Pets at Our Rescue Group:
Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:
Orange County, Riverside County, LA County, San Bernardino County, San Diego County
We rescue dogs from local shelters and enroll them in a 10 week training program in one of our Cell Dogs Programs at local juvenile and adult correctional facilities. Upon graduating from the program, the dogs are lovingly adopted into their “fur-ever” homes. In addition to saving the lives of wonderful shelter dogs, our program helps rehabilitate incarcerated youth and adults as they learn key life and career skills, which help them become better individuals when they return to the community. In our program at the CA Institution for Women, the women train dogs for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Come Meet our Pets:
Since the dogs are being trained and live with wards/inmates at a correctional facility, special arrangements must be made in order to meet the dogs. Please complete our adoption application by visiting our web site: http://www.pathwaystohope.org/pth14_016.htm
For more information on our program or available dogs, please contact Donna Shawver @ 714-474-4823.
Our Adoption Process:
We do charge an adoption fee with every adopted animal. The fee is tax deductible and considered a donation to our non- profit organization.. Adoption application & Contract is required. (Application can be found on our web site: http://www.pathwaystohope.org/pth14_016.htm) All of our dogs receive basic obedience training, are house & crate trained, up to date on all vaccinations, are Microchipped and are spay/neutered. Because our dogs spend a minimum of 10 weeks in training we will be able to tell you about the dogs temperament and behavior. We use "force free" training methods which teach the dog with love using positive reinforcement.
