Sweet Penelope was saved from our local kill shelter just in the nick of time. She is 10 years old and was extremely stressed and scared in a shelter environment. She refused to eat and was just skin and bones. Penelope has been in our care for a couple weeks now and has made huge improvements. Her foster mom is giving her extra love and care, and has managed to get Penelope to eat liquified food. She is even potty trained now! Penelope has some pretty advanced dental disease which we are addressing to help her feel more comfortable. She is super lovable and and loves sitting in your lap. She’ll nudge you with her nose for more pets. Poor Penelope just needs a safe and loving home to heal her heart and little body.
Scruffy is approximately 3 years old and about 22 lbs. He was found roaming the streets and safely caught by members of the amazing Doggie Task Force (search and rescue team). We have not had any luck locating his owners. For now, Scruffy is safe and loved in a temporary foster home. From what we've learned so far, he is an all around sweet dog who just wants to be around humans. He currently lives with several other dogs and is very dog friendly! Scruffy has such a huge personality in a tiny doggo body. He would make a lucky family very happy to have him!
Mabel's rescue is truly incredible. It all started when someone posted online they saw a dog running into the desert on the east side of town. Some of our volunteers, along with volunteers from the Doggie Task Force of Las Vegas immediately went out to this desert area. They were out there for 2 days attempting to locate the dog. After flying a drone in the area with no luck, volunteers went searching on an ATV. Finally, they spotted her hiding in a cave on a mountain. Several team members hiked up to help capture her safely. They could immediately see she had just given birth to puppies, but unfortunately the puppies were nowhere to be found. This desert area is a popular dumping ground for unwanted dogs, and we believe she was used for breeding then dumped. Mabel is approximately 1-3 years old and a German Sheperd female, about 54 lbs. She is a very sweet girl and very food motivated. She is timid and we are working on improving her social skills. The good news is she is eager please and learn, and she just wants to be loved!
On Saturday, April 8th this sweet guy was rescued off the streets of East Las Vegas while digging through trash for food. He had been spotted running around for days before his capture. We don’t know where he came from or who his original owners are, but we are naming him Artemis for now. What we do know is Artemis was having a real hard time. He was admitted to the emergency vet due to vomiting, bloody diarrhea, and a 104 degree fever. He was severely dehydrated and has no appetite. Thankfully after 3 days in emergency care and $3,600 later, Artemis is finally resting comfortably in his foster home. So far, his foster mom tells us he is a gentle and loving soul. He can be bit scared around new humans, but he is working hard at learning how to be confident in scary situations.
Buddha (lighter one) and his brother Budderball (tan one) were found roaming the streets of east Las Vegas as stray puppies. These babies were lost and confused, how could they possibly survive out in this big scary world on their own? One of our rescue members located the backyard they escaped from and learned the owners no longer wanted these puppies. Luckily for the boys, our rescue welcomed them with open arms. They are not bonded, which means they do not have to be adopted out together. They have lots and lots of puppy energy, and can play all day until they are physically separated. They are rambunctious little guys and will need continued puppy training to thrive in their new homes!
Biggie Smalls is teeny tiny guy! He is about 6 years young and absolutely adorable. His foster mom tells us he is for the most part potty trained and highly treat motivated. Biggie is a little shy and skittish around strangers. Our team feels best with him going to an adult only home. He is very loyal and will attach himself quickly to his human. He would be great for someone who work from home, or is retired. Biggie Smalls just wants to be sitting on his human's lap all day and receive lots of love and attention. He will tolerate another dog in the home, but he will not go out of his way to initiate play. He really is more of a people dog, ya know?
We were contacted by a good samaritan one day who found this abandoned, beautiful girl. It appeared like she recently had puppies, but was severely emaciated. On top of this, she couldn’t bear weight on her back right leg. We were able to find a wonderful foster home who offered to take her in while she recovered from a leg amputation. Love is our rescue's first tri-pod! The vet believes it’s an old injury and caused by blunt force trauma. Whoever had Love previously kept her with a shattered leg to birth her puppies and then threw her out like trash to be found hiding in a shed! Despite her horrible past, she is the SWEETEST little pibble we have ever met. Please consider inquiring about Love, the pittie who could!
Alaska is believed to be German Shepherd & Husky mix. He is just a few months old and has lots of growing to do! He is a typical puppy- lots of energy and is curious about everything around the house! He will need continued puppy training so he grows to be the best boy possible. His foster family tells us he is getting a lot better about being in the crate, hasn't had any accidents in his crate for over a week! As most puppies, he is still getting the hang of potty training. He is a smart boy and is learning very quickly. We are told he is a bottomless pit and will scarf down all his food quickly and swiftly! Alaska is a very happy pup who will play play play all day. He will be best off in a home with another pup who also likes to play, as he may be too rowdy for dogs who like their space. Alaska is still learning the concept of personal space!
