Booker Needs Your Help!


OCPBR’s new precious puppy, Booker, who has tested positive for parvo, is fighting for his life and needs your help. If you can donate in any amount towards his very expensive vet bill, it would be greatly appreciated. To donate, please click on the Donate button on this page (right-hand side) or mail a check to: OCPBR, PO Box 3738, La Habra, California 90632. Any amount would make a huge difference for this little guy who is hanging tough and staying strong.

Booker is currently in the hospital on IV fluids, fighting for his life. Although his foster family limited his exposure by keeping him at home until he had received his final set of vaccines, he still contracted this horrible virus. Parvo can be contracted by inhaling the virus from a neighbor’s dog who is infected; it is also possible for the foster family or sibling foster dogs to bring the virus home with them from a walk.

Treatment for parvo includes a prolonged, multiple night stay at a vet hospital in an isolation unit, IV fluids, antibiotics, multiple blood tests to continually check white blood cells and blood protein levels, multiple urine tests to check to make sure the IV fluids are working and, in some cases, transfusions. Booker is getting round the clock care.

Thank you,

Sadie has officially started her two week adoption trial!!! Her new parents  Jessy and Ina are thrilled to welcome her to their family! Sadie is one lucky girl! To think not that long ago she was clinging to life in a trash can in San Diego…fast forward to now she is the apple of her new family’s eye, has a huge yard of her own to run, play and sun bathe in and has the entire home to call her own. Sadie’s journey wouldn’t have been possible without her simply amazing first time foster mom Anamarie who not only nursed her back to health but taught her commands so she could show off to everyone she met! Yay Sadie!!!

Our fosters are the heart of our organization, without them we couldn’t rescue. Please consider becoming a foster!

Can Jax crash at your pad?

Local foster needed for a playful, sweet boy! Help us keep Jax out of the shelter. The tab’s on us!

OCPBR is looking for a committed foster for Jax, subject to home check and foster care agreement. We pay for everything! More info on Jax is below:

Hi, my name is Jax! I am a 3 year old male neutered Pit Bull mix. I am super sweet! I love playing fetch and going for long walks on the beach. I really love playing with other dogs and children too! I am housebroken and prefer to relax indoors but I enjoy playing outside as well. When it’s bedtime I love cuddling under blankets and snuggling. I have a lot of energy so I need someone who can spend some time exercising me.

Follow this link to see a video of Jax in action!

Due to his owner experiencing serious health issues, he can no longer keep sweet Jax, and he is shelter bound if a foster home isn’t found for him. If you are interested in opening your heart and home to fostering Jax please contact or apply here
