My story

Meet Faith!

This beauty is quite shy and will need a home who understands that she will take time to warm up. Faith would do well in a calm home that will let her lounge and be the queen that she is.

Faith is good with large dogs with a similar energy level that just want to hang out together. Faith is not good with small dogs or cats or children.

MEDICAL: Both stifles have torn ligaments from a previous injury that have since healed, however arthritis can occur and intermittent limping due to discomfort. She may need non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) in the future.

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

ADOPTION The Compassionate Choice. Choosing to adopt an animal rather than buying from a breeder or pet shop is the easiest and best thing you can do to help reduce the number of unwanted pets. Shelters across the country are filled with wonderful dogs and cats looking for safe, loving homes. Each and every one of them deserves to be loved. Bringing a new animal into your home is a big decision. We ask all potential adopters or "guardians" to complete a comprehensive questionnaire and then meet with one of our trained adoption counselors who will help find the right pet for your lifestyle. Because your new pet is an important part of your family, we encourage you to bring ALL family members in to meet him or her, including your dog(s) if you are considering adopting one of shelter dogs. The adoption fees are $50-$100 for a cat and $100-$180 for a dog. This low fee includes spay/neuter, vaccinations, a registered micro-chip, and a wellness check.

More about this shelter

The Palm Springs Animal Shelter is an open-admission municipal shelter serving the City of Palm Springs. The shelter is operated by Friends of the Palm Springs Animal Shelter, a non-profit organization dedicated to building a community responsible for pet stewardship and humane treatment of animals. The public/private partnership has created a compassionate and progressive shelter that serves as safe haven for both highly adoptable animals as well as those who require behavioral training or medical treatment before they can be adopted into loving homes.

Although we spend time with each animal to prepare it for adoption, we cannot be sure how a pet with behave with other pets or with children outside of the shelter.
