Adopt a Dog or Cat in California

Check out our available and soon-to-be-ready Wagging Dogs and Cats! If you’re interested in meeting and possibly adopting one of our Orphans, our adoption procedure includes:

  • completed WDR Dog/Puppy or Cat/Kitten Adoption Application
  • phone interview
  • home visit
  • adoption fee & contract

If you have other pets in your home, we’ll manage doggie introductions to ensure that everyone begins things on the right paw. We know you’ll be excited to meet your potential new family member and promise to do our best to shorten the timeline. Please remember that our entire team is all volunteer and we rescue around our family and work schedules. We’re grateful for your understanding and patience and hope you’ll appreciate our thoroughness with the care and placement of our rescued family members.

All of our Wagging Dogs and Cats are spayed/neutered, current on vaccinations, microchipped, house broken (or litter box trained) and in most cases crate trained. Post adoption support is available for the life of your Wagging Dog or Cat.
