Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
Rescue, rehabilitate and rehome cattledogs in need, mostly from underserved areas of California; assist with networking of these dogs so hopefully more cattledogs are rescued and on their way to a better life. Aid in education about the breed for owners and prospective owners and provide resources and referral to trainers, classes and activities suitable for the breed so that problems are solved or prevented which means less cattledogs in shelters in need of rescue. Aid in rehoming cattledogs from private owners when possible; Build a community of support and concern for the plight of cattledogs in shelters with ways to volunteer to help the cause; give an overview of what rescue is and how complex and difficult it can be and how every single person who contributes in any small way makes a difference; share the many enjoyable aspects of cattledogs and their abilities and the many jobs and activities they do.
All dogs are altered, vaccinated, heartworm negative and on preventative and microchipped. Some may have additional vaccines (leptospirosis) depending on where they are being fostered. All have been held for a minimum 2 weeks to be sure they are not going to come down with kennel cough or worse. We like to have a dog in our program at least a month to get them healthy and hopefully know any issues that need to be addressed as well as know what the dogs like and enjoy.
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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
