Urgent Foster Plea!!

Puppiessss!!! ❤️ We are falling hard for these adorable 3-month old babies who need a helping hand. We need loving foster homes immediately to keep them safe. In the OC, Ca or surrounding areas, email foster@ocpbr.org or fill out a foster application here:http://www.ocpbr.org/foster/foster-application/

Last Friday, we found out about an injured puppy and a litter in the LA area that needed help. We partnered up with Ghetto Rescue FFoundation (GRFF) who were able to rush the injured pup to the vet where she was taken care of. She is now healing and she and her litter mates need our help.

Now we need fosters to keep them safe. The puppies are super smart and social, and absolutely adorable! If you have the time to care for puppies, to teach them, to crate train with scheduled potty and exercise breaks throughout the day, please email foster@ocpbr.org

Hartley’s Story
Hartley is a one and a half year old petite beauty who has experienced the worst in life: homelessness, illness, neglect and being adopted only to return to the pound. Regardless, her sweet and playful personality still shines through. She is a survivor in every sense, being subjected to a high kill shelter system multiple times – most recently as a forced owner surrender pending a criminal investigation.

She is in urgent need of a foster-to-adopter or adopter. Please email foster@ocpbr.org or adopt@ocpbr.org. Thank you!

The Champions Documentary Viewing

Thursday, April 14, 2016

OCPBR and SoCal Pitbull TEAM host a “one night only” screening and fundraiser of The Champions Documentary about the Michael Vick dogs on 4/14/16 at 7:30pm. Get your tickets now before they sell out at https://www.tugg.com/events/93925. This is the only local OC and surrounding cities screening for this award winning documentary.


“The Champions is an inspirational story about the Pit Bulls rescued from the brutal fighting ring of former Atlanta Falcon’s star quarterback Michael Vick, and those who risked it all to save them, despite pressure from PETA and The Humane Society of the United States to euthanize the dogs.  It is a story of second-chances, redemption and hope. This uplifting documentary takes us on a journey about much more than just dogs—about prejudice, being misunderstood, the power of resilience, and the significance of the relationship we as humans have with animals.” For more information about the movie please visit http://www.championsdocumentary.com

Johnny Depp needs a foster home!

Still looking, Johnny? Say it isn’t so! Accepting local foster or foster-to-adopt applications (in the O.C., CA or surrounding areas) for this 7-month old sweetheart. Email foster@ocpbr.org or fill out a foster application here.


Johnny Depp is a coffee shop dog, an out and about around town kind of dog. Although he is a very active and playful pup at home and on walks, he is SO mellow when out with his people. He loves all dogs and and people and loves to play. Johnny is too playful to be in a home with cats, but he’ll need a another dog to play with and to mentor him as he grows. This guy is simply a delight to be around. Someone is going to luck out with this wonderful guy!

If you are in the Orange County or surrounding areas and would like to foster or foster-to-adopt Johnny, email foster@ocpbr.org or fill at an application at www.ocpbr.org. He needs a break after his former owners locked him in a bathroom for 3 weeks, covered in his own feces, waiting for the care they never gave him. But, he doesn’t hold that against anyone. He is sweet, loving, and fun!
