THE RESCUE TRAlN is a unique, 501(c)(3) non- profit, no-kill organization dedicated to eliminating animal suffering and euthanasia through hands-on rescue work, education and awareness.
We are NUTS about this dog!
Cashew came into the North Central Animal shelter as a stray. The Rescue Train met him at a large mobile adoption event. These events are often stressful for shelter animals, but he was a ROCK STAR! We took one look at his adorableness and couldn't get him on The Rescue Train fast enough. Destination find him a loving home!
Cashew is one of the sweetest dogs we have ever met. He's so full of love and joy! At 8 months of age he’s still a puppy and all wants to do is play and get lots of belly rubs! There is something funny and unique about him starting with his cute under bite. He’s a poodle/cocker spaniel mix that is great with people and other dogs. Because he is young he would do best in a home where he could get a lot of stimulation. He’s very social and would love a home were people are around more often than not.
Like all dogs he would benefit from some obedience training to become a good canine citizen. He is focused and loves rewards and praise. He doesn’t have a mean bone in his body but because he needs attention and puppy training at this age if he were to live with children we prefer they be over the age of 8. Cashew is neutered, vaccinated and micro chipped and in good health.
Cashew looks at you with such love in his eyes. WARNING: He will steal your heart!
Marti was turned into the North Central Animal shelter as a stray with a possible owner. Her family never came to pick her up, but The Rescue Train did. We know a special dog when we see one! Next stop LOVING HOME FOR MARTI… CHOO CHOO!
We’ve been rescuing dogs and finding them loving homes for a decade and Marti is one of the most interesting mix of breeds we’ve seen. She’s a three year old Italian Greyhound/ Cavalier King Charles Spaniel mix – a sweet spaniel face with supermodel long legs!
When she came into her foster home from the shelter you could tell she was very frightened by her time out on the street but it didn’t take her long to feel safe and relax. Marti is a LOVE BUG! There is no place she rather be than your lap. For that reason we’d like to find her a home where people are around more often than not. She could be an only dog or do fine in a home with a male dog her size. She does fine with cats.
Like all dogs Marti would thrive with a little training. She's very smart and wants to know what is expected of her. Learning to communicate to a dog is key. That's why training can be such a fun and bonding experience. She is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.
She was very thin from her time on the street but we’ve been feeding her healthy food and getting her back to a healthy weight. She's full of life, energy and KISSES! The only thing missing to give Marti’s story a happy ending is you!
Rescue Train volunteers were alerted by a staff member at the Griffith Park visitor’s center that a cat had been abandoned. Since coyotes frequent that area the kitty didn’t stand much of a chance unless quickly rescued. When our volunteers arrived the cat saw them, she ran up to them and started rubbing against their legs. An easy rescue, no need to trap, she just jumped into welcoming arms.
We decided to name her Parker since she survived that scary experience. She was given a clean bill of health by our vet and then moved into a foster home. Parker is a low maintenance kitty that is very people oriented. She loves to be petted and brushed and rolls around in joy with her motor going. She’s a sweet and gentle soul, longing for a home to call her own. Her favorite activity is lounging gracefully in her comfy bed.
She currently is living with another female cat in her foster home. Although she and the other cat don't interact. They just sort of peacefully coexist. We think Parker would be absolutely fine as an only cat. She is about 4 years old and petite. She currently weighs about 7 lbs but still needs to put on a little weight.
Parker is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, tested negative for FIV/LUK and litter box trained.
Did we mention she's got some LONG whiskers? She’s ready to PURR her way into your heart and home!
