Lola found her way to the shelter and sadly her owner did not come looking for her. Rescue was her only way out of the shelter and thankfully we were able to find just that. This poor girl was in need of emergency surgery as she was diagnosed with Pyometra shortly after being with rescue. We were able to fund the medical attention she desperately needed. Wishing her a long and happy life.
Gatsby was having a hard time at the shelter. It really can be hard on them when they are taken away from everything they know. He gets a little excited when petted one too many times. In need of rescue, we were happy to fund his bail and arrange his travels.
Hunter was in need of rescue and thankfully we were able to fund his exiting! He now
has found a wonderful family and living a dog's life!
Axel, a young male shepherd, was deemed rescue only due to some nipping behavior reported
from his owner. No worries as rescue was more then happy to welcome our little man into
their family! Now Axel has a long life ahead of him. Wishing him a pawtastic life!
Sadie, a beautiful young female husky, was deemed rescue only.
Thankfully a wonderful rescue was found out of state. All this gal
needed was a flight. We were honored to assist her. Sadie found
her forever home just two days after arriving. Happy Life!!
Jackson was turn into shelter due to the expense of lifetime meds due to having epilepsy. Being in a shelter and needing meds 3 times a day was not ideal. He needed a home or rescue rather quickly. Thankfully a rescue was found.
The volunteers at the Agoura Shelter have such huge hearts and with their donations, Jackson's medication will be covered for 16 months. We are all so thankful and happy to know that Jackson is in wonderful hands and hope he finds his forever home soon.
Sugar found her way to the shelter after getting into a bit of trouble at home. Being made rescue only, we were fortunate to find a wonderful rescue that would give her a second chance. On June 5th, 2014 we had the pleasure of personally driving her to her foster family.
Toby (left), Shilo (right) and Dylan (below) have shared an incredible journey. Their owner passed away and with no one to care for them, these three brothers began to wander the Chatsworth mountains. Animal Control set a trap to capture the boys but only Dylan was caught and brought to the Agoura shelter. Jennifer, a wonderful lady, befriended the boys and would feed them each day and after several months of this routine, she was able to contain the two in her yard and then get them to the shelter. She became their angel and with the help of her generous donations, FOHASoCal was able to get the brothers to the private vet where they were checked from head to tail. It was heartbreaking when the vet found and removed a bullet from Toby's thigh and a pellet from Shilo's leg. Back at the shelter, it took many months for the volunteers to rehab these two brothers and work on finding them a home where these two very bonded souls could be adopted together. Happily, their incredible journey ended with not only the two brothers being adopted together but actually being reunited with Dylan where all three are
living happily ever after.
living happily ever after.
Dylan and his brothers truly have an amazing story. Their owner passed away and the boys were left to roam the mountains in Chatsworth. The shelter set up a trap in hopes to catch the three but only Dylan wandered in. It took 2 months to gain his trust and one faithful volunteer to show him it was possible to love again. He stole the hearts of many and as the months went by it was time to send Dylan home to a family who would continue to show him love. With his brothers still roaming the mountains, Dylan's day had come and one of his favorite volunteers adopted him.
This handsome boy is Rocky. He did not do well on his temperament test, as he did not wish to share his food. A poor score makes a pup only available to rescue. Thankfully, a rescue was found in Texas and agreed to take our boy! FOHASoCal funded his pull fees and transportation. Rocky entered a dog training program while in Texas and his handler fell in love and adopted him! Truly a wonderful ending!
Jetta found her way to the Agoura Shelter and as time passed she began to react to people in uniforms. Although this lady was all talk, she needed a one way ticket out. That is when FOHASoCal stepped in and found a wonderful rescue in Texas. Covering pull fees and transportation to Texas, Jetta was adopted in her first week there! Move along little doggy!
Robin found her way to the shelter, as she was not too fond of little dogs and was in great need of rescue. Thankfully, we found a wonderful rescue in Texas and funded the cost of getting her safely to rescue. The best news of all is that Robin found her forever home!
Carl, a stray pit bull, was at the Agoura Animal Shelter for months and was not only in dire need to find his forever home but needed a lot of human companionship. Little did Carl know that in the process of finding his forever home, he would rescue someone too. A former Staff Sergeant of four Iraqi tours suffered from PTSD and was having a difficult time transitioning back to civilian life and trusting people. Through "Pets for Vets" FOHASoCal was so very proud to be a part of the funding that united these two lost souls that are now providing love, comfort and support for each other.
Bob and Irene were the odd couple that came into the shelter, A Pit bull, Irene, and Bob a chihuahua, and of course Bob ruled the roost! They were having an extremely hard time being adopted, and their time was running out. FOHASocal did not want to see this very bonded couple go to different homes, and we were able to find a transport that took them up to Orgeon where they would live in a foster home until they could be adopted together.
Brandy was turned into the Agoura Shelter with the onset of sudden paralysis from the neck down. FOHA paid her boarding costs of over $1,000 during her rehabilitation and physical therapy. We are happy to report that Brandy is once again walking and has found her forever home.
Trayas, a young Weimaraner, found himself in a bit of trouble and ended up at the Agoura Animal Shelter. Weimaraner Rescue was found, though they requested a special training program in order for them to take him. FOHA funded his training and assisted with transport. Trayas graduated and was placed in his forever home.
