Additional adoption info

We first request that a potential adopter complete our Adoption Application and provide pictures of our rescue's common areas in their possible new home. Please note that our Adoption Application is currently not available online. It will be provided via email when we receive the adopter's email address. After reviewing and approving the application and the pictures, we usually arrange to take the dog, if still available, to the adopter's home for a "meet to adopt". If all goes well, we finalize the contract, take care of the adoption fee, and leave the dog with his/her new owner. If it does not work out for any reason, we return with the dog. While our standard adoption fee is $350, this may vary depending upon the condition of the rescue when they come to us and what needs to be done to get them ready for adoption. As we are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we will issue to the adopter a tax-deductible receipt for the entire amount paid. We only accept payments in cash, no exceptions. As we always try to find "the right home" for our rescues, we may require references.

About A Helping Hand For A Paw In Need

We are a new rescue organization based in San Diego, California. Our team is comprised solely of volunteers and, as most of our rescues are in foster homes, we do not have a central facility where one can go to view the animals. We rely on adoption fees and donations to fund our rescue efforts. As a 501(c)(3), we will provide tax deductible receipts for donations to those that require them. We appreciate any and all donations, including food, blankets, clothes, carriers, and/or money.
