Who We Are

We are a canine rescue, located in Tracy, California and work with shelters in our area. Although we specialize in the Rottweiler breed, we are not breed specific and also rescue a lot of mixed breed dogs. We do have a special affinity for black and tan dogs and keep our eyes open for Rottweilers in the shelters. We try to save dogs that are in danger of euthanization at the shelters in our area and foster them in home environments until we find a family for them. We housetrain them and teach them to live in a home setting. We offer socialization to our rescue dogs by walking them, taking them with us as often as possible, and work with them to get along with other foster dogs in our home. Before adopting a dog out to a new family, we do a home check to ensure that the rescue dog is a good match for the new adopters. If the new adoption does not work out in your home, we will welcome the dog back at any time. In this way, we hope that both you and the dog will be happy with the adoption. Check our adoption process for more details.

We also help dog owners, and people who have found a lost dog, try to find a new home for these pets. We assist them by listing the dog on our petfinder site as an owner assist listing. The owner or current caretaker of the pet continues to care for the pet and is the contact person for the pet, while the dog is listed on our webpage. Our adoption fees and policies for FCAR do not apply to these dogs. Their adoptions go strictly through their owners and caretakers and we try to help find them new families by providing exposure for them through our petfinder webpages.

We would like to sincerely thank all the people who made donations to our rescue to help us cover the cost of saving lives. Every dollar sure does make a big difference for us. Any donations to help cover the costs of fostering dogs are very welcome. Please send your donation to the following address:
