Foster Home Program
This program is designed to provide an alternative to the unwanted surrender of beloved pets of our deploying military service members. We do this by recruiting and qualifying volunteer foster homes who are willing to open their homes to provide a loving and safe environment for these pets until they can be reunited upon their owners' return. Beyond preparing for veterinary care and basic food/supply needs, this service is provided at "no cost" to the military service member.
When a foster home needed request is made, we work with the military service member to match their pet(s) with an appropriate foster home. We facilitate the foster home placement using our Foster Home Agreement - a written agreement that outlines the terms of the relationship and protects the interests of all parties involved.

"Most of us can cope with the financial commitment involved in the
day to day care of our pets. However, how many of us come out in a
cold sweat when our pet is ill or injured and we know we have to take
it to the vet? Most of us are fortunate enough to be able to afford it but,some of us who love our animals dearly cannot. Unfortunately
we do not have a PDSA or a RSPCA Centre within our area, but there
are a few charities who may be able to help."

Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue Group, Inc. is 501c3 animal rescue group dedicated to rescuing labrador retrievers and labrador mixed breed dogs in Southern, Central and Northern California and placing them in loving homes.
Founded in 2007, the all-volunteer group is comprised of experienced men and woman who work passionately to save dogs from local shelters. Our volunteers are dedicated to changing the fate of labrador retrievers.
Our mission is to help as many needy animals as we can with the limited resources we have. We focus mainly on the sick, injured, disabled, and what some people might consider to be "unadoptable" animals, who are at most risk of being euthanized (killed) at our local animal shelters. We are an all-breed rescue, but have a soft spot in our hearts for the "bully breed" dogs, who are also known as American Pit Bull Terriers and American Staffordshire Terriers. These two breeds are very misunderstood and over the years, have been given a bad reputation due to false information given by the media. "Pit Bulls" and "Staffies" make wonderful family pets, and are very smart and loyal.
Giving dogs a new start at a happy life!
Open Arms Rescue deals predominantly with smaller breed dogs. We rescue dogs from shelters across Southern California and all the way into the Mexico -Tijuana Pererra (Dog Pound). We are based in Imperial Beach, CA but we have volunteers who foster dogs for us all across the county. We also take in injured dogs that require surgeries to become healthy and adoptable. As when a shelter receives an injured dog they cannot always have a surgery done to it due to their limited resources
. Foundation works with shelters, rescue organizations and animal welfare organizations across the country to ensure that no adoptable pet is euthanized for lack of a good home.
Did you know that approximately 4 million adoptable dogs & cats are killed each year due mainly to overpopulation? Did you know that 25-30% of dogs for adoption in animal shelters are purebred? The other 70-75%, of course, are lovable, wonderful mixed-breed pets, just waiting for a chance to be your perfect new friend.
Our organization has been in existence for over 18 years and is recognized as one of the most respected, organized, and active groups in Southern California. Each year we rescue more than 100 Pugs.
