What We Do​

Here at Hand Me Down Dog Rescue, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for pets and their people.


We are located in Bakersfield, CA and our focus is on rescuing working breeds (Border Collies, Cattle Dogs, Australian Shepherds, etc) but we do not discriminate.


We find our rescues from local shelters, and take in dogs that have been abandoned and dogs in serious condition. We try not to take owner surrenders, but find ways to keep pets and owners together. 

Dog of   the   Month

Layla is a German Shepard Mix pup that has had a rough start in life. When we first got her from the shelter, she was absolutely terrified of people, but now, with a little TLC she is warming up to humans. She really enjoys other dogs, which is helping her come out of her shell. She is in need of a great foster that can help develop her in to the happy dog we know she can be.  

If you are interested in fostering or even adopting Layla, email us at
