Not all animals are at adoptions due to limited space. If you come to adoptions without prior contact to set up a meet and greet, the animal you are interested in may not be there. If you are interested in any of them please go to our website and follow our adoption process.

Please do not contact Unleashed about adoptions.
Unleashed personnel are not aware of current pet availability.

Our Adoption Process:

Our adoption process requires that an application be filled out and submitted via our website.
The application will then be submitted to the Board of Directors for review to determine whether or not your application represents the best situation for the pet you applied to adopt.
If the Board of Directors approves your application, you will be notified to set up a meet & greet with animal you are interested in. If adopting, you will be asked to sign an adoption contract and pay the tax deductible donation. We can only adopt to homes in the Southern California area.

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.
