San Francisco
Contra Costa

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a non-profit, ALL-VOLUNTEER rescue and animal welfare organization founded in 1995. We
place mostly dogs and mostly those from shelters.
We try to help individuals who need to re-home their
animals by providing a 'packet of information' which allows THEM to do what WE DO and offering them
multiple suggestions for re-homing the animal.
I am the founder of All Creatures and I do it because
of my FUNKTIONLUST --- I do best what I love and
I love all animals.

Come Meet our Pets:

Prospective adopters MUST complete an application found on our website prior to meeting any of our
listed animals.

We do not do 'on-site' adoptions. We do fewer adoptions and they take longer, but we introduce those people and dogs who seem most like a 'match to us.

When we believe we have a match, we call the applicant to set up an appointment at our own "doggy yard", a
1/2 acre, fully fenced yard.

Our Adoption Process:

We have an adoption contract (shown on our web site).
Our fees vary, but the most common is: $ 225 for
each dog and includes spay or neuter, rabies and
DAP or DHLPP vaccinations. Some adoption fees can be as high as @ $250 and some as low as $ 125.
If a dog has to be in boarding, our costs are usually even greater than $225.

We admit to being pretty fussy.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
