Mini Yellow Lab

Sweet Toby is a Mini Yellow Lab who needs a forever home! His parents lost their apartment and they've all been living in the car for the past few months. Finally, his parents found housing, but they will not take pets. Toby was going to be left out on the street. Fortunately, one of our volunteers heard Toby's story and stepped in to save him. Toby is about 2 yrs old, happy and healthy. He weighs only 25 lbs. Toby would make a great hiking or jogging buddy. We had Toby spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Can you give Toby the permanent home he deserves, or know someone who can? Please email contactus@dexterfoundation.com if you can help Toby and live in the Los Angeles area. We have a foster to adopt program too! We're only adopting out to the Southern California area. Adoption donation $300

Foster Homes Needed

So many dogs are finding their way into shelters. Sadly, due to overcrowding, many never make it out. We can only save as many dogs as we have available foster homes. Can you save a dog's life by giving it a warm, loving home for a few days or weeks? We pay all of the dog's expenses. Your kindness will be repaid with lots of love and affection! As a foster parent, you will NOT be required to bring the dog to weekly adoption events. We want fostering to be easy and rewarding! Every new foster home is a dog's life saved!

The Adoption Process

First and foremost, complete the application here.
We then schedule a quick and easy home check. We are only adopting out to the Southern California area. We save new dogs each week, so we often have dogs that we have yet to post online.
