Hi, I'm Laurie Barnum, Founder, and welcome to Save a Small Dog Rescue, Inc.

01/01/2014 Our furbabies desperately need appropriate housing while they wait for their forever homes. We need to raise $3,500 so we can finish two of the five buildings from our Dogs in Need Housing Project. We can begin utilizing these two buildings as soon as they are completed. Our goal is 12/01/14. Click the link below for more information. Please help us reach our goal, no donation is to small. Your donation is tax deductible. Donations can be made via our secure Paypal link or thru the Go Fund Me link below. As always thank you for your support!

 We are a non-profit 501 (c) 3 tax exempt , California, charitable organization. We are a public benefit corporation. With the help of myself and others, we rescue small breed dogs from high kill shelters, owner turn-ins, and displaced dogs. We adopt them from our rescue facility in Phelan and partner with PETCO on the weekends.  We are devoted to providing lots of love, nurturing, socialization ( which is a big factor), and patience with the dogs in our care. In return, we want to find people who will love them as much as we do. We are located in the High Desert, Phelan, next to Victorville and Hesperia. We house dogs less than twenty pounds. 

 LaCroix Tees will donate $5.00 for every tee-shirt ordered from their cartoon tee-shirts to our rescue. So order one or a couple to help support us! Click on the yellow tee-shirt for more information.

 Noelle New Owner

April 21, 2011  Upon the shelter's intake, they missed the microchip on this dog. She was held for the intake time and then put up for adoption. When she was finally available for adoption, I was notified from someone saying there was a Yorkshire Terrier at the Devore Animal Shelter. I went and pulled her. Like all dogs during our intake, we scanned her for a microchip. Because she was microchipped, I was able to locate her owners. Come to find out, she was stolen as a puppy five years prior from her yard in Temecula, CA. The Devore Animal Shelter picked her up in Bloomington CA as a stray. This is over 85 miles from where she was taken from. If Save a Small Dog Rescue had not found her microchip she would have been released to the public and would never had been reunited with her family.  Her owner, Nanci, was contacted by me and was in disbelief that she was found. Nanci says it's a miracle! Nanci and her family are ecstatic to have Noelle reunited with their family and their other companion Yorkie friend, Carolina. She says it's like being reunited with a child.
