Notes: This dog will NOT be at our adoption events. Please email to arrange a convenient time to meet Annie. No unfenced pool. Annie was born in approximately 2013. She is a very sweet, affectionate dog who gets along with all other dogs. She is mostly potty trained with the occasional accident. Annie is currently about 14.5 pounds. Annie has a left Atrium leaky valve and an enlarged heart, which has been managed well with medication. She will need to remain on this medication for the rest of her life and have regular follow-up visits with a cardiologist to monitor her progress. Annie was rescued from the shelter. Her owner had moved and left her with friends who did not want her so they passed her along to someone else, who also did not want her. They left her outside, so they did not have to deal with her. Annie was good at escaping and would often be found wandering the neighborhood. She was finally picked up by Animal Control. Owners were contacted and relinquished Annie to the shelter.

One by one, they pass by my cage
Too old, too worn, too broken, they say
Way past his time, he can’t run and play
They shake their heads and go on their way
A little old man, arthritic and sore
It seems that I am wanted no more
I once had a home, I once had a bed
A place that was warm, and where I was fed
Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn’t belong
I got in their way, my attitude wrong
Now I sit in this kennel, where day after day
The younger ones are chosen and taken away
When I had come to the end of my rope
You saw my face and again I knew hope
You saw past the grey, the legs wobbly with age
And felt I deserved life beyond this cage
You took me home, gave me food and a bed
You gently stroked my poor tired head
We snuggle and play, you talk to me low
You love me so dearly, and make sure I know
Although I have lived most of my life with another
You outshine them with a love so much stronger
I promise to return all the love I can give
To you my dear friend, as long as I live
I may be with you for a week, or for years
We will share many smiles, and a few tears
When the time comes, that God deems I must leave
I know you will cry and your heart it will grieve
When I arrive at the Bridge all brand new
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you
And I will brag to all who will hear
Of the person who made my last days so dear.

Our mission is to make a difference in the pet overpopulation problem by rescuing and re-homing abandoned animals in the Simi Valley Community as well as the greater Ventura and Los Angeles County areas. In working with local animal shelters, veterinarians, and other rescue groups, we locate animals most in need of care. While in our foster care, we ensure animals are properly fed and exercised, spay/neutered, microchipped and have high quality medical attention.
