Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Shelter Hope pet Shop is located inside Janss Marketplace in Thousand Okas, California. We serve Thousand Oaks, Agoura Hills, Calabassas, Ventura, Simi Valley and beyond...

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a volunteer-based pet shop that carries shelter animals available for in-store adoption. Janss Marketplace donates the space to us, we have amazing volunteers, and we pull animals from surrounding high-kill shelters, and showcase them in a busy mall environment, where they gain great exposure and find loving new homes.

We have found over 500 homes for shelter animals in our first year.

SHPS is part of the Shelter Hope Project, which strives to make this the business model for all mall pet shops. We hope to abolish all puppy-mill pet shops, help find homes for the countless pets in our shelters that face being euthanized, and educate the public on how we can ALL help reduce future shelter population.

Come Meet our Pets:

Shelter Hope Pet Shop is located in Janss Marketplace, 275 N. Moorpark Rd, #193F, in Thousand Oaks. We're located between Gold's Gym and Sears inside the Janss Marketplace mall. We're open Wednesday 11am-3pm, Thursday-Saturday from 11am-5pm, and on Sunday, 11am-4pm. We also do off-site events as much as possible to get more animals adopted...

Our Adoption Process:

Adopters fill out an adoption application, which asks questions such as where will they house the dog, what type of enclosure, do they have other pets, home or apartment, training aspirations, and what would they do if they could no longer keep the dog... they must also agree to a home inspection.

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, 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.
