Ivy is a 50 lb, 5-year-old sweetie. She's a Wheaten Terrier/Bearded Collie mix who is quite curious and is completely comfortable around everyone. She loves all dogs, especially small ones and quickly takes on the role of Mama with them. She's incredibly gentle and loving with all that she meets. She has a lot of energy and would do great in a home with another dog or two, and with a family that loves to exercise their dog(s) mentally and physically. She's incredibly smart and loves training! Ivy's a big fan of water and will probably love to be a swimmer. Kids adore her and she certainly adores them back! She doesn't mind people poking around her ears, mouth or paws and is very patient and gentle especially when someone has treats she desires.

If interested you are interested in Ivy, please go to the Bill Foundation websiteand fill out an adoption application.

Bill Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dog rescue that works together with local shelters, rescuers, veterinarians and trainers to save dogs in dire situations and place them into forever homes. Relying solely on donations, Bill Foundation does not have an endowment, nor do we receive funding from any city, county, state or federal sources. Every dollar contributed brings us closer to the day when no dog is left behind.

Willow and Night are each about a year and a half old and have lived their entire lives together. Willow is a beautiful Siamese mix who is very sweet but also very shy, unless she is in the presence of her sister. Night is sweet and loves affection, and is Willow's loyal counterpart. These two beautiful ladies are joined at the hip. Voice for the Animals would love to find them a home together; they would make a wonderful addition to any family. Both are fixed, micro-chipped, up-to-date on shots, and in great health. Call Alex at (310) 392-5153 for more info.Voice For The Animals Foundation is devoted to creating respect and empathy for animals through education, rescue, legislation, and advocacy.
