   We are a 501c-3 dog rescue foundation dedicated to rescuing dogs, the day they are to be euthanized, from various Los Angeles shelters and placing them in loving homes. We do NOT take dogs in ... we rescue only from shelters. The Ace of Hearts Foundation is in memory of "Ace", a wonderful American Bull dog who was rescued from death, and touched the lives of many! (Especially founder Kari Whitman!) We rescue all breeds...and don't discriminate against any!

Seniors for Seniors Program

As an advocate for the underdog, Ace of Hearts largely focuses on seniors who are often ignored because of their age and medical concerns. We believe that seniors deserve to live out their golden years in loving homes, not die in alone a shelter.

We understand that senior citizens often live on a tight budget so we're waiving the adoption fee for all seniors 8 years and older to senior humans who are 65 and older. All dogs are vetted, current on vaccinations, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and we'll even include a month's supply of food.

Our goal is to rescue more at-risk senior dogs from high-kill shelters who will in turn provide unconditional love and companionship to a senior who otherwise would not have had the means to adopt a dog.

In Hudson's Name: Donate Now And Save A Life

Hudson was as perfect as a rescue dog could be. After 15 years of love, joy, and happiness, he left this world. He lived the very best life he possibly could and was a happy dog until his very last breath. He passed under his favorite jacaranda tree with his adopters at his side, holding his paw and head after a day at the beach with his family. He was healthy inside but his body just couldnt keep up. His family wanted him to live and die with dignity and love and he did just that. But devastated doesnt begin to describe how his family is feeling. They are so grateful to Ace of Hearts from saving him from the shelter and allowing them to give him the perfect forever home.

They have asked for dogs lovers everywhere to donate to Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue in his name so we can save others like him who just needed a second chance at life.

Avery - before

Despite the terrible neglect and abuse she has endured, Avery still welcomes hugs!

Poor Avery was rescued just in time from a HORRENDOUS situation in a puppy mill. She is an English bulldog who was overbred until her ovary swelled up to the size of an orange (it should have been the size of a grape!). We can't even imagine the kind of pain she must have been in. Because of neglect, she also has spindle tumors all over. She was sick and malnourished and because of being in such bad shape, ended up needing a blood transfusion after her surgery and had to stay at the vet for three days. Please help cover the cost of helping this brave lady!!! Please visit our donations page to help! And please pass her story on to people who think it's okay to buy puppies from stores!

Avery, recovering from surgery

BUYER WARNING - Procter & Gamble has recently acquired Natura Pet Products

Breaking and heart breaking news�Proctor & Gamble purchases Natura Pet Products. All the products, Innova, Evo, California Naturals, Healthwise and Karma � gobbled up by one of the Big Dogs of pet food. Now a partner food to Iams/Eukanuba. P&G has a dismal record with pet food, and they are legally allowed to change formular ingredients without having to disclose the changes for up to six months. Read more here.

In the greater Los Angeles County shelters alone an average of 475 pets are euthanized daily. There just aren't enough homes for them all. Our goal is to help provide animals a second chance to a happy life and to help reduce pet overpopulation. We save dogs in need and provide them with care and foster homes while they await adoption. We carefully match these pets to new loving and responsible owners. We also try to educate the public on how to be responsible pet owners and on the importance of spaying and neutering. We believe the real solution to pet overpopulation is through spaying and neutering pets. And if you think its ok to breed your little "Fluffy" because she's a purebred, please be aware that over 25% of the animals at shelters are purebreds.

Ace of Hearts Dog Rescue is partnering with Castor & Pollux Pet Works in an effort to provide natural and organic food to pets in shelters and foster care.

If you go to the Castor and Pollux page on Facebook, you'll get reminders about our adoption events, and also become part of a growing pet parent community. But there's more. If you become a fan of their page, they'll donate a kibble meal to Ace of Hearts. Here's how it works. Just go to Click the "like" button to become a fan. Then, simply send an email to Put "Ace of Hearts" in the subject line, and your name (as it appears on your Facebook account) in the body of the email. Castor and Pollux will take care of the rest!

Please become a fan today to feed a pup tomorrow!
