Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

Animals listed here are either rescued from the Stockton, California pound or from the streets of Stockton and San Joaquin Counties, or are listed for re-homing to prevent their being surrendered to the Stockton pound. I have transported dogs from the central valley to the Bay Area, northern California, and Washington.

About Our Rescue Group:

X-Mutts is the rescue and re-homing effort that grew out of Central California Pets Alive, a grassroots advocacy effort to reform Stockton Animal Services.

We are not a 501(c)3 organization, though we work with several rescues. Our advocacy has led us to rescue animals from Stockton Animal Services and strays. We also sometimes feature "courtesy posts"--for information, contact

Come Meet our Pets:

All pets are in foster homes or boarding and are available to meet by appointment.

Our Adoption Process:

The adoption process involves a phone or email screening and home visit. Adoption fees of $100-350 cover neuter, vaccinations and other veterinary care, and sometimes boarding. The adoption contract is a very basic document outlining that the new owner will provide all needed care and that if the owner is ever unable to care for the animal, she/he will not be surrendered to a pound, and that I will take him/her back or help re-home that pet.

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.
