Nancy is a sweet and shy girl who survived horrific conditions in a large hoarding case in Tehachapi, Ca. She and 160 other dog’s were seized from a single family home. The dogs, although well fed, were living in filth and disease with little socialization. Several of the dog’s were euthanized due to injuries and major health issues. Nancy was one of the lucky dogs to be pulled into Rescue.
Like lo-riders? This funny little guy is Smith. He’s all business up front and a party in the back. He's the perfect blend of pommie floofiness with the shortest little legs you’ve ever seen. Smith was rescued from Shafter Animal Control where he’d been surrendered as an owner turn in. We have no idea why he was surrendered because he’s pretty awesome!
Raul is a peppy, happy-go-lucky chihuahua mix that is about 3 years old who came to us from a shelter in Upland. He has all the love and affection of a small dog, but none of the barking or anxiety. Raul is very curious and confident and is willing to try new things. He seems to match the energy of other people and animals in his environment, but is most happy when he is physically touching his humans or other dogs or has his people in sight.
Who needs fur when you’re this adorable! Naked Nicky has a condition called alopecia. Some colors of chihuahuas are prone to hair loss and Nicky falls into this category. But don’t let his lack of fur get you down. This little guy is the happiest little lap warmer ever. He has no idea he’s naked and the condition isn’t complicated to care for. Just think of all the cute sweaters you can buy.

Fia was pulled from Kern County Animal Services recently with extremely long nails and very infected teeth. After two weeks of antibiotics her blood work showed it was safe to go under anesthesia and a dental and spay were performed. She is now a completely different dog! She’s so happy, playful, energetic and so so sweet. She was believed to be around 15 years old but since the infection has cleared up and bad teeth are gone, based on behavior, we are thinking she’s more like 10 years old.
Fia is house trained, crate trained and walks fabulous on a leash. She does well around children as long as they understand her boundaries. She runs alongside her foster(dog) siblings and naps in the sun. Then in the evenings relaxes on the couch while her foster family watches t.v. She’s such a wonderful girl and the family that adopts her is very lucky to have her. If you would like to adopt this spunky senior girl, apply to adopt her today!

King came to us from Bakersfield Veterinary Hospital. He was brought in by a kind couple that saved him after he was hit by a car and left to die. We worked really hard to save his leg, but determined it was best to amputate it in order to save his life. King has not skipped a beat. He plays with his foster’s pack, knows how to use a dog door, loves all the snuggles and scratches he can get. King is even learning to share his food (resentfully). What he loves most is riding shotgun with his human!!!!!
King would do best in a home with no other animals. He enjoys kids, but prefers to spend his days lounging with his human, sitting in the grass watching his human pick up his messes, and following his human from room to room. He just wants to be where you are. He is a larger dog – approximately 65 pounds.
King has many years ahead of him and is low energy as long as there is not a cat in view. His foster believes the best home for King would be with a veteran so they can heal together, but any low energy home would make this boy happy.

Boomer has a regal look all his own (think Egyptian sphinx). He was rescued from Shafter animal control after someone took scissors to his ears. This boy is active and would do best in an active home that will keep him busy and stimulated. Need a jogging/hiking partner? This guy would be perfect!
