Baja Animal Sanctuary's adoption process

Additional adoption info

All potential adopters are carefully screened through our adoption process:

· If you're interested in an animal, we'll ask that you fill out an adoption application, which we will review to ensure you and the dog you are interested in adopting are a good match.

· An adoption fee is required and you must sign the Foster Contract, which ensures that if, for any reason, you are unable to keep the dog, he/she to be returned to the Baja Animal Sanctuary only.

· Any additional donation would be greatly appreciated, and this portion will be tax-deductible. The donation goes to pay for all of the other animals in our care, many of which come to us with injuries or medical conditions that require treatment. The Baja Animal Sanctuary survives solely on donations and it is for this reason that the adoption fee is nonnegotiable.

· The Baja Animal Sanctuary reserves the right to cancel the adoption process at any time if the home situation or adoptive family has been misrepresented, if certain information was withheld, or if the dog is determined to be a better match with another family.

· All dog adoptions start out with a 2 week foster period, followed by permanent adoption.

· You will be asked to submit to a "home visit" to determine the level of safety and adequacy of the area for the dog.

For cat adoptions contact Kathleen Paymard at kpaymard@cox.net. Our cats can be seen at the Love a Pet Cattery in the PetSmart store in Vista, California.

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.
