We not only have fostered for 3 years for Bella Vita Rescue, we have adopted our 2 bonded seniors from them.
We love their passion as a mother daughter team and highly recommend their expertise as a compassionate rescue.

We have been a foster for Bella Vita Rescue for over a year. We have fostered 15 senior dogs, helped rehab them and help BVR find their forever homes.
This rescue has more love and heart for dogs and horses than anyone I have ever met in my life.
There has never been a time that this incredible team hasn't been available for these sweet seniors, day or night. We will continue to support Bella Vita and their senior dogs, love them so much.

We just recently adopted our second senior from Bella Vita Rescue. This was a dog they saved from a Los Angeles shelter that had multiple ailments, including blindness. He is a dream dog, exactly what we have been looking for to complete our family. The rescue owner spent a lot of time with us going over diet and and his daily routine. We have worked with other rescues in the past but this rescue really loves and cares about their dogs. We highly recommend them.

We adopted our Shepard Milo from Bella Vita Rescue last year. We are looking for a second Shepard through Bella Vita who has been in touch with us weekly even though shelters are closed.
We have had nonstop support from dietary help to training support. They are excellent mutt matchmakers. We highly recommend this wonderful rescue group.

We just adopted a wonderful senior from Bella Vita Rescue. Our little girl was with Bella Vita for a year. She needed rehab for 2 broken legs and broken teeth from her past owners. We recieved a copy of her medical bills and records. This rescue spent over 7k on her, yet gave us some beautiful pictures and gifts. Thank you for our new baby, we love her and this rescue.

Wonderful group! We adopted a Shepard and a Husky 2 different years from this wonderful rescue. The owner of the rescue rides with us for Search and Rescue and is one of the most animal passionate woman I have ever met. She has also come to the rescue of many hoarding cases. Top notch. I also want to add that we went to 3 different rescues that didn't take any time with us to find our dogs, Jill did and we are still in touch weekly. Highly recommend

We adopted a beautiful Boarder Collie from Bella Vita Rescue last month.
Jill and Denise were amazingly helpful, shopped with us, brought us some great toys to our home after the home check and continued to follow up. Bella Vita feels like part of our family. We will continue to send potential adopters to them. We love our dog Raven xo

We got Max, our TERRIER from this wonderful rescue, and they even helped us find a trainer so he can become a service dog.
Most helpful group we have ever worked with when other rescues didnt.
Adopt a dog from them.

THANK YOU Bella Vita Rescue for our wonderful Sadie!
Sadie has become the wonderful therapy dog you promised. Our little girl (human) is deaf and Jill found us the absolutely perfect fit for her and our family. We would recommend this rescue whole heartedly and might just get a second dog from them.
We love you Bella Vita Rescue!

I adopted my Coco through Bella vita Rescue and paid $450. I never ever had such a bad experience with the owner Jill. She did not give me a receipt for payment, copy of contract for adoption. She took my Coco to spayed at a Vet in Salinas which never happened. No explaination and to this date, I have not received any receipt or copy of my adoption papers. I took Coco who is only 5 pounds to my vet and I was advised that she was way too young to spayed. She is only 3 month and to top it off she said my Coco was a maltipoo and she is not. Part poodle and maybe terrier. She is rude, unprofessional and she threatens.

Jill, the owner of Bella Vita Rescue helped us find the love of our lives. We had lost our dog after 15 years and we had spoken to a few other rescues whom never got back to us. Jill helped in our search and never gave up finding us the perfect dog. I highly recommend this wonderful rescue that helps so many dogs find forever homes. We love you Bella Vita Rescue!
