Our Origin Story

Once upon time in April of 1994 a litter of beautiful Akitas were born. Heaven only knows why these spirits came to Earth to bless our founders Louis Vega and Caesar Muñoz.

A cute brown and white small rescue dog named Charlie sitting on his hind legs next to a white and silver short hair rescue cat, named Bebino. They're both sitting in the same fashion and looking over their shoulder smiling ate you with big puppy dog eyes and cute cat eyes.

Our Mission

Rescue Dogs, Cats, & Pets in Need of a Home Across Los Angeles, California

We rescue puppies, dogs, kittens, cats, turtles, and have even rescued birds. Our mission for saving animals in need of a loving home across Los Angeles, California, knows no bounds. Over the years we’ve provided homes for animals given up for adoption, or who were abandoned, and fostered them until we found a loving home, or we’ve kept them and loved them as our own. We have 2 facilities for rescuing animals where we provide a cozy home and great pet care for all our pet rescues.

Kitten rescues: Apollo, and Mikie, playing with their favorite fluffy toy. Both kittens are standing upright on their hind legs pawing at the toy in a game of kitten tug-of-war.

Meet the Animals

Take a moment to meet the animals your donations support, and meet the dogs that started it all: Usagi and Takara.
