Areas The Perfect Dog Serves

The Perfect Dog, dedicated to rescuing wonderful homeless or abandoned dogs from over-crowded shelters, is an organization serving the southern Bay Area. The Perfect Dog places dogs in need into temporary foster homes, where they are socialized, trained, cleaned, and prepared for adoption. Ultimately, The Perfect Dog strives to greatly reduce the number of unwanted dogs euthanized in shelters simply due to over-crowding or being deemed unadoptable.

The Perfect Dog's Adoption Process


Adoption Fee
Adult Dogs and Puppies – $400
Chihuahuas and Pit Bulls – $250
Senior Dogs (10+) – $150
Adoption fees are non-refundable after 7 days.
The adoption fee covers: spay/neuter, vaccinations, microchip, cost of transport, food, supplies, and any other medical costs.


1) Fill out and submit the Adoption Application.

2) Come out to meet the dog(s). Check the home page for news/events for upcoming mobile adoptions. If you are interested in a particular dog, note so on the application form and a representative will be in touch with you shortly.

3) Come prepared. In case you fall in love with your new dog on the spot, we are currently accepting cash or checks only. Also, it is always a good idea to have basic supplies ready at home before you adopt a dog, such as food bowls, a crate or bed, etc.

4) Sign the adoption contract with a representative.

5) Take your new dog home! :)

About The Perfect Dog

What is “the perfect dog”?

The Perfect Dog rescues the “IMperfect” dogs who have simply been overlooked at the shelter or who have special medical or behavioral issues which puts them at risk of euthanasia, and finds them the perfect homes. We never discriminate. If there is a dog in need, it doesn’t matter its age, breed, condition, history, etc. If it needs help, we will do what it takes to find a way to help the dog. We believe in giving every dog a chance and we believe there is the right home for every dog out there.
