Welcome to Thrive Animal Rescue. Our mission is to save abandoned dogs from the loneliness of shelter life and place them into loving families and forever homes.
Available Now For Adoption
Two year old neutered male Pitbull who is the sweetest dog EVER according to his trainer and foster mom. He’s great with all dogs and children, loves to be cuddled and he lays his head on your shoulder while sleeping on your lap. He is underweight at 56 lbs, but gaining weight nicely.
He is currently recovering from wounds caused as a result of being owned by terribly inhumane monsters who do not belong on this planet. He is safe and happy now.
Liam is a 1 year old male Aussie mix. Great temperment, three legs due to an accident that resulted in amputation of his right hind leg. He is SO GREAT! Loves people and gets along with dogs.
What we love about these two shy beauties, is how much they love other dogs. That is definitely a theme for us at Thrive- we try our best to find dogs who like dogs as much as we do. We knew it would be some time before they were ready for adoption, so we sent them to Dusty Tails Lodge to get them acclimated to life among human kindness, and now, several months later, they are coming around. Here is Marlie’s report on the girls.
“These girls came to us when they were around 12-14 weeks old. They were beyond terrified and wanted nothing to do with people. They were perfectly happy being in their crates and being left alone. We gave them some time to acclimate to their new environment and then had them take turns each day being in a crate in the middle of the house, so they could get used to all the sounds, and sights that go along with being in a household with people and other dogs. We started to notice they loved to be around the other dogs, it was the humans they were very afraid of. If out in the yard with the other dogs they would run and play but as soon as they realized we were around they would scatter and run for their crates. I took turns attaching them to my waist and having them follow me all over the house and I would give them treats all day long. This really helped form a closer and more trusting bond with the girls.”
This cute little male Cattle Dog is neutered , house broken and ready to meet his new family!
Ginger weighs about 12 lbs and sweet as a gingerbread cookie!
This little was found over a week ago on a freeway on-ramp. She is estimated to be 4-5 months and about 25-30lbs. She is a shepherd mix with large ears. She loves people, dogs and is friendly with cats. She has a tiny bit of separation anxiety but that's something she will grow out of with the right dog parent.

There are many ways in which you can help us THRIVE! We are profoundly grateful for the families who choose to donate, volunteer by opening their home to a dog in need of fostering, or sponsor a senior. Becoming a foster family enables Thrive to pull even more dogs from the shelters and place them into a safe environment where they learn to love and trust humans before they find their forever home.

Thrive Animal Rescue is raising money for a free Spay and Neuter Clinic in Tijuana on May 19th.
The Rescue Express Puppy Pipeline is gearing up for a transport date the third week of April. Our rescue heroines, Simply Southern Rescue and The Rescue Life (Leigh Ann Albritton, Ren Dowhaniuk and Shannon Poole Hagan) will be coordinating this amazing rescue effort. The focus will be on moving puppies and their mothers out of the local shelters and off the streets while they wait for their ride to California.