This sweet, beautiful girl was surviving in the desert for several weeks and was finally caught. Like many other dogs found in this desert area, we believe she was most likely dumped. What we know so far about Ari is she is extremely sweet and gentle. She would be an absolute dream addition to any home! Ari is curious about the world, she loves exploring! There are zero signs of aggression. She does great with other dogs of all sizes and does wonderfully when out and about. She does just fine around cats as well. We would prefer her to be around kids older than 12 since she is more on the mellow side. Ari is kennel trained, does great during bath time, and is partially leash trained (doesn’t pull, just doesn’t walk in a straight line just yet). She is a very quiet girl, and does not bark or howl. She loves laying in grass and seeks love and attention from humans. She is just a gentle doll!

Sweet Athena was one of our rescue's very first dogs we took in almost 3 years ago. She was originally found inside an abandoned apartment when her first owners decided to discard her like trash when they moved out. Since then, Athena has bounced around to different foster homes and just cannot seem to find her place in the world. Athena loves her toys, sunbathing, mid day snoozes, and playing in her kiddie pool. She has never had a stable home of her own, and we really want her to learn the true meaning of family. She absolutely loves all humans and will follow you anywhere. Athena is about 5 years young and so deserving of love! She would do just fine with another large dog in the home and an experienced handler. No cats or small animals.
We were contacted by someone driving into Vegas from California regarding 2 dogs running on the freeway with 2 leashes attached. One dog was microchipped, but the phone number was not valid. Through lots and lots of investigation and scouring the areas, we finally found the owner. Unfortunately, she is unable to take care of these dogs properly. For now we desperately need a foster for this pittie puppy who has now become homeless through no fault of her own. Her fur-sibling is still in boarding at the moment as well while we attempt to find them both more stable foster homes. Ginger is very sweet, dog friendly, but will need some basic puppy training. Please reach out if you can help!
Howdy! My name is Indigo, friends call me Indi for short. My foster mommy and daddy tell me I’m a very good girl. I love when they tell me I’m beautiful too I don't know my birthday but I think I am about 1-2 years old. I listen very well and always alert the crew when I need to go potty outside. My previous owners put me outside one day, moved away and never came back. I was waiting for them...but they never came. I lack confidence and am learning how to be less fearful. I would love a human with breed experience to help me realize the world is not a scary place. I am not the best with other animals, but still want to find my furever humans!
TOM & JERRY
Check out these cute couch ornaments! They are approximately 8 years old, but don’t let that number confuse you. Tom and Jerry have plenty of spunk and energy to keep you on your toes. These boys are a bonded elderly couple. They like to bicker and compete for attention, but truly love each other so much. They want to be around each other at all times, adorable! Both boys are friendly and playful with other dogs and children! They are comfortable with being in a crate and are potty trained. Tom & Jerry are just the funniest and spunkiest duo who have lots of love to give. Why have one doofus when you can have two?!
Baby Rottie alert! This 11 month old beauty queen has found herself in a pickle. Her parents moved out of town and she was not able to tag along. For now she is hanging out in a temporary foster home. Coco absolutely loves water and is always excited to jump in the pool...she even gets excited for bath time! She currently lives in a foster home with two other dogs and has a blast playing with her foster fur-siblings! Poor Coco lacks confidence around strangers though, and can take a few minutes to warm up to new people and environments. She is still young and easily trainable. Her foster mom is working hard to socialize her and help her understand the world is not a scary place. Coco is making huge improvements and is doing so much better each and every day. Will you give Coco a shot at furever happiness?
Any Beagle lovers out there?! Jaxon is a 4 year old beagle mix and a fan favorite amongst our rescue members! He just might be the friendliest dog we have ever had in rescue. Jaxon gets along with every single human and dog, big or small. He loves everyone and everything in life. At his first adoption event, Jaxon had a blast sitting on everyone's lap! He is a crowd pleaser and knows it. Jaxon hops right into any car and sits wonderfully during the car ride. He is very treat motivated and eager to please. Jaxon would fit in anywhere! Please reach out to meet this perfect boy!
Look at this big girl! Chiquita was found running scared from fireworks on the 4th of July. She has been homeless ever since then and her family is nowhere to be found. Poor Chiquita has been lost and no one seems to be looking for her. She deserves to have a family and home of her very own. Her foster family tells us she is potty trained and actually enjoys bath time! She identifies as a chihuahua and wants to sit pretty on your lap at all times. Chiquita is an absolute sweetheart, cuddle bug, wicked smart, and a quick learner. She would do well in an active home that doesn't mind a big lap dog in their personal space.
