Adoptable Pets

Updated 7/26/2015

If interested in adopting one of our available pets, you must complete our ADOPTION APPLICATION. All applications will be reviewed and considered in a timely manner. Pets are placed in the home deemed most suitable to meet that pets needs. All adoptable animals have been examined by a vet, spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, treated for internal parasites, treated for external fleas and are playing and getting socialized in a healthy, happy foster home environment. Our pets can also be viewed on:

   


Name: Orphaned babies
Breed: Unknown
Gender: Male/Female
Age Est: 5 weeks
Weight: 1 lbs
Coming soon! These 4 pups were discarded at the shelter without a mommy in sight. They were too young to eat on their own, so they went straight to one of our bottle feeders. Pups will be available for pre-adoption when they turn 6 weeks old.

Coming soon! These 6 pups ended up in the shelter after their mom was hit by a car and did not survive. Thankfully, one of our foster homes was available to take in these orphaned babies. Pups will be on the small side and they look like they have little Jack Russell or Rat Terrier markings. FRED, GOGO AND TADASHI ARE PENDING ADOPTION.

Name: Jack Russell Babies
Breed: Jack Russell mix
Gender: Male/Female
Age Est: 7 weeks
Weight: 2 lbs


Name: Yankee Doodle Dandy
Breed: ACD mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 4 months
Weight: 21 lbs
Yankee Doodle Dandy is a sensitive, sweet natured gal who is on the shy side. She loves to follow the dogs around in her foster home. She has a beautiful red and white coat and will do great in a home who understands the needs of a herding dog. She will be in the medium to large breed size when full grown. She is in a home with children and is all for snuggling up on someones lap when available!

Jax is a handsome terrier puppy that was discarded at the shelter without a mommy or daddy. This sweet boy absolutely loves the company of other dogs and has master the skill of being a lap warmer. His favorite pastime is following his foster mom around while she is in the garden. When he is not dong that, he is playing with his bounty of toys. Jaxx is going to make a great addition to a family looking for an adorable scruffy boy!

Name: Jax
Breed: Terrier mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 5 months
Weight: 8 lbs


Name: Chimp
Breed: Schnauzer/Scottie mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 8 months
Weight: 11 lbs
We found this scruffy boy at the shelter, where he sat patiently waiting to find his forever home, which never came. Perhaps Chimp was overlooked because his right nostril is slightly more narrow, which we think is a congenital birth defect. When we got Chimp, he snorted the entire way home! While under for his neuter, our vet was able to open up more space in his nose so that he can breath more comfortably. His prognosis is great and Chimp is a happy go lucky puppy who loves new adventures with new friends. He's great with children and walks great on leash. Chimp is also crate trained and is very smart, making him a great student for training. Chimp will make a great addition to just about any family type, and we think he is just perfect the way he is!

Name: Barbie
Breed: Spaniel mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 4 months
Weight: 10 lbs


Name: Rue
Breed: Maltipoo
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 9 lbs
This adorable gal was adopted out directly from the shelter, and then sadly returned when the family dog didn't accept having a new family member. We don't know the circumstance, but she is now a Lovebug and we will make sure we place her with the perfect family so she doesn't have to be bounced around again. Entering the shelter is stressful enough! Rue walks well on leash, gets along great with everyone she meets and is crate trained.

Meet Buster Brown, the most adorable guy in town! This sweet boy wants nothing more than to have his belly rubbed and share all his love with his special person. Buster gets along very well with other dogs, is potty trained in his foster home, and loves to romp around playing with his toys. The ideal home for Buster would be on the calm side with someone who is home more often than not and has another pooch to hang out with. Poor Buster was a matted mess when we first got him so he will also need someone who understands the importance of regular grooming.

Name: Buster Brown
Breed: Havanese mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 3 years
Weight: 13 lbs


Name: Coco
Breed: Puggle
Gender: Female
Age Est: 5 years
Weight: 27 lbs
Coco was surrendered to our rescue by her former owners who have fallen on hard times and can no longer care for her. Coco is a 5 year old, 27 lb Puggle that was kept outside in the families yard. When we got her, she was heavily flea infested and scratching at various hot spots. We have begun treatment with our vet and she will be spayed, microchipped, and get all her vaccines. Coco had a rough start in life, but that is all behind her now. Coco will learn what it's like to be an indoor dog and enjoy all the perks of being a lovebug!

