"Touching lives, one animal at a time"

The Lovejoy Foundation, Inc.


The Lovejoy Foundation, Inc. is a registered 5O1(c)(3), 46-276-7859, nonprofit animal welfare organization whose focus is abandoned, neglected, abused homeless dogs and puppies in the Los Angeles, Orange County and San Bernadino areas. We are a no-kill organization who offers an alternative to owners surrendering to the local shelter systems. Our rescues remain with us until a loving, permanent home is found, regardless of how long that may take. Our founder, Erin Lovejoy build this organization with the conviction that no dog is left without a purpose, or without a job, or without a home. 

The Lovejoy Foundation, Inc. rescues all breeds, ages and size dogs and puppies and kittens too. All of our rescues are temperament tested, spayed/neutered, de-wormed, de-flead, treated for any parasites and micro-chipped. They are given all yearly vaccines including Rabies as well. We are dedicated to staying in touch with the adoptive family and following through on each puppy, dog or kitten, to ensure we have accomplished the best fit for the dog/cat and its new family. We also want to fulfill the medical attention necessary that will be provided for every animal we rescue. All medical care is done through The Lovejoy Foundation, Inc. and our contracted Veterinarians. Our policy is that we adopt locally only. Our ultimate goal is to give 100% support to each adopter through open communication, education, support and training.

Quality, not quantity is our goal. It's not how many adoptions we do, it is how many are not returned. Remarkably, our return rate is less and 1%. The Lovejoy Foundation, Inc. has placed over 13000 dogs and counting, in Westside and South Bay counties.
