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. www.allcreaturesmarin.org

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: $ 250 for
each dog and includes spay or neuter, rabies, Bordatella and
DAP or DHLPP vaccinations and often, a Microchip..
If a dog has to be in boarding, our costs might be higher.

We admit to being pretty fussy when it comes to matching people to the dogs..

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.
