He just loves to be near people, nighttime finds him snuggled up next to a person where he is quiet and content. He gets to sleep in his foster moms bed and is an undercover lover who likes to burrow and stay warm all night. He can be trained to sleep in a bed on the floor if you prefer.

Cooper’s super happy to be with other dogs, big or small and he's so good on leash the 2 year old in the house takes him in the backyard for walks! He is great with young children even babies. He is untested with cats. Cooper is house trained and doesn’t need to be crated when you go out. This little guy is a very good boy with manners. He would like a canine friend if his people were gone all day at work, otherwise he would love to be an only dog if you are home most of the day.

He greets the family members with so much enthusiasm, standing on his hind legs, tail wagging, and gently pawing for attention. He is easily trainable since he's eager to please and very intelligent. He is the best little companion."

About DogZone Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

DogZone Rescue is a group of individuals who are dedicated to ending the pet overpopulation and senseless killing of adoptable dogs. Our foster dogs come from shelters throughout California; we also take in strays off the streets and owner surrenders. We work closely with private Foster homes that are critical to continue our mission to save these precious animals.

We are all unpaid volunteers, and 100% of the adoption fees and donations go towards caring for our rescued dogs. It is our mission to rescue and provide safe haven to as many abused, abandoned and unwanted dogs as we have room for. These dogs would otherwise die in kill shelters or on the streets or meet any number of horrible ends that befall the unwanted. We don't discriminate; we save dogs, regardless of its age or condition.

Prior to every adoption, all of our dogs will be spayed/neutered, current on all vaccines, rabies, dewormed and microchipped. We rescue, nurture and place Senior Dogs & Special Needs Dogs, along with the young and healthy. Here you will find a variety of breeds and ages.

We are also always looking for dedicated volunteers that would like to help. In addition to foster homes we always can use help with transports in your area and home visits. If you are able to dedicate a few hours each week, we would be happy to have you join our team.

Complete Vetting is provided to our foster dogs including Microchip, up to date on Vaccines, Wellness exam, Spay or Neuter. We have a network of knowledgeable people who have been in rescue for many years who can guide you as you help save a life. While in foster care we learn their personalities and temperaments as well as work with them on crate training, house training and basic house manners. Then we help our adopters while the dog settles in.

Our Adoption Process...

The first step to adopting is to complete the Adoption Application and submit it to the Dog Zone Rescue. You will be contacted right away by a representative of the rescue once we receive it. Our application process includes adopter, Veterinarian if you already have a pet, personal interviews, and a Home Inspection to ensure the environment is safe for the dog. It usually takes no more than 2 -3 weeks from the time we receive the application for your dog to come home to you. Our policy is to find the Best home for each dog, where it will thrive in the environment of its new forever home. Although we work the applications on a first come, first served policy, it doesn't necessarily mean that the first application is the perfect fit. If the dog you applied for is not a good match for your home, we will make sure to work closely with you and your family to find which one of our precious dogs will be a great fit for your lifestyle. You can be assured that we do not misrepresent our dogs...we are absolutely honest when we tell you about our dogs.

We do adopt out of state but there will be an additional charge for a health certificate if needed and for anything else you need to get your new family member home. If you choose to fly the dog home you will be responsible for the cost of the flight, the health certificate. We will only consider out of state adoptions if the adopter comes to California and returns with the dog, if flying in the passenger area of the plane, we will not ship cargo.We will also adopt out of state if the adopter drives both ways.

Our adoption fee varies depending on the dog's breed and age. The range is $150 - $275. We do offer training support with all our adoptions; just contact us if you need help. The dogs are nurtured in foster homes and given basic training and treated for any injuries or illnesses that we are aware of.

Senior-to senior program: On dogs 10 years old and older we work on a case by case basis and will reduce fees where we can.
