We review all applications for each dog and identify one best match to meet him/her.
Adoption appointments are scheduled for Saturdays at the Petsmart of Yorba Linda (5521 Mirage St.) from 1-5 PM.
I became involved in animal rescue because of the overwhelming number of stray animals I observe in less affluent areas of Southern California. We vet all of the dogs found as strays, provide rehabilitation, socialization and training - 500 a year! We march to the beat of a fast drummer and take great pride in the dedication of those who work together to place these precious dogs in the right home, not just any home.
Poochmatch is a small rescue group with half-a dozen volunteers. Since our founding in 2006, we have done over 3,700 dog adoptions. With over 500 in 2018 alone.
We do not have a secretary - we are completely volunteer-based and so we respond to emails, calls and voicemails as quickly as possible. We'd love to have more assistance. We need help administratively from individuals with computers, digital cameras and marketing skills. We also need volunteers for our Saturday events, individuals 18 years or older, to help walk our dogs, maintain clean crates and provide them with fresh water for them. Please note we do not accept volunteers who treat our events as a hang-out and are generally distracted while tending the dogs - that is a disaster waiting to happen. We also do not accept volunteers who treat the event as a petting zoo and "hog" dogs. While we do appreciate and encourage that our volunteers interact with our dogs it is our one day a week to find them a forever home and we also want potential adopters to be able to interact with them. If you are interested in adopting, please send us an email at email@example.com to make sure that we will be holding an event on the Saturday you are interested in volunteering. We could really use dedicated volunteers too! Please see http://poochmatch.com/volunteer.html for more information.
Adoption events are held every Saturday at Petsmart in Yorba Linda (Savi Ranch) 5521 Mirage Street from 1-5 PM. While we do accept walk-up applications please understand that we do give preference to those who have already completed the adoption application and have been approved prior to the event. To confirm we will be holding an adoption event, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
