Carl's Story...
Meet Carl, he's 6 years old and 10 pounds. He’s a very sweet Maltese who apparently was someone’s special pet as he is housebroken, trained to use a doggie doggy door, and doesn’t mind being brushed or carried around. He unfortunately ended up in a high kill shelter just north of San Diego. We just couldn’t let this little guy be put down without giving him another chance at a good life. Due to a terrible dental disease he had to have all his teeth pulled, but that won’t stop him from making a great companion. Carl is neutered, his shots are up to date, is potty and leash trained, and with a new outlook on life will provide years of love. If you would like to meet Carl, please complete an application found at our web site and his foster mom will give you a call. You can also check out our calendar of events on the web site to see where our next adoption event will be to meet Carl in person.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Carl, a San Diego Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese for sale in San Diego, or seeking a Maltese dog from a breeder in San Diego.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in San Diego 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 Diego 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 Maltese breeders who help with Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in San Diego paves the way for another one to be saved.
