Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a rescue, located in the Central Valley so please be willing to make the trip to see them if you are from out of the area. Our adoption process REQUIRES that an application must first be submitted and approved prior to meeting any of our pets.

About Our Rescue Group:

Time has taught us recycled pets are simply pets with some experience that need to adapt to new and appropriate living situations. Having transported, fostered and adopted shelter pets, we see the reality of overpopulation and misguided expectations. Often these pets are abandoned through no fault of their own. A puppy grows up, people get married or divorced, children are born or go off to college, and, sadly, economic factors are just some of the reasons we have seen for abandonment of a once loved family member. Coming from a home, the environment of a shelter can be shocking, and a shelter assessment faulty. Fear can be misinterpreted. Lack of exercise can cause a dog to display behavior that is inappropriate. Undiagnosed physical conditions can give a false impression of some behaviors. These pets simply need to be brought back into a home environment and practice living skills.

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, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
