Who We Are
Incorporated in 1983 in the state of California, Pet Adoption Fund (PAF) is proud to be an all breed, private, non-profit, no-kill, Cat & Dog rescue organization and adoption center, located in the city of Canoga Park, Los Angeles county, CA.
PAF is staffed primarily by volunteers, and exists solely on donations. Since inception, PAF has helped shelter, rehabilitate, and find happy homes for the thousands of dogs and cats rescued from high kill shelters, and from owners who could no longer care for their companion animals.
All of the dogs and cats in our care are spayed or neutered, bathed, microchipped and vaccinated before being placed in their adoptive new homes.
Our accomplishments over the years speak volumes, and we contribute our years of success to our highly devoted and loyal supporters and committed volunteers.
Rescue homeless dogs and cats from city & county shelters, as well as dogs and cats who are abandoned, and those whose guardians can no longer care for them.
Place the homeless dogs and cats we rescue in loving, adoptive, forever homes.
Educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering companion animals in order to reduce the overpopulation of unwanted dogs and cats in our communities.
Pet Adoption Fund takes pride in the safe, healthy and rehabilitative environment we provide for the homeless animals in our care.
All of our dogs and cats receive a nutritious diet, walks, bathing & grooming, and quality time with shelter workers and volunteers. Many animals arrive at the PAF facility in a state of trauma - abused, neglected and sometimes injured. We at PAF ensure that these dogs and cats receive the medical care and rehabilitation they need to recover and have a fair chance at adoption.
PAF is a true no-kill shelter. Every dog and cat in our care, no matter the behavior, will have as much time and space needed until a suitable forever home can be found. Now that's a promise!
As part of our commitment to our rescued furry family, we have a lifetime return policy in place for all the dogs and cats adopted from PAF. We understand life happens, situations change, so PAF will always accept returns no matter how old, however long, or for whatever reason.
