Hi, my name is Fred. A couple of years ago I was running loose in Eagle Rock without a microchip or any idea of where I lived. Hey, I was young and hadn’t been “fixed” yet. Someone found me and took me into their house “temporarily” until they could find my original family, but after all this time, they’re now looking for a permanent home for me. They were nice enough to take me to the vet, get me neutered (I guess that was nice of them), get all my shots and have me live with them and their young son. They even sent me to doggy training to get me used to hanging out with other dogs and to make sure I was house trained and well-behaved. I’m so lovable that I’ve stayed with that same family for almost 2 years!! Unfortunately, they’ve decided to have another baby and between that and their full-time jobs they don’t have as much time to spend with me as we’d both like. I could sure use a home with a yard and some humans who can give me belly rubs and take me for walks. I can be a little nervous around other dogs when I’m on the leash, but other than that I’m adorable, loyal, well-behaved and kind. Let’s get together, and you’ll see what a great doggy I am.

If you are interested in meeting me, please download the Adoption Questionnaire, fill it out and fax it back to us at (310) 362-0321. You can also meet this and/or other available dogs at Forte weekend adoptions.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:

- If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out a questionnaire, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.

- You will be asked to submit to a "home safety check" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.

- An adoption fee is required and you must sign the adoption agreement, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to Forte Animal Rescue only.

- Finally, we personally deliver your new family member to your home.

- Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. Forte Animal Rescue survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.

- Forte Animal Rescue reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.
