About Puppy Lifesaver
About Our Rescue Group...
Puppy Lifesaver is the effort of several individuals who are interested in the care, well being, and the search for forever homes for homeless, abandoned, and, sadly, sometimes abused pets. Located in southwest Santa Rosa, the rescued dogs find themselves in a facility that promotes socialization, kindness, and care. They are given time to adjust, heal, play, and socialize. Our dogs and puppies are exposed to cats and other dogs regularly. They get to play in large, fenced areas as much away from the kennel/shelter scene as we can get them.
When you adopt a new friend from Puppy Lifesaver, you can rest assured that we have done our utmost to adapt the pet to as many circumstances as they might encounter in their new life with a new family. The volunteers who help us have years of experience in kennel work, veterinary assistance, and professional dog training. This is their way of “giving back” to a community of animals who deserve more than they have been given. It is our desire to replace their tumultuous past with love, affection and kindness. It is a wonderful thing to see these deserving puppies and dogs respond to this kind of care. To watch them rebound with love, enthusiasm, and respect, then to go to their forever homes with a new found purpose to be the best family member they can be, is the greatest reward we could imagine.
Come Meet Our Pets...Please schedule an appointment to come and view our rescue dogs in a safe, comfortable environment. Our facility is open daily from 7:00am – 7:00pm, but meeting with our rescues does require an appointment to allow both us and the dogs the time and focus to spend with you. Rescues will not be shown without an appointment.
Our Adoption Process...
We do our best to be available as often as possible and return calls as soon as we can, and there is always someone on site - 24 hours a day - caring for our dogs. So if we don't answer, leave a message and please know that we're out cleaning, feeding, or playing, and will call you back ASAP!
Our adoption fee is $350. This helps us offset the costs of running our rescue and lets us continue to give shelter dogs the second chance they deserve.
We require adopters to sign a basic contract. Any other requirements, such as yard size, time away from home, etc., are on a case-by-case basis and tailored to meet each individual dog's needs. We like to meet with adopters face-to-face and get a good sense of the home the dogs will be living in.
