Rescuing Mutts Of All Kinds

Mutt Scouts is not a breed specific rescue. We’re dedicated to saving every dog we can, regardless of age, breed or medical/behavioral needs. We are committed to transparency with our potential adopters to ensure that once a dog is in our care, they will know nothing but love and safety for the rest of their lives.


What Makes a Mutt Scouts Mutt?

We stay true to our mission, focusing on rescuing local Mutts in need as well as Mutts of Mexico. In Southern California, we are dedicated to rescuing Mutts from high-kill shelters as well as those still on the streets. We also rescue Mutts in need from the streets of Baja California and Mexico, where there is endless suffering and neglect.  Some are strays, found and cared for by our amazing volunteers.  Others are surrendered to us by their former owners for various reasons.  

We don’t care where they’ve come from or where they’ve been, we only care about where they’re going and getting them there with love. We are vigilant in ensuring our Mutts find the perfect forever home and family. Before we introduce you to our Mutts, you must submit an application and complete a home check. The final step to welcoming your new family member is the adoption fee - interested in one of our Mutts? Submit an application today!

Foster a Mutt

Unsure of whether dog ownership is right for you? want to help but can’t make a long-term commitment? Consider fostering.

When you foster a Mutt, you rescue it from a shelter life sentence or from death row. We will work with you to find the right match that will set up you and your foster Mutt for success. When you fill out an application, give us the 411 to help us understand how we can make this dream a reality. Prefer a small dog? Do you need a dog that has already been socialized with other animals? Up for the challenge of rehabilitating an abused or neglected animal?

Let us know – with every foster home, we’re able to rescue a dog in a shelter or off the streets that is desperately waiting and in need of being saved. We provide all food, supplies, and vet care – you provide the love and care, and a safe home until we find their forever home. Ask us about fostering today and help make a difference in a Mutts life!
