Additional adoption info

We require a 2 week foster period prior to adoption to ensure it's a good fit for you and the dog.

About Friends of SNAP

SNAP foster home volunteers provided a life-line to hundreds of homeless dogs who needed to be exited from tax supported shelters because they had needs that couldn’t be handled at the shelter (broken bones, kennel stress, eye surgeries, complicated dental procedures, skin disorders, etc.) or needed a warm, caring home for recovery from illness or injury.

Adopt a Pet is the easiest way for you to search for a new pet in Encinitas (San Diego), 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.
