Welcome to Helping Out Little Dogs Pet Rescue, Inc. (also known as H.O.L.D. Pet Rescue), where the life of every dog matters. We are an IRS approved, non-profit pet rescue organization located in the foothills of El Dorado County. Our organization serves Northern and Central California with emphasis on placement within El Dorado County and surrounding areas (Folsom etc...). Our staff consists of volunteers; we do not have any paid employees.
We rescue small dogs generally weighing under 15 pounds from high-kill shelters. We focus on pulling dogs that have not been claimed by their owners and are in danger of being euthanized. After rescuing a dog from a shelter, the dog is medically examined (and treated if necessary), vaccinated, mirochipped and spayed or neutered (spay / neuter arrangements may differ if adopting a puppy). Only after providing these services do we begin our search for qualified forever homes.
To view our available dogs, click the "Available Dogs" tab located at the top of this page. If you would like information about a specific dog listed on our website, please click the "Contact Us" tab and submit your request online, or you may complete our online adoption application.
