Why do you bring in dogs from other areas when there’s so many dogs in shelters here?

Our mission is to help dogs in need. We value our international rescue partners and their efforts snd believe that we can find good homes for all kinds of dogs. Many families from abroad never considered adopting until they learned that they could help animals from their mother-countries. Others feel powerless to help dogs in international communities and after they adopt they become stronger advocates for international humane laws.

There’s no shortage of Southern California rescue organizations placing pets from our local shelters who would value your support if you don’t agree with our intake policies. DWB is one of the highest placement rescues in the county, with the majority of our rescue dogs coming from LA County shelters and we believe that we are doing the best that we can. In 2019 we re-homed over 700 dogs.
