The Brittany Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, care and placement of homeless dogs.

The dogs are shown at our weekly adoption program at our sanctuary in Agua Dulce. Please check our schedule for adoption events. While in our care, the dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and given a thorough check-up along with any necessary medical attention. Our dogs are also microchipped.  If dogs are not adopted, they will live at the sanctuary for their entire life.  We run a no-kill facility.

We rescue all dogs, regardless of breed, and we often focus our efforts on the harder-to-place dogs such as seniors, disabled or abused dogs, and "media condemned" breeds such as Pit Bulls, Chow Chows, & Dobies. It's relatively easy to find a home for a cute little terrier, but the gratification for us comes from placing the 6-year-old Pit Bull with one eye, the stray mutt who has never had a home before, or the 12-year-old Doberman with severe separation anxiety (who is now living in a wonderful home of his own). Of course, we also have the adorable, easy, well-behaved angels who are still searching for their forever homes too.

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month!

Senior pets rule, and nobody knows that better than the people who have adopted them!  The Brittany Foundation places many senior dogs each year, and the "mature" dogs at the sanctuary hold a special place in our hearts.  If you've never considered adopting a senior, consider these reasons that seniors make great pets:

  1. When seniors are adopted, many seem to understand they've been rescued, and are all the more thankful for it.
  2. A senior pet's personality has already developed, so you'll know if it's a good fit for you and your family.
  3. Some senior pets already know basic commands.
  4. A senior pet won't grow any larger, so no surprises there!
  5. Senior pets make great napping buddies, and are often content just to relax with you... unlike some younger dogs, who may get bored and get into mischief.
  6. Senior pets are some of the hardest to find homes for, so when you adopt a senior pet, you are truly saving a life.

We are Volunteers

volunteers

The Brittany Foundation is an all-volunteer organization. Our devoted staff handles the care, feeding, event coordination, public awareness campaigns and many other needs for our busy facility. Brittany Foundation volunteers know each dog personally, and they know how to assist you in finding the right dog for your needs, home and lifestyle.

Without the devotion to animals that the Brittany Foundation volunteers bring to our organization, we could not survive to help these dogs find homes.

If you are interested in volunteering, check out the "How to Help" section of our website. Even if you can't give a dog a home, you can make a difference in an animal's life. The Brittany Foundation is always seeking fellow dog lovers to assist our humane mission.

 
Even if you can't adopt, our dogs could still use your support. It's easy! Just click on the PayPal button below. Thank you.

We need labor for construction, landscape maintenance, providing socialization and care for the dogs in their kennels, staffing events and administrative tasks. We are a working ranch that always has projects which require help, for example with brush clearance during fire season.
