Griffie - Labrador Retriever (Los Angeles, CA)

Griffie is an 11 year old Labrador Retriever who was left at the shelter by his owner with another. The other dog was adopted and Griffie is looking for a place to crash.

He's house-trained, as gentle as can be, and just loves to be held. He's low-energy, so he's perfect for older folks who are looking for a mellow pet that is happy to get out for a few leisurely walks each day. He's got great leash manners.

He's great when he's around people, but being in the kennel is taking its toll on him. He gets along with everyone, including other dogs, cats, and children.

He's had all of his shots, has been neutered, and doesn't have any other health issues that anyone can tell.

Given a second chance, he's the perfect addition to any pack.

For more information on how you can meet and either foster or adopt him, contact Debbie at:

He's in Los Angeles County, but for the right home, he'll be transported within Southern California. He's currently at the Castiac Shelter.

Thor - Chihuahua Mix (San Diego, CA)

Thor is a 12-14-year old neutered, tan Chihuahua mix who weighs about 13 lbs. He is blind, and needs a home to enjoy his remaining years. He is a sweet little guy who loves to cuddle. He's good around any creature--people, children, other dogs or cats. An ideal home for Thor would be a loving mellow home where people are home most of the time (e.g., an older retired couple or someone who wants to take a mellow dog most everywhere they go).

Additional pictures of Thor are available on his Adopt-A-Pet page.

PLEASE CONTACT Carla at , or call (410) 746-5173.

Peppy Chihuahua/Dachshund Mix (San Diego,CA)

Hi, my name is Peppy

Aren't I beautiful? I'm a little sad right now because my Mom just passed away....she was my constant companion. I might be timid when you first meet me, but once you gain my trust, I will be totally devoted to you. One of my very favorite things is going for car rides. 

I'm most content just being by your side all of the time. I hope I can find someone who will be patient with me. And once we get to know each other, I promise to delight you with my sweet and funny personality. I'm 14 years old,11 pounds & I do prefer to be your one & only. 

Will you be my special someone to adore me for the rest of my life?

Peppy xoxo

You can get in contact with Peppy through the Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego

Notes from the Pooch: Many, many people were contacted to help find Peppy a new home. I'd like to thank Chihuahua Rescue of San Diego for standing up for Peppy in her time of need and all of the support from other folks who reached into their address books to find any and every contact that they could to help find Peppy a better life.

Sammy - Mixed Breed (San Diego, CA)

Sammy, a lovable mixed breed 12 year old mutt looking for a home in Southern CA.

Sammy's a 12 year old mixed breed dog available for adoption. 

His owner has some health challenges and while it breaks his heart, he can no longer care for Sammy the way he deserves and would like to find him a wonderful forever home to live out the rest of his days.

He's had Sammy since he was 8 months old when he rescued Sammy from a shelter in the Moreno area. He loves the dog parks and trails and the beach and is good on a leash or in the backyard.

He may have lost a step, but he still gets around. He's up to date on his shots and loves children, cats, and other dogs as well.

If you're interested in Sammy (and we hope you are), please contact Stretton at: 619-408-3647 or email him at:

Phillipe - Mixed Breed (West Los Angeles, CA)

Phillipe is a darling little 14 year old (9 pounds) rescued from North Central about a month ago. He is seeking a backup foster home, or a new foster home, with a yard and who is home more often.

He is great with other pets, and very loving, but after 14 years as a backyard dog (we believe) he is not housebreaking easily in a foster home that works full time and doesnt have a yard.

If you are interested in being his new foster home, or in helping to give his foster momma breaks, or perhaps take him and try to housebreak him, please contact Bonnie at

He is already neutered, vaccinated, chipped, dewormed, and is getting a dental on Sunday, May 13th. He is displaying a very, very MILD cough, which could be kennel cough, or could be symptoms of heart issues. We believe he is in his last year of life and he must be spoiled whereever he goes.

I'd like to thank Bonnie for sharing Phillipe with us. If anyone has a little room at their place (and heart) and can give Phillipe a great home for the rest of his life, I'm sure his love will pay you back triple what you give.
