Dirty Little Paws Rescue's Adoption Process

1. Submit Application

Our fist step can either be submit an application or come into the store & meet the pet, then submit application depending on circumstances.

2. Interview

We discuss the pet, personality, background and ask questions to ensure it could be a good fir for both the potential adopters and the pet.

3. Meet the Pet

4. Home Check

5. Approve Application

6. Sign Adoption Contract

7. Pay Fee

Once the adoption is approved and contract signed, the adoption fee is paid and your new little one goes home with you!

Our pet adoption process is fairly straightforward as outlined above. Basically, our potential adopters can contact us regarding pets they may be interested in, or can meet our pets by coming into one of our Petsmart or Petco store locations in the Oceanside/Vista,CA area. We will discuss the pet they're interested in, have them fill out an adoption application and ask some questions around that. If we feel the pet is a fit for the adopter we will then have them complete an adoption agreement perform a home check and collect the adoption fee. We will then deliver the brand new pet to their Happy Forever Home!

About Dirty Little Paws Rescue

Dirty Little Paws is a new non-profit rescue in Southern California. We rescue from kill shelters and from the street, manage feral colonies, and promote TNR (trap, neuter, release).
Our mission is to save the lives of as many cats as possible. We respond to daily emergencies,
fully vet each cat, release ferals back into their colonies, rehabilitate some, make sick cats well, hold adoption fairs, educate the public, and place a strong emphasis
on sourcing donations through events & fundraisers so that this work may continue.
