Our rescue will be at the Palo Alto Pet Food Express Saturday, January 21st from 1-4pm and Sunday, January 22nd from 12-3pm. All of our dogs are spayed/neutered, shots current (DHPP, Bordetella and Rabies where applicable), dewormed, flea and tick treated and microchipped. 

* If you are interested in a dog, please first read the biography on the dog (keep scrolling down for the bio!) and then go to our website, for an application. * We do not have a facility. All dogs live in foster homes. Arrangements to meet dogs occur after an approved application has been accepted. * We do not ship our dogs for any reason. * Our adoption fee is $400 for each dog/puppy. * If it is on a weekend of our adoptions, follow us on @DPSRescue on Twitter to get real time updates on our adoptions. We will also post at the end of the evening the names of those dogs who have been adopted:

Here is our Tommy boy! He is 2 years old and has had a hard knock life up until now. One of our wonderful volunteers rescued this sweet guy from a precarious situation and now he is on his way to finding his forever home. He would like a home that will give him the care and love he has been dreaming about. A home where he will be cherished. He is still settling in at his foster home but seems to be doing pretty well with the other cat and dog that live there. He is a little unsure of things right now and he is probably wondering how he got so lucky to be sleeping in a warm cozy bed and not worrying about where his next meal is coming from. He just needs a home that will give him some time to adjust to the good life, the life he deserves. He has been neutered, vaccinated, tested negative for FIV/FeLV and microchipped. He is ready to start his happily every after. If you think you'd like to give this special guy a home, please fill out an application for him today. His adoption donation is $100.

**Not all of our dogs go to each adoption event. We want to make sure if you are interested in a dog that we have the dog at adoptions but that can only happen if you fill out an application ahead of time and are pre-approved. (Generally this must happen prior to the weekend)

**If you are wanting to submit an application within 24 hours of an event, please print off the application and bring with you as well as submitting it. You may still submit it and if time and volunteers permit, we will contact you. Most applications submitted the weekend of adoptions are not responded to until after the adoption weekend.

About Doggie Protective Services (DPS) - Palo Alto

About Our Rescue Group...

We are passionate folks who love dogs and love people! We strive to make the most appropriate match between human and canine. Because our dogs live in foster homes we know about their temperament and personality and therefore can help families and individuals decide if the dog is a good match or not. We are excited to help people find the right pooch for them and look forward to meeting great folks and welcoming them into the DPS Family.
