The Brittany Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) charity dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, care and placement of homeless dogs.

The dogs are shown at our weekly adoption program at our sanctuary in Agua Dulce. Please check our schedule for adoption events. While in our care, the dogs are spayed or neutered, vaccinated, and given a thorough check-up along with any necessary medical attention. Our dogs are also microchipped.  If dogs are not adopted, they will live at the sanctuary for their entire life.  We run a no-kill facility.

We rescue all dogs, regardless of breed, and we often focus our efforts on the harder-to-place dogs such as seniors, disabled or abused dogs, and "media condemned" breeds such as Pit Bulls, Chow Chows, & Dobies. It's relatively easy to find a home for a cute little terrier, but the gratification for us comes from placing the 6-year-old Pit Bull with one eye, the stray mutt who has never had a home before, or the 12-year-old Doberman with severe separation anxiety (who is now living in a wonderful home of his own). Of course, we also have the adorable, easy, well-behaved angels who are still searching for their forever homes too.

 

 
Memorial Event and Chili Cookoff!

Please join us at our annual Memorial Event and Chili Cookoff at The Brittany Foundation Sanctuary on Saturday, May 14!  Our mystery chefs will be competing for Best Chili, and after the Cookoff we will host a special Memorial Event to honor our departed loved ones.

Brittany Foundation Sanctuary
Saturday, May 14, 2016
11:00 - 3:00
If you have not been to the sanctuary before, please call 661-713-5240 for directions

Please RSVP to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 661-713-5240 with the number of people in your party if you plan to attend, so our mystery chefs make enough chili for everyone!

This year, we are remembering our loved ones with beautiful and colorful pinwheels, which we will plant in our Memorial Garden. For each donation of $10, we will inscribe your loved one's name on a petal of the pinwheel. Each name is $10. Human, doggie, kitty, or any soul that you have loved and lost deserves a special remembrance pinwheel.  See below for ordering information.

The event will run from 11am to 3pm. Pinwheels with names will be planted ahead of time, but you are welcome to plant additional pinwheels that day. Each attendee will receive a token pinwheel and small bottle of bubbles to blow during the traditional playing of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow."

This year, for the first time, you have the opportunity to take home a beautiful urn necklace or keychain for a donation of $15 each. Sturdy, discreet, and secure, these urns are 1.75 inches tall and have a clear vial inside to hold a small amount of your loved one's ashes, so you can keep them close to you always. The urns unscrew to open the storage chamber. The screw-on cap provides a waterproof seal, and inside is a clear vial to keep the ashes safe and dry. These urns are strong and lightweight enough to carry every day, and fit nicely on a necklace or keychain. Made of anodized aluminum.  See below for order information.

NAMES ON PINWHEELS: Please indicate in the comments section if you would like each name on one pinwheel, or multiple names on one pinwheel. Look for the comments section under your mailing address in the Paypal screen; click "Add" to open the comments box.

Options

Angel Wings Necklace
Bejeweled Paw Necklace
Dog Bone Keychain

Please be sure to add Shipping if you would like the urns shipped to you.  If you do not select Shipping, we will assume you plan to attend the event and we will hold them for pickup.

We are Volunteers

volunteers

The Brittany Foundation is an all-volunteer organization. Our devoted staff handles the care, feeding, event coordination, public awareness campaigns and many other needs for our busy facility. Brittany Foundation volunteers know each dog personally, and they know how to assist you in finding the right dog for your needs, home and lifestyle.

Without the devotion to animals that the Brittany Foundation volunteers bring to our organization, we could not survive to help these dogs find homes.

If you are interested in volunteering, check out the "How to Help" section of our website. Even if you can't give a dog a home, you can make a difference in an animal's life. The Brittany Foundation is always seeking fellow dog lovers to assist our humane mission.

 
Even if you can't adopt, our dogs could still use your support. It's easy! Just click on the PayPal button below. Thank you.

We need labor for construction, landscape maintenance, providing socialization and care for the dogs in their kennels, staffing events and administrative tasks. We are a working ranch that always has projects which require help, for example with brush clearance during fire season.
