Our Adoption Process:

PAPS asks for an in-depth adoption application and we follow up with a phone interview and a home visit. We never place our rescues with children under 6 and our preference is for a home in which the dog is not left alone all day. We are not first-come, first-serve, as we match each dog with its ideal home. Our adoption fees range from $100 to $425, depending on the age and health of the dog. All of our rescues are spayed/neutered, current on shots and examined by a vet before adoption.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

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.
