DOG BREED RESCUE GROUPS

Please note: If you know of a rescue group that should be listed here, please contact us and let us know. Similarly, some rescue groups are less than reputable. If you know of one that is run by an animal hoarder and/or abuser or has has had complaints against it, please let us know that, too, so we can remove their name. We want dogs to be adopted from caring people with the dog's welfare as their paramount interest.

If a dog breed has two names -- Australian Cattle Dog and Queensland Heeler -- it is listed twice, once under each name.

Also, if a breed has an official name but is also known as a more generic name -- Siberian Husky and Husky -- it is also listed twice, once under each name.

Finally, many Los Angeles dog rescue agencies also have pure bred dogs, so be sure to check those, too.

We wish you the very best in finding your new rescue or adopted dog!

Finally, many breed rescues also have mixed breed dogs of their own breed or other breeds, so be sure to check those, too.
