Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Potential adopters can visit our dogs on Saturdays only by driving to the Pet Club at 1850 South Norfolk Street in San Mateo.
We are not a shelter where you can visit the dogs during the week.
We do not offer fostering trial periods because we want our dogs to receive permanent homes.
We hold our adoption events at the Pet Club in San Mateo every Saturday from 10:00 AM until 7:00 PM.
Please visit our blog for the latest dog pictures, information and adoption event times at:
Your adopted dog will have: spaying or neutering, microchip implantation, de-worming, flea and tick treatment, 5 in 1, bordatella and rabies shots.
An adoption contract is required before taking your new pet home.
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.
