There's no place like a forever home

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!






Coco is a 2-3 year old, 8-lb. brindle chihuahua who came from a very neglectful home. They never took her outside or socialized her, which resulted in her being nervous & shy in new situations. Now that she is with Maeday we have been socializing her & giving her the confidence she needs to be a happy dog. She now walks great on leash, is potty trained, loves to play with toys, is an excellent cuddler & great with other dogs!! She is of course still shy when she meets new people, but once she warms up it’s perfection. She would do best with someone who has patience to help her come out of her shell & or who has dog experience.

Sullivan is a 2 year old mix who has had a rough start to life. He was dumped in a park full of matts, with a broken fibula and a broken tail. You would think all of this would make him grumpy, but all he wants to do is cuddle and love. He is great with other dogs, loves the dog park, is good on leash, is hypoallergenic and is a sweet guy. Because of how his tail healed, he has to have surgery to fix it. Once he is all healed up, he will be ready to find his forever home! If you are interested in adopting him, put your application in.




Vida is a 1 year old lab/beagle mix who came to us from Tijuana with her puppies. She is still a puppy herself & is the sweetest! She took a little time warm up to us, which is to be expected after living on the streets with her puppies. She loves other dogs, likes to play & is a cuddle bug.

Meet our newest pup, Lola! This tiny gal is fancy & came to us with painted nails (zoom in) Her family loved her, but they didn’t realize they weren’t allowed to have dogs in their building, so they were forced to give her away. She is now safe with us, looking for her forever home. She is super dainty & weighs only 3-4  pounds. She is good with other dogs, likes to cuddle & would make a great travel companion.



Annie is a sweet blind 1 year old poodle mix who was dumped in a park with her pal Sullivan. It seems she was born blind & it breaks our hearts that someone would abandon a handicap dog on the streets. Annie & Sullivan needed to be split up because Sullivan was very protective of her. Once they were separated they flourished in their foster homes! Annie loves playing with her foster dog pal, loves being carried in her baby bjorn & learned how to use the doggie stairs into the bed very fast. She is a very smart gal & we know her perfect person is out there!

Taquito is one of the puppies that was rescued from the streets of Mexico with his litter mates and mom. He is a super smart, spunky 8 week old little guy, who is a typical puppy. Out if his litter mates, he was the first one to use the pee pads on his own & gets all his potty on them 99% if the time. He already plays fetch & makes great eye contact. He is also the biggest, weighing 2lbs 12oz at 8 weeks!! Since he is so young, he needs a home where someone has time for a puppy & is excited to train! Put in your application for this tiny dude.



Justin is 2 years old and was saved from the San Pedro Harbor shelter. This guy is a real dreamboat! He's super chill, walks on a leash like a champ and is crazy about other dogs. He also loves to snuggle and be next to his human.

Scout is a Lab Mix puppy who is a typical fun loving puppy. We think she is going to be a big gal at around 60 pounds when full grown. She loves life, is floppy, is picking up potty training, is great with all animals and dogs!
