and other homeless dogs.

We are a full-service rescue, with dogs coming to us from all over the Southern California area for foster care services. Retrievers and Friends of Southern California not only provides care for dogs while they are waiting for adoption, but we provide follow-up assistance for the life of the dog.

The Aggressive Canine

We see the same e-mail, and hear the same message on the answering machine, many times each month:

"My dog has bitten my son's friend (or daughter, or neighbor) and I can't keep him any more.  He just needs a home with out kids or out on a farm where I know he'll be happy."

So what options are available to families with dogs that snarl, growl and try to bite?  More info here

found a stray?

Many people contact rescue to ask them to take in a stray dog they have found, hoping to eliminate a trip to the animal shelter where the dog may be put to sleep if not reclaimed by the owner.  Click here for info on how to help a found dog.
