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

December 2021 - Our furbabies desperately need appropriate housing while they wait for their forever homes. We need to raise $5,000, so we can finish the remaining building for our Dogs in Need Housing Project. We can begin utilizing these two buildings as soon as they are completed. Our goal is 12/31/22  Please help us reach our goal, no donation is too small. Your gift is tax-deductible. Donations can be made via OUR secure Paypal link (to the left) or thru YOUR secure Paypal link at

 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.

 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 have 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.

See all the Dogs!
Rescue date 5/15/2017 My name is Hannah. I'm a purebred Chihuahua. I'm about three years old and weigh about twelve pounds. Once you get to know me, I have a really cute personality. My adoption fee is $275 which includes the spay, up to date vaccines, microchip and microchip registration. I will do best in a home with women only. We are located in the High Desert, Phelan, next to Victorville and Hesperia. 
Rescue date  6/15/17 SHELBY is a cute little PUREBRED Chihuahua who is about 4 years. old and weighs 9 lbs. She was one of several dogs who were rescued from the backyard of someone who was unable to provide them with proper care. She loves other dogs but is a bit on the unsure side when interacting with humans. She's a sweet girl who just needs to continue working on building her confidence. She is best suited for a quiet adult family in more about Shelby
