Dog Adoption Application

Thank you for your interest in submitting an adoption application to California Animal Shelter Friends, Inc.


Once you submit an application it will be reviewed within the following 12-48 hours.


If your application is approved you will be notified of its approval by e-mail and our volunteers will contact you to set up a time for you to meet the animal(s) you are interested in adopting.


Please review the following information:


1.  California Animal Shelter Friends, Inc. is a PRIVATE non-profit rescue organization. 


We are NOT a public animal shelter.  Potential adopters are invited to meet the animals in our care by APPOINTMENT ONLY.  We DO NOT have public hours. 


Please DO NOT come to our adoption facility unless you have an appointment.  Potential adopters who arrive without an approved application and an appointment will not be allowed to adopt an animal.


2.  Our volunteers use e-mail and the internet to coordinate adoptions.  Please expect responses to you application or questions via e-mail and check it frequently in the days following the submission of an adoption application.


3.  Please note that animals seen on our site and listed as available for adoption are ready to go to their new homes at the time they are listed or within 7 days of that listing (some are awaiting spay/neuter surgery).  If you are not interested in adopting an animal within the next week please wait and submit an adoption application when you are interested in adopting an animal.


4.  If your adoption application is approved and an appointment is scheduled for you to come and meet the animal(s) you are interested in please do be prepared to adopt the animal.  Please bring your adoption fee in cash or check (we do not accept credit cards) and be prepared to transport your new animal home.  We recommend you bring a small carrier if you are interested in adopting a cat or kitten and consider bringing an appropriately sized crate if you are interested in adopting a dog or puppy.


Thank you again for your interest in adopting and we look forward to meeting you and having you meet the dog or puppy you are interested in adopting,


California Animal Shelter Friends, Inc.
