Posted Breed: Boxer / Catahoula Leopard Dog / Mixed (short coat). ADOPTION FEE WAIVED! Rosie is about 3 1/2 years old and an American Bully mix. She came to us emaciated, unable to walk, with her newborn puppies. Since coming into her foster home, she has blossomed into a wonderful girl. She is almost completely potty trained, she knows basic commands and corrects well, loves to snuggle and just wants to be near her person all day every day. She would do best in a home with submissive dogs and possible small dogs as she tends to correct behaviors she does not feel are appropriate. She may be ok with dog savvy cats as well. Rosie is be spayed, microchipped, and up to date on her vaccines. You can find out more about our adoption process and apply online at: http://recycledpetsnorcal.org/adoption-process/

If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier-Labrador Retriever Mix
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Sacramento, CA
      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Sacramento- Oliver is an old man. The shelter said 8, I think they are not close and he is closer to 12. He is looking for a final home, a retirement home to spend his last few weeks, months, years in. He was rescued from Yolo County Animal Services Shelter, and had some small lumps and a bad tooth removed. He likes soft treats and eats canned food (h e apparently knows we are suckers). He lives with dogs, cats and a small child and he is pretty easy going. He is on a special senior diet for his kidneys. Oliver has been a great addition to his foster home and quickly showed his foster family that nothing can get him down. He has a very upbeat personality and is happy to "talk" to you throughout the day. He has shown to be great with large dogs and is doing good with cats. He is a little unsure of strange dogs on leash but is fine after proper intros. He is house trained and is crate trained (although he would rather be cuddling on the couch!). He seems to have bad hearing but can hear some things. This old guy hopes there is someone out there who thinks that #puppiesaredicks and can see how amazing adoption a senior dog is. Plus his ADOPTION FEE IS WAIVED! If you have a big heart, you can fill out our application online at: http://recycledpetsnorcal.org/adoption-process/

Unfortunately, there was a living situation change and she is back with us. Rosa has lived with small children, but she is nervous, so ideally she should be with older children if any. She is just a bit shy, but other than that is great, she just needs a home where they will give her a bit of time to open up and trust you. She is good with other animal as well. She has been crate trained and is ready to find her real FUREVER home now.

      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Senior
      Location: Sacramento, CA
      Posted Breed: Chihuahua / Mixed (short coat). Sacramento- Macho is a cute 9 year old chihuahua who is ready for a family of his own. He may be older and toothless, but this guy has some spunk too. You can see, even at about 6 pounds, he can carry half his weight in squeaker dog toys! He is good with dogs, cats and people. He was adopted, but his human had serious medical issues unfortunately so he is back with us. We had bloodwork and dental done earlier this year as well. He is looking for a lap to hang out on- maybe a squeaker toy or two- and some love. If you are looking for a tiny companion, he might be the one!

      Breed: Poodle (Miniature)-Unknown Mix
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Sacramento, CA
      Posted Breed: Terrier / Poodle (Miniature) / Mixed (medium coat). Sacramento- Autumn is a little on the chubby side, but she has lost weight, thanks to her new exercise plan (thanks to her awesome fosters walking her). She was a breeding machine, and we know how babies can ruin your body, but she kept popping out babies. She was taken from a hoarder with lots of other dogs, but she got a short hair do ( #shorthairdontcare ) and is going to continue to walk off t he pounds. She is about 18 pounds right now, and 15 pounds would be a good weight for her. She is 5-6 years old, and she appears to be a Mogwai mix (those ears) with maybe a poodle? I don't know what she is, but she sure is sweet. She lives with dogs, and children and I think she would be happy in about any home. If you are looking for a calm and easy going companion, she would be great for you! She is spayed, microchipped, heartworm tested, up to date on vaccines and ready for her forever home.

      Posted Breed: American Staffordshire Terrier / Mixed (short coat). Sacramento - Poppy came from Yolo County Animal Services Shelter and is approximately 3 years old and weighing 50 pounds. Poppy was left in someone's trailer i n a trailer park in rural Yolo Co., and her owner never came for her. Poppy is a happy, active, athletic girl. She loves to chase toys and do zoomies around the yard, and lean into you for pets when she's done. Every time I take her out of her kennel, she quickly does her business, then bounds joyfully around the yard, then comes sprinting back to me, asking me to play with bouncing play bows. She's pretty darn cute. Like most dogs in the shelter, Poppy was getting frustrated. She is not in a foster home with other dogs. We are evaluating her on her behaviors and will update as needed. She is spayed, microchipped and up to date on vaccines. You can find our process and apply online at: http://recycledpetsnorcal.org/adoption-process/ Adoption fee: $200
