OCPoundHounds Small Breed Rescue is a boutique, licensed Small Breed Rescue Organization, that has been recognized as both a California and Federal 501(c)(3) charitable Non-Profit organization.
We are an all-Volunteer run organization with no paid Members. We have been rescuing dogs in Southern California since 2005.
OCPoundHounds focus is to rescue small, apartment-sized dogs, usually under 12 lbs, from local "High Kill" shelters in Southern California, mostly who are on the euthanasia lists for minor medical issues (kennel cough, urinary and/or respiratory tract infections, skin allergies, demodex mange), cruelty and/or neglect cases, or just because the shelter is over-crowded and has to make space for incoming dogs.
OCPoundhounds rescues dogs they feel have the best opportunity for being rehabilitated and re-homed with "Homes-For-Life" by dog-parents committed to giving an OCPoundhound a forever home, usually a 10 to 15 year commitment.
