopted. We acknowledged that Scout was a special little guy, and we rescued him just in time. Scout was adopted by his foster parents and their little dog, located in Culver City!

~Congratulations to Baxter in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 7/9/09

Baxter is a 7 year old, approx. 15 pound, Shih Tzu! We rescued Baxter from the East Valley Shelter in May 2009 after he was redlisted (set to be killed) and at huge risk of loosing his life. When he was impounded at the shelter, his coat was severely matted (down to the skin) causing him extreme pain when he moved. Thankfully, the shelter was able to shave him and make him feel a little more comfortable. We placed Baxter into a foster home, who he instantly won over with his silly personality and puppy-like antics, so they adopted him! Baxter is now living a loving, spoiled life with his new mom and dad in Fullerton!

~Congratulations to Mika in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 6/29/09

Mika is a 3 month old, approx. 15 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer mix! We took Mika into our rescue when she was only 5 weeks old, after she was found as a stray, and was placed available for adoption at the age of 8 weeks of age. Mika found the perfect fur-ever home with her new mom, dad, brother, sister, cat friend, and dog companions located in Santee!

~Congratulations to Roo in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 6/27/09

Roo is a 4 year old, approx. 15 pound, Chihuahua mix! We rescued Roo, along with 4 other Chihuahua mixes, from the East Valley Shelter in January 2009, after they were seized from a hoarder (along with 40 other dogs)! All 5 of the hoarder Chihuahua mixes we rescued were very shy and extremely under socialized. They were not use to being touched by people, nor were they use to being around people at all, and were very nervous and timid dogs. Roo was the oldest of the group we rescued, and miraculously progressed the quickest! It took A LOT of time, patience, understanding, and love, but now Roo is a wonderful little companion and family member! He was adopted by his foster parents who are IN LOVE with him and his sweet demeanor. His new mom often takes him on errands and on camping trips; he is the perfect little companion! Roo is now fur-ever living with his new mom, dad, brothers, sister, and doggie and kitty friends!

~Congratulations to Caleb in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 6/26/09

Caleb is a 17 year old, approx. 10 pound, Shih Tzu! We rescued Caleb from the Carson Shelter in May 2009. About a month prior to taking Caleb into our rescue, his previous "owners" dumped him at the shelter and requested he be euthanized (killed). Thankfully, that particular shelter does not euthanize animals upon request (as long as the animal is healthy and not suffering/in pain), so they hung onto Caleb and put him up for adoption! Once we got Caleb out of the shelter, he immediately saw our vet and had a "Senior Profile" done, where blood and urine tests were preformed, and surprisingly, came back 100% clean! Caleb does has a slight heart murmur and a "dry eye" condition, but is otherwise very healthy and is now in extremely good shape for his age! Caleb is now happily living in his fur-ever home with his new mom and doggie sister in Toluca Lake!

~Congratulations to Lila in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 6/6/09

Lila is a 1 year old, approx. 60 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier/Boxer mix! We rescued Lila from the Orange County Shelter in June 2008, when she was just a little puppy! In short, she was adopted out in September 2008, but in February 2009 became "lost" and her owners at the time did not even bother to go looking for her! Our rescue was not alerted that she went "missing" until 2 months after the fact! Thankfully, and against all odds, we found Lila sitting in a kennel at the "owners" local animal shelter. She had been there the entire time she was "missing", and per the shelter staff, nobody had come looking for her. This all sounded a little fishy, but we were just glad that Lila was okay. It was truly a miracle that she was still at that shelter, alive, and waiting to go home! We immediately got her out of the shelter and placed her in a foster home. Lila is now living in her REAL fur-ever home with her new dad and doggie brother in Riverside!

~Congratulations to Chauncey in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 5/17/09

Chauncey is a 15 year old, 10 pound, Shih Tzu mix! Chauncey was dumped to die at the South LA Shelter in February 2009 by his so-called "owners". Chauncey was very skinny, his coat was in poor condition, he had a severe ear infection, and an infection/scabbing under his chin. He was quickly "redlisted" (set to be killed) and just hours away from loosing his life at the shelter. Our rescue pulled him from the shelter, took him directly to our vet, and found a wonderful foster home for him. While at his foster home he received much love, attention, and affection from his foster mom! He was given soothing baths and good groomings; now his coat is as soft and as fluffy as ever! Due to Chauncey's age, we were not sure how much longer he had to live, or if he would ever find a fur-ever home, but we did know that at least he would finally be surrounded by love, in a safe and warm environment. Against all odds, Chauncey found a fabulous fur-ever home with a man who is very experienced with his breed! Chauncey is now living with his new dad, Shih Tzu, Lab, and cat siblings in North Hollywood!

~Congratulations to Smores in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 5/15/09

Smores is a 1 year old, 40 pound, American Staffordshire Terrier/Shepard mix! Smores was redlisted (set to be killed) at the South LA Shelter and was soon to loose his life. Another rescue committed to rescuing Smores, but they backed out at the last minute, leaving him at the shelter to die the very next morning! Our rescue stepped up just in time, and pulled Smores to safety in February 2009. However, one thing we were not informed about prior to agreeing to rescue him was that he had an orthopedic condition that gave him much trouble when walking, playing, and running around. We took Smores to see an orthopedic specialist, got x-rays of the leg, and it was determined that he needed surgery. Apparently, prior to Smores being impounded at the shelter, his left hind leg was fractured. His "owners" at that time failed to seek medical assistance for him, so his leg healed incorrectly; bowed out to the side, and forcing him to walk with a very noticeable limp. In short, the surgical procedure consisted of "re-braking" his leg, and setting it correctly so the leg can heal properly. Thankfully, our rescue found an extremely generous organization who sponsored Smores' surgery and now he will be able to run around and play with other dogs, pain and discomfort free! Smores is now living happily with his new human and dog companions located in San Diego!

