ACORN's Story...
ACORN (ID# A011925) is a chocolate and tan, female Dachshund and Miniature Pinscher mix puppy. The shelter thinks she was about 3 months old when she arrived on Dec 18, 2008. ACORN was brought in from another shelter as part of our THIRD CHANCE Program. Although she is very adoptable, she may have run out of time at the other shelter. All puppies need lots of love, time and patience for training. If you have all three, please come visit ACORN.

Starting the adoption process you need to be 18 years or older, complete an application http://www.petprojectfoundation.org/dogadoption.pdf, be interviewed and it is strongly recommend all members of your household and any dogs you have at home must be brought in to socialize with the dog you wish to adopt in our play yard, to make the best match for everyone, and be able to verify with your landlord that you may have a pet if you are renting. Understand we reserve the right to deny the adoption of any pet for any reason. Also any additional requirements for the specific pet you are interested in adopting needs to be met. We adopt to the best home, not necessarily the first application turned in.

Dog adoptions are $100 and include a spay or neuter, microchip, current shots, flea treatment if required, "New Owner" folder packed full of helpful information, and one free basic health examination within 5 days of adoption from a veterinarian on our list.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ACORN, a San Clemente Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher for sale in San Clemente, or seeking a Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher puppy from a breeder in San Clemente.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Clemente already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a San Clemente breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher breeders who help with Dachshund/Miniature Pinscher rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Clemente paves the way for another one to be saved.
