Dougie is in foster care, and having a ball.  Here's what his foster mom has to say about him: "Dougie dog may be 8 but he has the energy and happy attitude to keep up with outgoing and happy dogs half his age.  He came from a  home where he was an only dog and much-loved and cherished family member -- great with all age groups.  He can be a bit tentative of new situations, especially loud ones like the shelter but his love-of-life attitude and curiosity about what life is about helps him overcome his shyness quickly if he is supported with love and encouragement.

Dougie likes: People of all sizes and shapes, belly rubs, other dogs that aren't grumpy, lizard hunting and squirrel chasing.  Not so much: power drills and leaf blowers, fearful of aggressive big dogs.

About Rescue Ranch Inc.

About Our Shelter...

Rescue Ranch is a small no kill shelter. We have kennels for 22 dogs. We primarily take in dogs from city and county shelters in Siskiyou County before the dogs are out of time due to space limitations. We also make 3-4 trips a year to county shelters in central California to save smaller dogs that can overwhelm shelter resources in those counties. We started about 18 years ago with 40 acres far outside Yreka and were able to help many dogs in the county due to the efforts of the founders and many volunteers. In August of 2009 our new facility opened. We are now about 2 miles outside of town on 10 acres. We have been steadily growing through the efforts of the committed staff, volunteers, and volunteer board members. In 2012 we had 80 adoptions, 2013 we had 105 adoptions and in 2014 we are excited to say we placed 167 dogs into happy homes. We operate solely on the generous donations from the public and our wonderful volunteers. We have added boarding to our facility and all proceeds from the boarding fees are used to help with our expenses so we can help more dogs find their forever homes.
Our mission is to Rescue-Nurture-Rehome dogs into loving and safe forever homes---We do it for the dogs!

Our Adoption Process...

if interested in one of our dogs you will need to fill out an application. We also do a home visit if in the area, to make sure you have a secure and a dog-friendly environment. If out of the Siskiyou county area we can easily make other arrangements. Our adoption donation is $150.00. We have a reduced rate for seniors, the disabled, and veterans. Our "Senior for Senior" program offers a further discount and can help with the cost of dog ownership. The adoption fee for puppies who grew up at the Ranch (or in foster here) includes spay/neutering when old enough and is $250.00. All of our dogs are up to date on shots, heart worm tested and any medical issue are treated. Every dog that is going to a new home must be spayed or neutered before they leave Rescue Ranch