Sea Treasure is sailing the 7 seas in search of her forever home. Sea Treasure loves to get out and sniff around the neighborhood on her daily walks and is a champion at snuggling on the couch. We think Sea Treasure would do best as an only dog and will do well with older kiddos too. She is both crate and potty trained in her foster home making for a smooth transition in her forever home. We promise if you open your heart and home to our little Treasure, she will be an amazing constant companion.

Name: Sea Treasure
Breed: Yorkie mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 1 year
Weight: 7 lbs


Name: Chili
Breed: Cocker Spaniel - Dachshund mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 3 years
Weight: 13 lbs
Chili was rescued by Lovebugs Rescue just hours before he was scheduled to be euthanized. He came into the shelter after being confiscated and was labeled "not social enough for public adoption". Turns out, Chili is quite the social butterfly and loves everyone he meets! He just didn't like being in the shelter kennel - who would? Chili appears to be house and crate trained. He walks great on leash, and plays well with other dogs big and small.

Quincy is an adorable long coat Chihuahua that was rescued from the shelter. Quincy was thought to have a heart murmur, but it turns out he has a Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA) which is a very correctable heart defect. We are in the process of raising funds for Quicny's surgery as is estimated to be around ,000. We are hoping to get him into surgery by early August. The surgery has a high success rate and Quincy will go on to live a normal dogs life! If your interested in donating towards Quincy's surgery, please see our donate tab. If you'd like to meet him for adoption, please complete our adoption application.

Name: Quincy
Breed: Chihuahua (long coat)
Gender: Male
Age Est: 7 years
Weight: 5 lbs


Name: Amelia
Breed: Chihuahua (long coat)
Gender: Female
Age Est: 5 years
Weight: 5 lbs
Amelia was rescued by Lovebugs Rescue just hours before she was scheduled to be euthanized. Amelia was discarded at the shelter with a large hernia. It turns out that a part of her uterus was inside the hernia. Amelia has had surgery to spay her and fix the hernia. She's now ready for her forever home! Amelia is as sweet as she is adorable! Amelia is the perfect little co-pilot to take on daily outings. She has beautiful brown eyes and the cutest fuzzy ears (which she refused to perk up for the camera).

Bunny was turned into the shelter after being found as a stray. We found her outside in one of the bunny hutches on a recent visit to the shelter. She's a tiny 2 year gal weighing in at 2 lbs 8 ounces, but can stand to gain a little weight. Bunny is very people and dog friendly. Ideally a home experienced in tiny breeds would be the best home for Bunny.

Name: Bunny
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 2 lbs 8 ounces


Name: Arwen
Breed: Maltese
Gender: Female
Age Est: 7 years
Weight: 8 lbs
Arwen was found wandering outside a good samaritans home in horrible condition. It appeared she had been used for breeding for several years and dumped when she was no longer valuable to her breeder. Arwen was a matted mess. So bad she had chewing gum matted in her coat to her jaw making it difficult for her to open her mouth to eat! Arwen also had a very large tumor about the size of someones fist attached her her lady parts. We can only imagine the years of discomfort this dog endured. Arwen is now a Lovebug, and those days are behind her. She underwent a surgical procedure with the Southern California Veterinary Specialty Hospital to have the tumor removed. She remained in the hospital until the swelling went down and she could go to the bathroom on her own. Her foster family has done a wonderful job caring for her, and as you can see, her coat is being maintained as it should have been from day one. Arwen will make a great addition to a family looking for a princess pooch!

MEDICAL: Tiffi lost her home through no fault of her own. Her former owner passed away and the family was not able to keep her. Thankfully, we had a foster spot open so Tiffi could become a Lovebug! Tiffi is a calm, sweet natured gal. She gets along with other dogs and people alike, even kiddos. Tiffi is crate and house trained, she walks well on leash and is a wonderful lap warmer. Tiffi was diagnosed with a heart defect called Patent Ductus Arteriosis (PDA), which has a high success rate of being corrected surgically. Tiffi also has pulmonary hypertension (high blood pressure in the lungs) making it very dangerous to undergo anesthesia. So the specialist does not recommend we put Tiffi under for PDA correction. Tiff also has a mammory tumor that we are not able to remove due to risk under anesthesia. Tiffi will require medication for the pulmonary hypertension for the rest of her life. We are looking for a calm household that is willing to love Tiffi the way she is, as she has a lot of love to give in return.

