If you submit an adoption application, you will be sent an automatic reply confirming the receipt of your application and instructions of the next steps towards the adoption. Some of our applicants happen to receive the confirmation email in their unmonitored mail. Please check regularly the updates and feeds in your email. If you do not receive any confirmation, this means that your application was not successfully submitted and you will need to resubmit your application again. Please submit your application before the site session ends or else all the information filled will be lost.

About PetEmber

Here at PetEmber Animal Rescue, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all animals. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact on all of our endeavors.

PetEmber Rescue is a Non-profit 501(c)3, no-kill volunteer animal rescue organization, serving the InIand Empire, CA. We are a small group of dedicated individuals working towards diminishing the number of animals in the shelters and even on the streets. We are committed to providing all animals that come into PetEmber animal Rescue the best care possible, while awaiting their Fur-Ever home. While in PetEmber rescue, we provide all animals with appropriate veterinary care as needed. As well as working with each individual pet in assisting them to become very sociable.
The only way to reduce the population of animals in shelters and on the streets is to educate our local community about the importance of spaying/neutering their pets. In doing so, we will break the cycle of reproductions and thus, lower down the number of animals euthanized every year. Together we can make a change and give second chances to the neglected and abused animals.

Come Meet PetEmber's Pets

We are currently not holding any adoption events until October of 2021. ​We will continue to conduct private meets and greets during weekend and weekdays at both our corporate office in San Bernardino, CA and our partnered PetSmart store in Fullerton, CA for the approved applicants (No walk-ins). The administrative office of PetEmber is not a shelter facility. PetEmber is a foster-based animal rescue. We safely transport each individual rescue dog from a foster home to our office or our partnered PetSmart store for the scheduled meet and greet with the approved adopter.
