Success Stories


Good boy, Percy!

Such a Sweet, Happy kid. Percy has come such a long way. This Handsome kid was living on the streets a couple months ago, and is now moving into his own home with his Kind New pops, Ron.

When Percy was first rescued from the streets he was uncertain of who he could Trust, which is completely understandable. Through much Affection and Conditioning Percy came to understand he was Safe & Wanted. Really Wanted.

Ron saw Theo's video, and went searching on our site and saw Percy's pic. He was instantly smitten, so Ron and his friend came by our recent Mobile Adoption to meet. Needless to say after looking at this HAPPY picture, an INSTANT bond was formed. 

Congrats and thank you Ron for choosing to adopt, and for the excellent decision you made. Thank you Theo, Eldad, Hope For Paws, & Annie Hart for the Powerful Viral Video that brought these two together. 

And Percy: Thank YOU for Trusting what we told you: 'Someone will Love you like we do. You Deserve it. You always did.'

Now Go Enjoy Life, Buddy.

The Tail of Little Iris

Abandoned and alone (after the dog she was with was killed) she survived on the streets of Compton for months. A wonderful woman from a senior community nearby contacted us after she had seen Iris digging through trash and sleeping in ditches for a long time.

Erin and her boyfriend, Oscar, started out by fostering Iris. And as they tell it - soon Iris left them no choice but to make her a permanent member of the family.

She is just too darn sweet and lovable for them to consider anything else.


The Tail of Lola

This sweet girl was with a large group of dogs that came from a hoarder. She had been severely neglected and lived in a horrendous environment her whole life. To add insult to injury, after all the other dogs had been rescued, poor little Lola was left behind. "Not as adoptable" they said. "Plain brown Chihuahua" they said.

We think not!

We drove right down to pick her up.
Lola could not be sweeter, could not be cuter and was adopted very soon after we got her.  

Congratulations Lola on your new amazing home and amazing new life.

The Tails of Foster Dogs

When you have a foster home that is made up of pretty much the coolest people on the planet. This wonderful couple were getting married. They thought their engagement photos needed some furry friends and invited a few of their former Mutt Scouts foster dogs to join them!! The result is so special our hearts are bursting.

Not only did they foster- from left Dolly, Sammy and Huck- but they were also responsible for finding all three dogs AMAZING homes.

Congratulations Grace & Nick. We cannot imagine a more compassionate more lovely two people spending their lives together.


The Tail of Sophie


When you are in rescue you think no story can be as heartbreaking as the last one. For Mutt Scouts that changed when we got the call from our fellow rescuers in Tijuana about Sophie. This gentle soul was first used as a breeding dog. Then when Sophie’s body was destroyed from breeding they turned her into a bait dog herself. How she got away we will never know. Or maybe they just threw her away. Her luck changed when she was found curled up on a filthy dirty blanket on the streets of Tijuana. It wasn’t long before the call came to Mutt Scouts to save this girl. 

Soon Sophie became a social media star when The Dodo did an article on her heartbreaking story. But it wasn't until the day that the Gekakis family fell in love with her that her life changed forever.  To go from the streets of Tijuana to the arms of this loving family is what rescue is all about!  Happy Trails and Tails Sophie! You are home!
