Welcome to Mutts
& Moms is a non-profit organization that rescues dogs from Los
Angeles and Kern County shelters. This rescue
was started by animal lovers and volunteers with local animal shelters,
who saw all the beautiful animals that are euthanized daily and
wanted to do something! Mutts & Moms rescues mixed breed dogs
(mutts) and Moms with the occasional litter, taking them out of
the shelters and into foster
homes and boarding kennels, where they are groomed, cared for,
and then adopted into loving homes.
- Sundays 11am-3pm in Pasadena, California. To request
a specific dog be there and for location, please email
Applications submitted that day will be reviewed during the week.
You may also request to meet one of our dogs by appointment, once
you have followed the steps in How
To Adopt and your application has been approved. (Adopters must live within 25 miles of Pasadena, CA.)

a tragedy when a Mom dog with a litter is euthanized because a shelter
can not keep the family until the puppies are weaned. The other
sad scenario is when a Mom's litter is adopted and the Mom gets
left behind to be euthanized. Adopters almost never step forward
and take the Mom since she is still lactating and her sacks of milk
are unattractive to them. Mutts & Moms rescues the Mom, waits
a few weeks for her milk to dry up, spays her and then she is good
as new. It has always been an outrage to Mutts & Moms that a
nice dog could go through pregnancy, giving birth, caring for her
puppies and then be killed. This is why Mutts & Moms was formed.
