About Us Print

About UsPacific Coast Dog Rescue is a non-profit 501c(3) charity organization founded in 1998. We are dedicated rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing dogs in need.

Our licensed kennel facility is located in Burbank. and is always at capacity due to the high number of unwanted dogs and the limited number of great homes.

The dogs at Pacific Coast Dog Rescue have many stories to tell. They were abandoned on the streets, dumped at the local government shelters, tied up in backyards and left to die, given to us by Animal Control as former cruelty case evidence dogs, the list goes on. Even with proper socialization and training at our facility, it sometimes, takes the dogs a long time to "wake up" and enjoy life again.

Our staff has dedicated their love, time and efforts to create the best environment possible for each dog, so that the dogs are ready for you, to give them a loving, permanent home.

We are one of the few rescue organizations, who have an experienced dog trainer on site, our founder David Roe. Please visit our boarding training website at www.bluedogranchtraining.com or our boarding website at www.blue-dog-ranch.com 

Despite increased spay/neuter efforts through government and private programs, dog and cat overpopulation causes 6 - 8 million companion animals to be killed in government shelters EVERY YEAR in the United States. Of this figure, more than 25% are purebred animals.

So far, we have saved over 2000 dogs but we need your support.

It often takes months and even years to place a dog into an appropriate home, which means, that we incur high costs for the care of the dogs.

Even if you are not in the position to adopt a dog right now, you can help us in many ways: You can make a monetary tax-deductible donation to help us with our extremely high vet bills and the basic care such as food, living quarters and bedding for our dogs. You are welcome to drop off blankets, toys and treats. Please look on our website under "Ways To Help" for more options to be of assistance.

Pacific Coast dog Rescue strives to ensure, the most careful and appropriate placement for our dogs into loving homes. The adoption donation for all of our dogs is $300. All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. Many have received professional training before placement.

WE DO NOT ADOPT OUTSIDE OF THE GREATER LOS ANGELES / ORANGE COUNTY AREA.

Through a careful screening process, we make the best possible choice for our dogs to place them with compassionate individuals and families. We often take a bit longer than other rescues organization to place our dogs but we also have very few returns. We do, however always take our dogs back (even years later), if the adopter can't keep the dog.

Pacific Coast Dog Rescue offers a life-long commitment to our dogs and adopters and we are always there to answer any questions and offer training advice/help.
