Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
We primarily work with the homeless and their pets, domestic survivors and their pets, and people who can no longer keep their pet due to extreme financial hardship or terminal illness.
We also work extensively with feral cat colonies and provide TNR.
We try to help keep pets out of the shelter and in loving homes, but only when foster homes are available.
We rescue many dogs from their last day's at our local Southern California shelter's and off the streets.
Our primary mission is to keep pet companions OUT of the shelter.
Through our partnership with Animal Shelter Count via Maddie's Fund here is our numbers for 2016.
Maddie’s Fund™, the Pet Rescue Foundation, is a family foundation funded by PeopleSoft Founder Dave Duffield and his wife, Cheryl, to help create a no-kill nation. Maddie’s Fund™ mission is to revolutionize the status and well-being of companion animals. You can read about the work that Maddie’s Fund™ does at its website http://www.maddiesfund.org.

Once we review your application we will respond as quickly as possible to set up an appointment for a meet and greet. *Please see above special notes*.
Every other Saturday a private "meet & greet" will be scheduled so that you can meet your new family member in a calm, fenced in area or agreed upon location so that you can get a better idea of what dog is the best fit for you and your family!
To schedule your meeting please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. An appointment must be made for meet and greets.
Most "meet & greets"will vary and be according to both parties locations. We try to accommodate you as best as possible while keeping the rescued fur kids in a safe environment.
We look forward to meeting you and hope to make a match for your family with one of rescued fur kids!
Thank you so much for choosing to adopt!
ADOPT don't shop!
Please be patient with us responding to your emails. We solely operate on an all volunteer basis it may take several days to respond back.
If you're interested in one of our dogs, we'll ask that you fill out a adoption application and talk with an adoption counselor. If we determine that you and the dog you are interested in adopting could be a good match we'll do a home visit. If all goes well at the home visit we will proceed with the adoption.
Our goal is to find the best match possible for our rescued animals so that the pet and the adopters are happy and the dog will remain in his/her new home forever.
A $200 tax-deductible donation is required for all dog adoptions. A $50 tax-deductible donation is required for all cat adoptions. The dog or cat you adopt will have already been spayed/neutered, will have already received all his/her vaccinations and will also have a microchip!

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.
