Chacha & Maybelline
Foster to Adopt

In August 2022, Chacha and Maybelline were rescued frrom a hoarding case that involved 85 dogs. They arrived at the rescue in a state of filth and fear.

Chacha was eight months pregnant upon arrival. She gave birth to eight adorable puppies. She has made remarkable progress, now welcoming gentle touches and affection from Healing Heart volunteers. While Chacha may still shy away from being picked up, she has opened up to human companionship.

Maybelline may approach you with caution, but her curiosity for treats and toys is a sign of her emerging trust. Though she may not yet be ready for physical touch, her personality is blossoming.


Chacha and Maybelline have discovered the joys of playing with toys and the comfort of a grassy lawn beneath their paws. They are in need of a forever home that will cherish their progress, respect their boundaries, and offer them the secure haven they deserve.


This is where the right adopter comes in. A patient heart,  commitment to their well-being, and dedication to the work of rescue can make all the difference. They require a foster-to-adopt approach, allowing them the time to acclimate to their new surroundings and to forge a bond at their own pace. We are unsure if they are truly bonded, so they will need to be together at first.

Please note that the foster process will require you to visit our shelter, giving Chacha and Maybelline the opportunity to become acquainted with you. This step is crucial in building a strong foundation for their trust and eventual companionship.


Maybelline and Chacha deserve a chance to thrive in a home environment, and their adopter will have the joy of seeing them become the dogs they are meant to be.