~Congratulations to Skippy in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 5/6/09

Skippy is a 2 year old, 6 pound Chihuahua! We rescued Skippy from the South LA Shelter in March 2009, where he was "redlisted" (set to be killed) and suffering from a skin condition called Demodex Mange (a non-contagious form of mange). Skippy saw our vet a multiple of times and was finally cleared from his skin condition. This little lover boy found the PERFECT home with his new mom, dad, and siblings (cats and dogs) in Escondido!

~Congratulations to Toby in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 4/24/09

Toby is a 10 month old, 5 pound, longhaired Chihuahua! Our rescue took Toby in after he was found as a stray, alone and abandon on the streets. Prior to being found, Toby's left eye was severely injured; however, his previous owners failed to seek proper medical help for him. Toby was in pain and discomfort so we immediately took him to see our vet. Unfortunately, his eye was too severely damaged to be saved and for Toby's sake, we had his eye surgically removed. After his surgery, Toby began to show his true self (a playful little boy who LOVES attention!). Toby was lucky enough to quickly find his fur-ever home with his new mom in Studio City, where he will have a wonderful life running, playing, and flying from couch to couch in his new home!

~Congratulations to Hershey in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 4/4/09

Hershey is a 2 year old, 60 pound, American Pit Bull terrier mix! Hershey was redlisted (set to be killed) at the South LA Shelter and was soon to loose her life.

Our rescue stepped up just in time, and pulled Hershey to safety in February 2009. Hershey was placed into a loving foster home until she found her fur-ever home! Hershey is now living with her wonderful new mom, dad, and doggie brother located in Winnetka!

~Congratulations to Elfie in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 3/10/09

Elfie is a 3 year old, 65 pound, American Staffordshire Terrier! Elfie was redlisted (set to be killed) at the Harbor Shelter in San Pedro. Our rescue pulled her in April 2008 and found out that Elfie had a severe ear condition, called Cauliflower Ear. She had ear infections that were so far neglected by her previous "owners" that she was in extreme pain and discomfort. Elfie was put on daily medication (ear washes/drops, antibiotics, etc.) to help control her pain and discomfort, but Elfie needed more than just medication. Elfie saw a specialist and in July 2008 had surgery done on both her ears. The procedure was called Ear Ablation, in which her entire ear canals (in both ears) were removed. Elfie ears were then all cleaned up, and sewn shut (as you can see in her picture above). The specialist said Elfie would be completely deaf after her surgery; however, she was not! Elfie could still hear squeaky toys, clapping, whistling, and her name is said in the right tone. With no more pain and discomfort, Elfie was able to start to enjoy life again! Elfie was adopted by a wonderful Marine family in San Clemente where she will be able to be a part of the family, go on trips to the dog park, and lounge around the house with her new mom, dad, and human sister!

~Congratulations to Roach in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 2/27/09

Roach is a 2 year old, 76 pound, American Pit Bull Terrier/Rottie mix!

Ella is a 2 year old, 12 pound, longhaired Chihuahua mix! We rescued Ella from the South LA Shelter in July 2008. She was redlisted (set to be killed) as she had a dislocated knee cap and lorn ligament in her left hind leg. We had a supporter of our rescue willing to medically sponser Ella, so we pulled her from the shelter and had her examined by an orthopedic specialist. Ella's leg required expensive surgery, which we had done for her as soon as possible. Her recovery time was 3 months, and she is still building the muscle back up in her leg so she properly use her leg again! Ella is now in a wonderful home with her loving new mom and dad!

 

~Congratulations to Tilly in finding her fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 11/26/08

Tilly is a 1 year old, 10 pound, Chihuahua/Terrier mix! We rescued Tilly from the North Central Shelter in September 2008! Tilly was redlisted (set to be killed) and was on the "rescue only" listed, because she was extremely terrified and overwelmed in the shelter environment. She bit out of pure fear and was therefore labeled as "aggressive". Once we were able to get her out of that scary, horrible environment, Tilly was then able to show her true colors! Once she gets to know you, she will be your best friend! She is such a sweet girl and is a wonderful lap dog! She loves attention and to being around her human companions. Tilly is now living with her fur-ever family, with a beautiful house and HUGE backyard in the Hollywood Hills area!

~Congratulations to Kirby in finding his fur-ever home!~ Adopted on 10/24/08

Kirby is an 8 month old, light brown with white markings, 50 pound, American Staffordshire Terrier . We rescued Kirby from the South LA Shelter in April 2008, when he was only 2 months old. He was REDLISTED (set to be killed) due to a heart condition. Kirby had an enlarged heart and a grade 3 heart murmur. After we rescued Kirby, we took him to a cardio specialist and had an echocardiogram done of his heart to determine the cause and severity of his condition. Kirby suffers from Pulmonic Stenosis, a possible life-threatening condition, and needed a surgical procedure called Balloon Valvuloplasty done on his heart to help correct his condition. His surgery was over $2,300. The procedure helped his heart a great deal, but Kirby will continue to be on daily medication for the rest of his life. Kirby was adopted by his wonderful foster mom and will live have a happy, fun-filled life with her!
