Natalie shares her life changing experience. Thanks to dot429 for creating this amazing video about MaeDay's inception.

MaeDay Rescue is a Los Angeles based, 501c3 non-profit organization committed to helping the homeless animal population, while generating awareness and education on the importance of spay/neutering. Our overhead is very low, so all donated money goes directly to helping animals.

Founder and President, Natalie Garcia, has a keen eye for finding those special animals that are just right for your life, so describe what you’re looking for and she will find it!






Opie is a one to two year old red Chihuahua mix who not only is handsome, but has a rocking personality. His last family adopted him from the shelter and then noticed he shed, so they threw him in the back yard and went and got another dog to replace him. He is now safe and loved in MaeDay! He loves giving kisses, is the perfect balance of calm and playful, likes other dogs, cats and all people. He is frequenting the dog park with his foster and loves his park pals!

Meet Herschel! He is a dignified gentleman who is around 6-8 years old. He seems to be a pure Spaniel and is perfection in every way! He is house trained, loves all dogs, is mellow, likes cats, great on leash, can sit, loves car rides and is just easy. He was tied to a MaeDay rescue foster's doorstep with a note that said "Can't keep." He was full of fleas, more than we've ever seen and was so very dirty. The poor guy must've been living in a backyard for awhile. He was clearly someone's dog at some point, because of how agreeable he is. Give this guy the home he deserves!

Sgt. Jefferson

Sgt. Jefferson who is also called Smokey Joe Lonesome, is a sweet sweet senior. He was found under a car not moving, covered in fleas, dirt and ticks. The person who found him thought he was dead until he slid him out from under the car and the Sgt. popped up. He has definitely had a hard life. He has no fur on his body, except for around his neck and on his head, giving him a lion look. The vet thinks he has no body fur due to years of sun exposure, fleas, malnutrition and no shelter. Now that he is an older gentleman we aren't sure his fur will fully grow back. He is also deaf, but his eyes are in good shape and his blood work is perfect! He does have a few masses on his body, but they seem to show no signs of cancer! Although he sounds like a mess, he is potty trained, has the kindest heart, loves to be pet, loves cats, loves dog beds that are too small for him and is fine with other dogs. He deserves to live his remaining years in a warm house surrounded with love!



Meet Ida!! This girl was in found running in traffic in Orange County, with no tags or microchip. The kind couple who found her did everything to try and track her owners, but were unsuccessful after a two-week search. They reached out to us and we gladly stepped in! She's around 1 year young, very sweet, potty trained, and is learning to sit. She loves other dogs and would like to be adopted to a home with another dog.

Arthur is an older gentleman who lived his whole life in a backyard tied to a tree. His humans would forget to feed him from time to time, so he started eating rocks to survive. This made him stop eating altogether because his stomach was blocked. So his humans decided they would him down because he wasn't eating. When MaeDay's team heard this, we swooped in and saved him. He is now healthy, fixed, and has all shots. He likes other dogs, he's great with cats, he looks like a seal and is quite a character.
