One of the best parts about what we do is something we hold very near and dear to our hearts and that is giving back to the Rescue community. We work with rescue organizations around the Southern California area to help get these sweet pups adopted by offering our services, free of charge, to give them the glamor shots they deserve. We host their available pups in the Dogma Studio and go live with the photoshoot on social media to give the pups the chance to showcase how amazing they truly are. We have had 3 amazing dogs since we made the move to California, all 3 from rescues and all 3 with incredible personalities and we think it's only fair that others should get to experience that unconditional love that we do on a daily basis!


Since our inception we have hosted over 900 rescue dogs in the Dogma Studio and helped raise sizable donations to give back to the Rescue Organizations. We have a "Rescue of the Month" that we host in the studio and broadcast on our socials and, if we are lucky, we feature a smaller group of dogs as our "Highlight" for the month. Head to our Instagram or Facebook to stay up to date with our Rescue friends.

Our rescue feature for the month of June is K9 Kismet! K9 Kismet believes in the ideology of quality over quantity and focuses their efforts on rescuing dogs at risk of euthanasia and dogs who's owners could no longer take care of them. They make it their mission to focus on the overlooked and undervalued dogs and give them a second chance at life!

MAY Rescue of the month:


For the month of May we are hosting our new friends, the OC Pom Rescue! The Rescue was founded in February of 2020 with a mission to rehabilitate and assist dogs in need. Being founded during the heart of the Covid-19 Pandemic, we admire the support all the volunteers have shown to make that mission possible. OC Pom Rescue is 100% volunteer run and they have an incredible team all throughout Southern California!

Over 1000 rescues have been placed through the rescue over the last 10 years. We appreciate all the hard work they've put in!
