About Our Rescue Group:

We are a brand new rescue-just formed in 2010. We work almost exclusively with the homeless in Fresno educating them on proper nutrition and care of their pets (mostly dogs). We provide food, shots, worm medicines and parasite control to them and arrange for free spaying/neutering. We accept some of these animals in to our rescue when their owners must relinquish them and they are placed in foster care until they are adopted into a forever home. We began working with this population when we discovered that first of all, it existed and second of all that the majority of the homeless population love their animals and want to take care of them properly. We are animal lovers first and foremost and want to be sure that they are cared for and loved by their human family.

Come Meet our Pets:

We attend any and all events that we are invited to and are working on getting a spot at our local Pet Extreme so that we can work on adoptions of the dogs that are in our rescue. We will also be attending a Super Adoption that will be held at our university in May.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption fee is $150.
Adopters must complete an adoption application and be willing to submit to a home visit as needed. Once the application is approved, they must then complete the adoption contract which in part requires that if the dog must be surrendered that it is returned to Westside Rescue regardless of the amount of time that has passed. We require that all dogs be indoor/outdoor dogs and that they have access to sleeping inside at night. They cannot be left alone for extended periods of time nor tethered for any reason.

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.
