    We adopted Gibson back in 2012 he is very special with his funny bark . He was our gift to our Shepherd so he would have a little brother. They became very close and both are loved so much. Sadly we lost our Gunner. Pet Orphans was very cool and watched our Gunner while we walked through to find our new boy., they made us feel very comfortable. Maybe some day we will come back to find our new fur baby so Gibson can be a big brother. Thank you for our Woo Woo boy.

    We envision a community where all pets are fully integrated into loving and responsible families. Pet Orphans of Southern California is dedicated to combating the national crisis of overpopulation, abandonment and euthanasia by offering all of our services to the community. With our new medical facility, we can offer much needed care to those who are in need.

    POSC is committed to serving its community by rescuing adoptable homeless dogs and cats, providing them with exceptional care and then carefully matching them with suitable adoptive families.

    As the oldest and largest private humane organization that has its own shelter in Southern California, POSC has been rescuing and re-homing animals for over 40 years. We want to continue helping our community by making sure all our rescued pets continue to get the care they need even after they go on to forever homes.

    We work with the community at large, and other non-profit organizations in Southern California.
