Balooja’s Foundation operates an all-breed companion animal rescue, foster-care and adoption program in Upland, California. The emphasis of the rescue is on the dogs most in danger of being euthanized by the shelter system, especially Pit Bulls and Chihuahuas along with senior animals and those with medical needs.

Balooja’s Foundation removes dogs abandoned by owners and breeders to high-kill shelters and government operated pound facilities, as well as performs rescues of abandoned animals found on the streets. The foundation also rescues animals directly from owners who have surrendered them for a variety of reasons.

The organization provides veterinary care and places the rescued animals with volunteer foster-families, and ultimately, places the animals into proper homes. Baloojas Foundation also conducts public education campaigns to educate the public regarding the social issues associated with pet overpopulation, the benefits of spaying and neutering domestic pets, and the lifelong responsibility that comes along with owning a family pet. The foundation assists low income pet owners in the local area by paying veterinary bills and by providing petfood to enable owners to keep their pets at home rather than to surrender the pets to local animal shelters. All activities are conducted by the volunteers of Balooja's Foundation.


Balooja's Foundation is devoted to saving abused and unwanted dogs from
euthanasia in high-kill shelters. While we are a volunteer-based organization and believe that people can make their own choices, we have adopted the following policy:  donor money will be used for the sole purpose of medical expenses, food, health and rehabilitation. We prescreen all adoptions and fosters to ensure a perfect fit.

As well, Balooja's Foundation will highly encourage donations for those who cannot adopt, foster or volunteer.


To adopt, please go to our available dogs and inquire. Adoption contracts
are available through this site. Donations are recommended and appreciated
and the methods are below. As an all-volunteer organization, Balooja's Foundation is trulythe definition of grassroots activism. We depend completely on caring members of the community to achieve our goal of saving animals.
