We have been rescuing dogs since early 2019. Our main goal is finding loving homes for dogs that are abandoned and mistreated. 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. 

We typically fly dogs in from Mexico and Kauai 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


We will be requiring a $200 deposit to secure the trial of the pup you are interested in. This fee will need to be made in order to hold the pup. It can be applied to the adoption fee if you choose to adopt. If you decide not to adopt, the fee can be transferred to another pup (up to 3) within 90 days. If you change your mind or do not show up to get the dog, your deposit is forfeited. 

The remaining adoption balance must be paid within 3 days of the adoption decision.


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.
