OUR ADOPTION PROCESS
Save a life. Adopt one of our amazing rescue dogs. Our goal is to find the best possible home for each of our dogs, so we have outlined what you can expect from the adoption process.
We only do local adoptions so we can ensure the home is a perfect fit. Sorry but not out-of-state adoptions permitted.
Also please know that completing an adoption application DOES NOT guarantee an adoption. We have thoroughly evaluated all of our rescued dogs and try very hard to match the right pet with the right person and situation. We reserve the right not to adopt for any reason. Please know that we want the best possible match for the dog and for you and your family.
Not ready to adopt yet? We are always looking for foster homes. If you open your home we can save another life. Learn more about fostering here.
Thanks again for your interest and support in adopting a rescue!
THE STEPS TO ADOPT
GOOD MATCH - based on your application we might recommend a different dog who better fits with your lifestyle and home. We'll work together to find a good match!
ADOPTION FEE - we are an official 501c3 non profit. Every dollar we take in for adoption fees is used to help us save more dogs. Fees are tax deductible and cover: spay/neuter, microchip, vaccinations, flea treatment, deworming, professional evaluation, training, rehab, medical, food and whatever else is needed. Our adoption fees area:
$450 for puppies (up to 1 year)
$350 for adults (1 year+)
HOME VISIT - someone from our team will schedule a home visit where we can see the environment firsthand and provide guidance. We are looking for a clean, safe home.
OVERNIGHT - once a match is made and you have been approved, we'll let you spend some time with the dog in your home to ensure everyone is happy.
LOCAL ADOPTION ONLY - we are located in Southern California and we only adopt to homes within driving distance **no out-of-state adoptions**
