Deja’s Adoptable Friends

All of these dogs have been rescued from high kill shelters on the night before their euthanasia by fosters who have been rehabilitating them with love and care. They are still in need of homes.

Dutchess

This gorgeous, generous, goofy girl is a fun-loving family dog looking for a new family! She spent the first year of her life playing with children and adults, and when she lost her home due to the family's unforeseen circumstances, she ended up in a high-kill shelter where she wowed staff and volunteers alike with her easy-going charm and happy-go-lucky antics with people and dogs alike.

Nina

This exuberant 6 year old, 52 pound yellow lab mix is the sweetest ball of energy. Rescued from a high kill shelter, her foster says her favorite thing in the world is to run...and run..and run, adding, "It's not uncommon for her to run around the huge yard for 15 minutes straight with a huge smiling face. When she decides she has had enough, she stops, drops, and crawls to you with an expression that can only be described as ecstatic.

Hunter

Very smart, lots of energy but loves attention and calms down when she gets it. She would be a great jogging buddy and perfect snuggle buddy. Playful and petite.

See More

Polo

Calling all families! Whether you are a nuclear one or an extended one, Polo is ready to be your most beloved new member. This yellow lab mix was rescued from a high kill shelter because his family lost their home, but he has been so well loved and well trained.

Easter

Easter has been so beloved since she was rescued from a high kill shelter that the volunteers who got to know her there still ask for updates from her foster! And what a delight it is to give those updates for this kind, sweet 2 year-old girl, who is described by more than one person as "soulful."

Pomme

Our goofy 1 year-old boy is famous in his foster home for his smile, and he has so much to smile about: A best friend in another male dog, with whom he loves to romp and play tug-of-war with sticks, the company of a couple of cats (he loves cats!), and a new found freedom after being rescued from a high kill shelter.

Treasure

Here's how extraordinary this 6 year-old family dog is: One of her caretakers in the high kill shelter where she was surrendered tried to adopt her but ultimately wasn't able to because of housing issues. Needless to say, these kennel officers see dogs day in and day out, so to be so moved by a resident as to try to adopt her means a dog is spectacular.

Honey Bear

Honey Bear is ready to play! This dear, gentle dog is in a foster home waiting for a family who will romp with him--he loves small children, maturer folks, and all ages in between. He is equally lovely with other dogs.

JD

He likes cats!!!!! He has lived with small children! He gets along happily with other dogs! We all know it's difficult to check off these boxes off when adopting a rescue dog, so may we introduce you to the check-all-the-boxes-off wonder that is JD, a gorgeous, 1 year old Lab/Pit mix who is just waiting for a cat, dog, kid-filled home to call his own!

Frank Sinatra

Well sure, Frank Sinatra has dazzling blue eyes. But what's beauty without charm? Frank's long on that, as well, rest assured. At the high kill shelter from which he was rescued, he had volunteers and workers falling over each other to snuggle.

Miss Sadie

Say goodbye to your privacy—there will be a line outside your door of neighbors coming to snuggle and play with Miss Sadie once you bring this blissful girl home! At one and a half years only and an itty bitty 34 pounds, Miss Sadie is as perfect as they come.

Jax

Jax is a hunk of love. One of the most affectionate boys we have ever met, this three-year-old, 69-pound boy was surrendered to a high kill shelter when his owner died. He had lived his life with children so happily that the friend of the deceased who surrendered him asked that he be placed, ideally, in another home with kids.

See More

Franklin

This one year old love muffin is summed up perfectly by his temporary caretaker, who says with a giant, affectionate smile on her face, "He is beautiful and busy!" Once upon a recent time, the 39 pound sweetheart was on the euthanasia list at a high-kill shelter after being found as a stray. Immediately, he won the hearts of volunteers with his hilarious antics.

See More

Babar

Babar began charming us the moment we had the privilege of meeting him at a high kill shelter, where even there he was filled with joy. How could we not rescue him from there and make sure he stayed safe until he could meet...you!

See More

Malibu

There's no one who doesn't love Malibu, and when it comes to love, this wonderful, warm boy is indiscriminate: He adores people, cats, and dogs. Recently rescued from a high kill shelter, the 2 year old is thriving in his foster home, where he has learned his basic commands in record time and impressed everyone with his perfect energy level--high enough to be filled with joy on a walk (he's great on a leash)

See More

Sandrine

Everyone--whether you are a person, a cat, or a dog- should have a playmate, and everyone's mate should be as playful as adorable Sandrine!

See More

Tootsie

Sweet little Tootsie is such an endearing girl she stole our hearts when she arrived in a high-kill shelter, still lactating from having given birth to puppies before being put out on the street. Like so many of these dogs we love, she is the personification of forgiveness:

Fergie

Three year-old Fergie arrived at a high-kill shelter with six other dogs, but it is with people that she shines: Immediately she won the hearts of the volunteers with her always wagging tail, greeting all who passed her way with enthusiasm and love.

See More

Riley

Being able to share the life of Riley is one of the greatest pleasures, and it pains us that we are only temporary caregivers of this extraordinary dog...but how thrilled we are for the family lucky enough to adopt him! This 1 year-old, who was rescued from a high kill shelter, is no less than a genius.

See More

Freddy

This 1-year old has so many fans, and for good reason! Among the wonderful qualities of this shepherd mix, as noted by the foster who rescued him from a high kill shelter after falling in love with him: Loyalty, being a good listener, compliance, his love of playing ball, the sweet way in which he follows the people he loves

See More

Sparta

Here's how amazing Sparta is: This Shepherd/Husky mix, who is about a year old, arrived a high-kill shelter, put on the euthanasia list for space, was rescued by her angel foster, and is now such an incredible star that she is making friends with all the dog experts who are meeting her.

Curious George

Our stunning, delicious one-year old was found in an abandoned apartment, living happily alongside another dog (or as happily as one might live in an abandoned apartment). Still, it hasn't taken any of the joie de vivre out of this GORGEOUS boy!

See More

Maasai

Maasai adores cats, loves other dogs, and thrives around people. And yet this five-year-old, beloved pointer/terrier mix has known such sadness in her short life. Only recently, she was put on the euthanasia list at a high-kill shelter. She had an old, shattered femur that had never been tended to, a newly-broken front leg, and bruises on her head. She was emaciated. And yet, her beautiful, kind, tender soul managed to show through.

See More

Zoey

How is it possible that only several months ago, the exuberant, beautiful Zoey was leaning against the legs of volunteers at the high-kill shelter where she found herself abandoned by her owner, too weak to stand on her own? Utterly disoriented that after her three-year-old life in the comfort of a home, she was suddenly on her own, facing certain death?

See More

Andy

Children are passionately attached to their beloved stuffed animals, which they infuse with such a perfect fantasy life that more-knowing grownups smile sweetly and keep their jaded thoughts to themselves. What could be as good in the real world as that beloved stuffed animal and its fantasy personality? May we introduce you to Andy.
