Saving Cory

Cory Day 1


Cory was saved from Stockton Animal Shelter by West Coast Boxer Rescue. He was emaciated with terrible mange, initially unable to stand, but he has made huge progress and is now a happy, much stronger boy. Cory again faces a huge hurdle. He has a lesion in his heart, and it needs to be either treated or removed or he will die. Please watch his video and see his will to live. Please help us help Cory. Donations for Cory can be made here: Thank you so much for your support.

Please watch Cory’s video

This is Cory currently. We still need to resolve his heart issue, mange, etc. but he is a happy boy.

Cory loves to play with his stuffed toy.

Featured Dog: Pluto Needs a Forever Home

Pluto was rescued from a bad situation – his original owners had him tied to a chicken coop and was feeding him chicken feed, until a kind couple took him in and took care of him until we rescued him. Pluto is a big boy, weighing in around 80+ lbs. He has been around kids, loves people and takes treats gently. With proper introduction, he gets along with other dogs. He has been working with a trainer and knows his commands. He is a big boy, so he is best with strong people.  He has been waiting for his forever home for a long time and would love to join a loving family.  Wont you open up your heart and home for Pluto?

If you are interested in Pluto, please read about our adoption process and fill out the application. Once the application is received our volunteer will contact you: Thank you.


Featured Dog: Dodger Needs a Forever Home


Dodger is a handsome boy, about 1-2 years old.  He was rescued from Downey Animal Shelter.  Dodger is a smaller guy, only about 50 lbs.  Dodger is a lover, but he can be dog selective from time to time, and will do best in a home with strong leaders.  He has been in training with our trainer and knows many commands.

Dodger has been waiting a long time for a home and can really use a forever home now.  Won’t you open up your heart and soul to welcome Dodger into your home?

Blanca Needs A Home

Blanca is a beautiful white Boxer who is EXCELLENT with kids.  She is a love and a wiggle butt, only about 2 years old.  The only issue Blanca has is that she is somewhat dog selective.  She would be great in a home with no other dogs or submissive male.  Blanca is looking for a foster home or forever home.  Won’t you open up your heart and home for Blanca?  More pictures of Blanca can be seen here:


Special Need Dog: Suzie-Q

Suzie-Q is deaf, but she doesn’t know she is lacking in any way.  She is a typical happy go lucky sweet girl.  She is great with other dogs, people, etc.  She is being fostered in Redding, CA, potty trained and know commands.  She is looking for her furever home.  Her ideal home would be a home with another dog and with no small children (because deaf dogs can get startled when they don’t see little kids coming).  Please open up your home and your heart for this wonderful girl.

Featured Dog: Jett

Jett was rescued from Moreno Valley Animal Shelter. He was listed as being 2 years old, but this boxer boy is only about 1 year old. He is on the small side for a male boxer @ 42 lbs but still has some growing and filling out to do. He will be about 50 lbs full size.  Jett is still a typical puppy and is full of energy. He is a very sweet boy who just wants to play all day. He definitely needs some TLC and training. He wants to please and will learn quickly with positive reinforcement. He is good with other dogs people but needs to learn manners including not jumping. Jett is not good with cats.  Because of his energy level, he would need a home with no small children.

Jett has been waiting a long time for a home and can really use a foster home or forever home now. Can you have it in your heart to open up your home and take him in?
