Sponsor PAWS

We are a rescue that consistently maintains a 100% uncompromising NO KILL policy. Since we will never give up on any of our rescues resulting in many remaining with us forever, we need monthly donations to help cover ongoing expenses associated with properly caring for and housing a pup for his/her entire natural life. When you become a sponsor you are not only helping the animals in our care, but allowing us to help more dogs in need. You will also be given access to our "private updates" section -- which offers photos/videos of the sponsored pup! We have many more animals that need sponsoring, so please help us help more paws in need and sponsor an animal today!

Beni

Beni is terrified and most likely a feral pup. He may have never felt the touch of a human throughout his lonely, unsocialized past. Trapped, dumped and left to die at MCACC, his shelter eval read: "Came in a trap very fractious and unsocial. Needed to be snared by a field officer and taken back to the kennel via transport bucket." Yet, Beni allowed the gentle touch of his savior, Domenic, upon the very first encounter.

Birdie

Birdie is an exceptionally sweet, loving and devoted pup with the people he considers "family" only. He is a powerful boy and requires a very strong and confident leader. Due to his strength and aggressive nature around strangers and animals we feel his future safety would be at risk if placed with the average adopter. Therefore, Birdie is considered a sanctuary dog, is not adoptable and is in need of sponsorship.

Blue

Blue is an exceptionally sweet, loving and devoted pup who will protect his home and family. He is a powerful boy and requires a very strong and confident leader. Due to his strength and uncertain nature around strangers we feel his future safety would be at risk if placed with the average adopter. Blue is currently considered a sanctuary dog, but available to the right home. He is in need of sponsors.

Boomer

Boomer is a super sweet and gentle pup with people; however, he can be dangerous and highly reactive with some animals -- labeled by county 'S5 temperament-animal.' No other rescues, including the Doberman rescues, were interested in saving him from death. Like Birdie and so many others, Domenic was Boomer's only hope for LIFE. At the moment, Boomer is considered a sanctuary dog. Please consider becoming Boomer's sponsor.

Dexter

Dexter like many others responds amazingly to Domenic -- turning into a sweet and loving pup. However, Dexter reacted highly aggressive with everyone (except for Domenic) at the county shelter -- barking, growling, charging and trying to bite and was subsequently labeled 'S5 temperament-human' by county and placed on death row. At the moment, Dexter is classified as a sanctuary dog and needs sponsorship.

Rex

Rex is an exceptionally sweet, loving and devoted pup with the people he considers "family" only. He is a powerful boy and requires a very strong and confident leader. Due to his strength and aggressive nature around strangers and animals we feel his future safety would be at risk if placed with the average adopter. Therefore, Rex is considered a sanctuary dog, and is in need of an experienced handler or sponsorship.

Scooby

Scooby is an amazing pup, and is the perfect example of what can go wrong when placed in the wrong hands. Former bite dog and county assessed 'S5 animal-aggressive' should not define this exceptional pup who has shown absolutely zero aggression under proper handling. There are millions of pits needing a home and with his history his options become even further limited. Scooby is a sanctuary dog and in need of sponsorship.

Teeko

Teeko is an exceptionally sweet, loving and devoted pup with the people he considers "family" only. He is a powerful boy and requires a very strong and confident leader. Due to his strength and uncertain nature around strangers we feel his future safety would be at risk if placed with the average adopter. Therefore, Teeko is considered a sanctuary dog, is not adoptable and is in need of sponsors.
