We have been rescuing dogs since early 2019. Our main goal is to help our out of state rescue partners who are having a harder time finding homes. With our second goal being a second alternative to surrendering your pet to the shelter.

What better way to showcase them than in a playful, happy, loving environment with other loving dogs in our community.

We have a 7 day trial with no strings attached. 

We typically fly dogs in from Mexico and recently just started branching out with other rescues in the states. We do sometimes take in local surrenders after an assessment is done.

Year 1: 182 Dogs Adopted

Year 2: 260 Dogs Adopted

Year 3: 400 Dogs Adopted

Year 4: 600 Dogs Adopted

Year 5; 800 Dogs Adopted

Our adoption donation is $600. All adoption donations are tax-deductible. 


Our Adoptable Pups

What dogs are in our program? Most of our dogs come to us with limited information from their rescuers. (although some come with lots). We get all sorts of breeds and ages. Majority of our dogs are dog friendly and are all up to date with vaccinations and microchipped.

Who are their rescuers? Well it depends. We pull from a few small shelters in Guadalajara that are filled with adoptable dogs that were either surrendered, abandoned, or found. We also have a team of volunteers down there working on their own pulling dogs from various hoarding situations, fostering puppies they have found in fields, etc. They get them vetted and then foster them until they are ready to fly north! 

What vaccines do they come with? All our dogs go through a permitting process in order to get through customs. Currently they are requiring rabies, DHLPP, and bordetella and a dewormer. We do not do any of their vetting here as they have already been vetted prior t flying.

For dogs arriving from another state, their medical varies. We will always be sure they are up to date on DHPP, Bordetella, and Rabies if old enough. We also deworm them upon arrival.
