Brief Bio: Meet Charlie! Charlie was rescued by a lovely family who found his as a stray on the side of the road. Charlie is a sweet boy that just wants to be loved. He’s like putty in my hands when I hug and cuddle him. Since we don’t know his background we wanted to treat him like we would want someone to treat our dog if they found her. Charlie has gotten a clean bill of health and is a happy boy. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning a dog and will continue to give this sweet boy all the love he deserves. Charlie is patiently waiting!

Zara – Adoptable

Brief Bio: Meet Zara! Zara is a sweet and gentle girl who was found on the roadside in a remote mountain area. On a pouring night, she sat alone by the road in the darkness without any light or street lamps around her. The rescuer originally thought of her as a suspicious wild animal but upon getting closer she realized something was wrong. The rescuer got out of her car and checked it out, that was when she came upon poor Zara. Zara was found seriously traumatized with blood running out of both eyes. In addition, Zara’s paw on her hind leg was also bleeding and missing. She was so helpless in the pouring rain with such serious wounds. Both eyes were gone along with her back leg, so she couldn’t see and didn’t know where to go. Seeing her misery made the rescuer shocked and heart-broken. The rescuer quickly wrapped Zara with a towel, brought her into the car, and raced to the animal hospital as fast as she could. On the way, this brave little girl didn’t make any sound, she knew she was saved at last and surprising leaned closely to the rescuer.

Zara is only ten months old. Diagnosed by the vet, she had just undergone brutal abuse. Both of her eyeballs were gouged out with a sharp tool, and her paw was chopped off cruel intent.  The vet performed urgent surgery on her eyes and leg. Her eyeballs were removed, and she wouldn’t be able to see the ruthless world. The rescuer couldn’t imagine who could do such harm to her, and thought after the brutal abuse, Zara should fear any human beings getting near her, but she is so gentle and forgiving. Zara likes to get close to everyone around her. She is friendly to adults as well as children. She also loves to eat food and fruits. She makes everyone around her feel her warmth, and makes all the people who witness her suffering so heart-broken. After the treatment, the healing from the wounds, spaying process, and all the blood tests, she is proven perfect healthy without any other diseases.

Zara is a simple-minded girl. Even though she lost her eyesight, she still can walk smoothly. Within a short period of time, she can identify correct direction and come and go easily with her smell and hearing. Even though she lost the paw of her right hind leg, she still walks at ease with her three other legs. We are so proud of her and admire her bravery. We are looking for a home that will continue to show Zara that is world is not a scary place and that there are lots of love to give. Even though she is no longer “perfect”, she is perfect and loving for anyone who meets her. Zara is patiently waiting!

Weight: 20-25lbs

Housebroken: Yes

Brief Bio: Meet Hunter! Hunter was found during heavy downpour under the freeway viaduct during the night. The heavy rain had been going on for awhile and by the time he was spotted by the passing-by rescuer he was scared in danger of getting hit by a car. At first, the rescuer saw a moving object in front of the car, but further scouting showed that it was a black cute boy, soaked and hungry. The place was very close to the freeway exit ramp, we can’t understand the motive of abandoning him at such a remote and dangerous spot. Poor Hunter was lucky he was spotted otherwise his outcome would have been a lot different. The rescuer wasted no time to dry him and give him some food. Hunter was very happy and sweet when he was approached. Hunter leaned closely against the rescuer, tail wagging and soon after, when the car door was open, Hunter happily jump into the car without hesitation.

Hunter is a passionate and friendly dog who makes friends easily with human and fellow dogs. Hunter has forgiven the human cruelty of being abandoned in the middle of no where. He enjoys being around people, playing with other dogs and loves to go on walks. We are looking for a home that understands the responsibilities of owning a dog and will continue to give this sweet boy all the love and attention he deserves! Hunter is patiently waiting!
