Mission Statement

Giving dogs the lives they deserve!


We are an all volunteer, all breed dog rescue group based in San Diego. We incorporated in 2008 and opened a facility in 2011 which houses 100+ dogs while they await their forever homes. We save dogs from Southern CA shelters & Mexico when they are at risk of euthanasia and we take in dogs from Asia which have been saved from the dog meat trade in China, Korea & Thailand. We adopt out approximately 70 dogs/month.



We'll work with your schedule.


This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.