Poor Sammy has not had an easy life. She recently made the local news when her dad decided to lock her in a hot car in the middle of July. It's a miracle she even survived the 45 minutes of torture. Sammy's dad was arrested for animal cruelty and she was surrendered to our rescue. Although this little granny is 13 years old and in the sunset years of her life, she is an absolute baby. She loves attention, has plenty of pep in her step and is extremely grateful to be in her foster home. Sammy is human and dog friendly and has the sweetest soul we've ever seen. Please give Sammy another shot at happiness.
Our rescue was contacted to help this little girl with a broken leg. Little did we know she was very much pregnant, and she actually gave birth shortly after her rescue. Lulu is going through so many changes being in a new environment, being a new mommy, and also dealing with the pain of her broken leg. She needs a home where she can feel safe and secure. Lulu is naturally a bit protective of her babies, but will eventually warm up to you with enough time and love. She is very shy and timid around new people, and we do not believe she has ever been socialized. Can you help out this good girl? She deserves to know what a forever family feels like.
Cutie patootie Charlie boy is in search of his perfect family! He does great with children and other dogs, and has a very playful and energetic personality! He recently started walking into his crate for nap time and stays in the crate nicely when his foster mom leaves the home. He doesn't seem to like a collar and leash, so he definitely needs more positive experiences with walks. Charlie would do best with other dogs who will be okay with his playful personality. He likes to bark and wrestle with other pups, so he may be too much for a mellow dog. Charlie overall is such a great boy, he would be an amazing addition to your home!
Willow is an 8 month old Husky/ Malamute mix and one of the newest additions to our rescue pack. She was surrendered by her family who felt she needed a better home than they could provide. She is currently in foster care learning how to be the best girl! Even though she is young, she is extremely smart and food motivated. She has lots of energy and wants to play play play all day. She would thrive with another dog sibling her size. Willow is a toy stealing bandit, and absolutely loves her stuffies. She is for the most part crate and potty trained, but will need some continued puppy training when it comes to walking on the leash.
Saturn is a little boy and a Husky/ German Shepherd mix. He is a brave little boy and curious about the world. This adventurous pup loves playing with his sisters all day and would do well in any home with other dogs or children! Saturn has such a fun personality and is sure to provide many years of love and laughter!
Nova is a little girl and a Husky/ German Shepherd mix. She was born without a right paw but that doesn't slow her down! She gets around just fine and is a happy, playful baby. She is definitely one of the cuddlier puppies from her litter and constantly seeks attention and love.
Gemini is a little girl and a Husky/ German Shepherd mix. She is very human and dog friendly and does wonderfully around children as well! Gemini is such a beauty and has the brains to match. She is a people pleaser and eager to learn new tricks. She is doing great with potty training and crate training!
Willy is approximately 9 years young and was found roaming the Vegas streets as a stray dog. It took our team several hours to catch him safely! Willy is safe for now, however we need to find him a temporary foster home while we search for his perfect family! Willy is very sweet and cuddly, he absolutely loves attention! He is potty trained, crate trained, and listens very well to commands. He even stands on his back legs to get a laugh out of you! This sweet boy is dog friendly and cat friendly, however kids may be too much for him. He can be a bit skiddish at times, so a quieter home would suite his needs best.
Do we have any Shiba lovers out there?! Kohi has been returned to our rescue after being adopted in January 2023. His family can no longer care for him properly, so we are on a mission to find him a better fit! Kohi is 1.5 years old and would benefit from a family with Shiba experience! No small children for this boy, he wants to be the baby of the family. Although he is not aggressive with children, he does like to play finders keepers with toys. Kohi is dog friendly and has a very bubbly personality! He would do great in a home where he can receive lots of love, attention, and exercise.
Espie is a very fragile and special case. We want this girl to find the perfect forever home after all she has been through. Unfortunately Espie has been homeless for most of her life. She is only about 1.5 years old and is a cattle dog mix. Poor Espie was a stray living on her own for about one year. We finally rescued her and brought her safely into a temporary foster home. She has been in survival mode for so long, naturally she is still learning how to trust humans. She feels safe around other dogs and has even learned how to play with them! This breed requires plenty of space and mental/ physical stimulation. She has lots of energy and would thrive in a home with a backyard, or a very active family who can put in the time and effort to help Espie reach her full potential. She is smart and brave girl and deserves only the very best!
