The mission of Old English Sheepdog Rescue of Southern California, Inc. is to place healthy but unwanted purebred Old English Sheepdogs in loving homes. Over 1700 Old English Sheepdogs have been helped by our rescue program since 1989. Our rescue dogs come to us from two sources:
1. Local animal shelters
2. Owners who are unable to keep their dogs
When a dog enters our program, it spends the first 48-72 hours with our veterinarians. If the veterinarian feels that the dog is a good candidate for rescue, the dog is spayed/neutered, micro-chipped and given all shots. Our rescue dogs are groomed prior to adoption.
OES Rescue of Southern California, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit rescue of volunteers places 2-4 Old English Sheepdogs per month. The average age of our rescue dogs is 3 years. Our “area” of rescue includes Fresno to the north, the California state line to the east, San Diego to the south, and the Pacific Ocean to the west. We also cover parts of Arizona and Southern Nevada. We provide a packet of OES breed information and/or rescue information upon request.