Name: Tiffi
Breed: Poodle
Gender: Female
Age Est: 5 1/2 years
Weight: 12 lbs


Name: Diana
Breed: Corgi mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 8 years
Weight: 40 lbs
Diana came to us out of the maternity ward from a high kill shelter. Diana didn't end up having pups on board, but she is carrying a little extra weight on her. She is now on a weight loss plan in her foster home and getting all the TLC she needs and deserves. There couldn't be a nicer dog than Diana. She gets along great with other dogs, big or small. And is in a home with small children. She is a loving gal who will make a great addition to just about any family!

Downton Abbey has been a wonderful place for Cora to raise her aristocratic clan but it is now time for them to leave the Yorkshire countryside and find estates of their own so Cora can rest and relax. This lovely lady is reserved and calm and wants nothing more than to be cuddled and pampered by the ones she loves. Cora has mastered the potty routine in her foster home and gets along well with other dogs. We have no doubt that this incredible beauty will make an amazing canine companion to someone very special.

Name: Cora
Breed: Papillion mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 15 lbs


Name: Bowser
Breed: Schnauzer-poodle mix
Gender: Male
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 24 lbs
Bowser was turned into the shelter as a stray and sadly, this boy suffered an injury a while back with his front right leg, that was never attended to medically. Our vet determined that it's not causing Bowser any pain and he is getting some use out of it, so they don't foresee it needing further medical attention at this point. Bowser is crate trained, gets along great with everyone he meets, people and other dogs. He is an adorable scruffy terrier mix, and we are so happy we can provide him with the best care possible while he waits for his forever family to fall in love with him!

Sara Lee was hanging behind a bakery in Santa Ana roaming as a stray, when one day she gave birth to 4 puppies. Animal Control was called but Sara took off when they arrived. Thankfully, another rescue was able to catch her and we were able to reunite the family with Lovebugs Rescue. Sara has wrapped up mommy duties, and now is ready to find a home to call her own. Having been on the run as a stray for so long, Sara is adapting well to domestic life. She walks great on leash, and gets along great with other dogs. She is a little tentative when meeting new people, but we expect that to subside over time as she gets more socialization in her foster home.

Name: Sara Lee
Breed: Jack Russell mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 8 lbs


Name: Ricky
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Male
Age Est: 6 years
Weight: 4 lbs
We found this little heart throb sitting in the animal shelter without an owner in sight. Ricky is a 6 year old, 4 pound, Chihuahua with personality plus! This little guy walks well on leash, is house trained and has easily adjusted to warming laps in his foster home. Ricky is tentative with meeting new people or with any sudden quick movements. He will require a calm household with an owner that is understanding that he's a sensitive little guy. Ricky is sure to reward by being a loyal companion.

Margo was rescued from the shelter where she was turned in as a stray. This dainty darling tops the charts at a whopping 3 lbs 7 ounces! Margo is the perfect co-pilot to take on daily outings. She is great with the other dogs in her foster home, walks good on leash and seems to be potty trained.

Name: Margo
Breed: Chihuahua
Gender: Female
Age Est: 5 years
Weight: 3 lbs 7 ounces


Name: Abbey Rose
Breed: Terrier mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 2 years
Weight: 12 lbs
Abbey Rose was discarded at a high kill shelter with babies on board. Thankfully, Lovebugs Rescue scooped her to safety so she could have her 6 puppies in foster care. Abbey Rose has been an amazing mommy and now it's finally time for her to find a family to call her own. Abbey Rose is scruffy and the most soulful brown eyes. She is going to make a great addition to a family looking for a sweet lady to add to their family!

Miss Lola Bubbles found herself checked into the local animal shelter by a family that could no longer care for her. Lola is extremely smart and has mastered most of her basic commands. Lola responds very easily to positive reinforcement training and would be an excellent candidate for advanced training. She gets bonds with and gets attached to her humans very quickly and would prefer not to share her families attention with other pets. Lola will do best in a family with a strong pack leader and an adult only home who is willing to continue working with a trainer. Lola and her foster mom have learned a great deal from one another with the help of a professional trainer. We promise that given the chance, Lola Bubbles will be an amazing companion to someone very special.

Breed: Lhasa Apso mix
Gender: Female
Age Est: 7 years

ADOPTION PENDING: Stripes was rescued by Lovebugs Rescue from the Riverside shelter. She is a gorgeous Shepherd mix and has a nice disposition. Stripes is out of the puppy stage, but she is an active gal that would enjoy going on outings with her family. Whether hiking, or on a nice walk, Stripes loves it all! She loves other dogs and is in a foster home with small children.

ADOPTION PENDING: Uncle Sam is a handsome red ACD mix that is super sweet and a little on the shy side. He loves the company of other dogs and is in a foster home with small children.
