Dolly: A Beautiful Transformation

What a success story! An amazing transformation … one rescue dog’s story!

Watch Dolly’s rescue video now.

As rescuers, the most rewarding part of what we do is being an active part of the miraculous transformation of a dog in need. Dolly the poodle is one such magical rescue story.

We received a call from a woman in Sylmar, saying that a very matted, stray dog had been scrounging for food in trash cans in a vacant lot for months. She had tried to catch her, but to no avail, so was finally reaching out to rescue. With the help of Eldad Hagar of Hope for Paws, we managed to get Dolly that same day. She was in such horrific shape it was shocking even to us well seasoned rescuers. Dolly could barely see, and her matted fur was so heavy and thick it was tearing from her skin. What pain she must have endured. We rushed her immediately to the groomers where they shaved her, and removed 10 pounds of matting from this 15 pound dog! Once in a foster home, Dolly began to thrive. With lots of TLC and good nutrition she was ready for a home within a month. She was adopted, along with another rescue poodle that we had, by a wonderful woman. Dolly, now named Paris, lives the good life with her poodle sister, Nicky, in a lovely house in Cheviot Hills.

Its dog’s like Dolly that keep us doing the work we do…saving one dog at a time.

With your continued support, we are able to rescue more dogs like Paris!

Bella Bambina and Kobe need a home!

Bella Bambina and Kobe were abandoned in a house in Sylmar when their owners moved out over a week ago!

Bella Bambina is a seven month old poodle puppy. She is good with dogs, cats and
people. She has a tongue that hangs out of her mouth, is a total sweetheart and is happy go lucky!

Kobe is a year and a half and is a male chi of six pounds. Very sweet, a bit scared but very loving once he warms up. He is quite the snuggler!

Both need loving forever homes or fosters!!!
