Swoon alert! Bruce Bearsteen is a total superstar, who is having a blast in short term foster, and is now seeking a forever home or long term foster as he’s coming back to the shelter tomorrow, 7/9. Bruce’s foster has AMAZING things to say about this legendary cutie, who we really hope is swooped up soon! Read more about Bruce’s awesome time in foster below!💘
“Bruce Bearsteen is so quiet and gentle. I haven't heard him bark or really make any noise unless he's playing tug o’ war, which he loves. He's very affectionate and will hug you and lick your face. He never bites or snaps not even when playing. He slept through all the fireworks, he seemed to have no anxiety whatsoever. He's fine around people and kids. When I saw him at the shelter there was another family interested and he came right up to the kids and was very friendly. When I take him on walks he's a dream on the leash. I've walked him and let him meet dogs that we come across and he hasn't been a problem, including small dogs. He does seem to prefer more mellow dogs. I haven't had him off leash with any other dogs. He needs some socialization with dogs as he can rush forward in excitement, which may seem pushy to other dogs. A good fit is someone who can train with him and is willing to commit to him forever. Bruce is really a great dog!”
Bruce is 3 years old, and came into the shelter on 12/13/2018, with another dog, Gracie (#A1829786) after their owner was arrested. Message us to meet him, or come meet him at the shelter this week! 🐻💗

He worked his magic and stole their hearts. King was fostered as part of #4days4life , such a good boy and a perfect fit - his foster fam couldn’t let him go. 🙌🏻🖤 @bkluzniak@angelaarmyjoe 😘 thank you guys!!
Hanging with some very special ladies today. 🥰 We’re fostering Shyla (the beautiful pup) for a few days to clear space at our local shelter for dogs that are displaced over the 4th of July. We think she had a rough time with men in the past, so she’s still very unsure of me - as you can see in the photo. 👀 I’m going to do everything I can to get her more comfortable around dudes, so that when she’s ready for adoption, it won’t be as much of a barrier. #4days4life
To our LA fam:
Want to save a life this 4th of July? Head to 4daysforlife.com to learn more about fostering a Los Angeles Animal Services animal for just four days over the 4th July and discounted adoptions! This means you save that animal's life and make room for all the animals coming in due to fireworks. The website has info on how to participate, where to go, and what animals are available. Don't not do it because you'll be sad to take them back to the shelter after the 4th of July, do it to save their lives ❤ #4days4life
We are participating in the #4days4life campaign by fostering a dog during the week of the 4th of July! Did you know that this is the busiest week of the year for animal shelters due to all of the dogs that are surrendered after escaping in fear of fireworks? Fostering for even 4 days can help clear kennel space while the shelter processes all of the lost dogs. Please consider short-term fostering a pup in your community this week! ♥️ Our sweet lil visitor is named Shyla and she is from our local open-intake shelter, @sdhumanesociety! #fosteringsaveslives
July is the worst time for shelter dogs - especially those high on the euthanasia list. Runaways spooked from fireworks take precedent in the shelters so their owners can come to claim them, putting the already existing shelter dogs at HIGH RISK for euthanasia to make room. The LA city shelters are asking for fosters for FOUR days before, during and right after the 4th. DO NOT FEEL BAD ABOUT RETURNING THE DOG AFTER THE 4 DAYS! Being returned gives them at a chance at a forever home instead of ending their life! Please consider visiting your closest LA city shelter and opening your home to a shelter dog for 4 days during the BUSIEST time of year for animal shelters across the U.S.! .
