Doggie Protective Services, DPS Rescue
Doggie Protective Services, better known as DPS Rescue, was founded in 2001, as a nonprofit organization that rescues dogs and cats of all ages, sizes, and breeds from throughout the state of California. We do not have a shelter facility and all of our dogs live in foster homes from intake through adoption. We specialize in rescuing those that may be at risk of euthanasia, including pregnant and nursing mama dogs, medical cases, and the shy and shut down pups who do not thrive in the shelter environment. We don’t just rescue dogs! We also have a team that rescues cats and kittens, including bottle babies and nursing mama cats, and cares for them until they are old enough to be adopted.

We reach out to senior dogs at risk, give them the care they need, and find them loving forever homes. If we had our way, no dog would spend their last days in a shelter. There is so much love and joy in these dogs! Muttville’s cage-free facility (first in the nation), foster program, on-site veterinary suite, and hospice program are innovations that have been lauded and emulated around the country.
