paw PET ADOPTION POLICY

Thank you for choosing Pet Adoption Fund, the largest non-profit, no-kill animal rescue organization in Southern California. All of our adoptable pets are available for viewing Tues. to Sun., 1:00-5:00 p.m., at our facility located at 7507 Deering Ave. Canoga Park, CA 91303. No appointment needed.

arrow Come visit in person with the entire family, including your current dog (altered dogs only) if one, so we may test the dogs together for compatibility. We also need to make sure that our dog is comfortable with the other members of you family, and is a good fit for your lifestyle.

arrow Please allow at least one hour to spend at our facility. You will be asked to complete an adoption application before viewing our dogs, no exceptions. Weekends are busy for us, so we appreciate your patience.

arrow You must be over the age of 21 to complete our adoption application & contract. A valid California ID is required for all adoptions.

arrow All of our pets are spayed or neutered, vaccinated (rabies if specified), and micro-chipped. All pets are provided with a personalized tag and collar.

arrow Please bring your own carrier for cats/kittens/puppies.

arrow We are placing what we believe to be a healthy pet. If the situation proves to be otherwise, we will assist with the health care, provided through our own veterinarian, for the first 30 days after adoption, and ONLY for a condition that the animal had already contracted before he/she left our facility.

arrow Most of our dogs and cats come from rescue situations. We do our very best (with the help of our veterinarians) to determine age, breed, medical issues, and asses behavior. We do not intentionally withhold information, as it serves no purpose but cause heartache and emotional pain to all involved when the animal is returned.

arrow If the adoption does not work out for any reason, we ask that the animal be returned ONLY to Pet Adoption Fund, or any time in the future. We also reserve the right to retrieve the animal at any time for adoption contract violations.

arrow Our adoption fees vary based on age, breed, size. We support our non-profit, no-kill facility from the funds generated by the adoption donations, and every donation is 100% tax deductible.

arrow Our adoptions are always subject to approval and a home-check; and we do reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who does not meet our adoption policy standards.

arrow We show our dogs and cats on first come first serve basis. Phone or email inquiry about an animal does not guarantee availability.

arrow The decision to add a new member to your family is of a great one, and comes with even greater responsibility. It is a lifelong commitment that can not be taken lightly. We hope you have taken the time to educate yourself about responsible pet ownership; and please do visit us when you are ready to welcome a new four legged friend into your life. Just stop by our kennel during our business hours, and we'll be happy to find you your best match.

We look forward to seeing you soon. search dogs linksearch cats link
