Dixon is a 2-year-old, 12-pound Chihuahua mix with a coat the color of a copper penny. He came to AFRP from the Monterey County Animal Shelter after being picked up as a stray. A bit shy when he first arrived, Dixon's personality is blossoming. He enjoys going for walks and gets along fine with other dogs. This guy absolutely loves kids so might be a good fit for a fairly calm and quiet family. Dixon wants to chase cats, so needs a home with no felines. He's looking for an adopter that can continue to build his confidence.

Our Adoption Process...

The adoption fee for a cat is $150 which includes their spay/neuter, vaccines, microchipping, and FIV/FeLV testing. The adoption fee is $200-$300. The adoption fee helps to cover the cost of the care the animal has received, including spay/neuter, vaccines, microchipping, deworming, and flea treatment.

All potential adopters complete an application and are screened using a standardized series of questions by a trained adoption counselor. If the application and screening are satisfactory, a qualified adopter can complete a contract, pay the adoption fee and take the animal home.
