Giving dogs a new start at a happy life!
Open Arms Rescue rescues smaller breed dogs. We are a Non-Profit 501c3 Registered Charity and all volunteer based organization. We are always looking for more volunteers to help foster a small breed dog. We rescue dogs from shelters across Southern California and all the way into the Mexico -Tijuana Perrera (Dog Pound). We are based in Imperial Beach, CA but we have volunteers who foster dogs for us all across the county. We also take in injured dogs that require surgeries to become healthy and adoptable. As when a shelter receives an injured dog they cannot always have a surgery done to it due to their limited resources. They will usually only release injured dogs or special need dogs to rescues who can get the necessary medical care performed. We also have a relationship w/the Tijuana and the Mexicali Perrera (dog pound) where we have volunteers that go down there on a regular basis to help out with feeding, cleaning and finding dogs to bring into our rescue program. Dogs in the Perrera only have 3 days before they are euthanized. We try to focus on this shelter since they really don't have much of a chance of being adopted before they are either euthanized or become sick from being exposed to disease (as they are not vaccinated there when they first come into the Perrera). We select dogs that are adoptable, we quarantine them, monitor them, vaccinate them and then transport them to the US into volunteers homes for fostering until they can be adopted. Before our dogs can be adopted we have them spayed or neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, flea/tick treated and de-wormed. We are always in need of people wanting to become volunteer fosters too. If you would like more info on becoming a volunteer foster parent please see the last page on this site "volunteering to foster" and if you would like to be contacted send us your info on "contact us" page.
