About Shamrock Rescue Foundation

Shamrock Rescue Foundation saves dogs and other animals who are in danger of being put to death in public shelters. These animals often have little to no hope of a better life, or of a life, period. Without our intervention, many animals now living happy lives with loving families would not have had a chance. We do not discriminate as to breed, size or age. We are advocates for all animals who cannot be advocates for themselves. Our dogs are in foster homes or boarded until permanent homes can be found for them.

All of our animals are examined by a veterinarian as soon as possible after we get them. Blood work is performed to ensure that they are healthy, or if they aren't, how we can get them healthy. If health care is necessary, we provide it. All are microchipped, spayed and neutered.

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Anaheim, CA.

Support adoption and rescue. Why go to a dog breeder, cat breeder or pet store to buy a dog or buy a cat when you can adopt?

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life.

What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?

When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.

So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
