Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Precious Paws adopts their pets out locally in the San Fernando Valley, San Gabriel Valley and other areas of Los Angeles County. We do not do long distance placements. We find that local placements are the best because we can continue to be there for the new adopters through the life of the animal if need be.

About Our Rescue Group:

The primary purpose of Precious Paws is to rescue abandoned and/or abused companion animals. These animals may be found on the streets, in shelters, or even relinquished by their owners. All animals will be spayed or neutered, vaccinated, tested and healthy before they are placed for adoption into new homes. This will be the main focus of all of our activities. It provides the public with the service of the humane rescue of animals and saves the lives of animals that are in need. These animals will be placed into the homes of our volunteers to be cared for until they are adopted and placed into their new permanent homes. These permanent homes will be found mainly through adoption events which will generally be held at pet stores.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an Adoption Procedure and Application. Pending approval, based upon application, in-person interview, reference checks and review of all information by our Board of Directors, we schedule a Home Placement. We have an Adoption Contract for you to read, discuss and sign. We provide a Two-Week Trial Period and a Lifetime Return Policy. NO pet is released from ANY of our adoption events / locations. As stated above, we do home placements.

NOTE: Not everyone who applies for a pet will get a pet. This has more to do with the pet than with the applicant. However, every application will be considered, and is deeply appreciated!

There is more in depth information available on our website, Including Fee info (fees are subject to change). LOOK FOR OUR SPECIAL DISCOUNT FOR CATS / KITTENS. www.PreciousPaws.org

If you plan on coming out to visit us at one of our adoption event venues, please call the venue or email us first to ensure that we are there.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
