About our Rescue

Founded in April 2001, Lhasa Happy Homes Rescue, Inc., is a private, non-profit, 501(c)3 rescue and foster-care organization located in Santa Monica, CA. We specialize in Lhasa Apso, Shih Tzu and Maltese, but also rescue other small, mixed breed, “hairy” beasts under 20 lbs!

Since our inception, we have saved the lives of over 3,000 dogs. We rescue the sick, broken, displaced, and most at-risk pups who otherwise would join the 15,000 pups in Los Angeles City/Los Angeles County who never make it out of the shelters.

Our ongoing mission is to match families with their ideal pets and give these special pups a second chance at a great new life. We would be honored to help you find your next family member.
