Where can I Adopt?
Well, right here at Pacific Coast Dog Rescue is the obvious choice!

Other suggestions:

1. Check out your local city and county animal shelters where animals have limited time and space.

2. Most of the larger and more enlightened pet supply stores don’t sell dogs and cats at all. Instead, they partner with the humane community in promoting pet adoptions.

Many animal rescue organizations hold a regular adoption day. Pacific Coast Dog Rescue hosts an adoption on Saturdays but we can set up appointments and introductions 7 days a week. Contact us to find out more info.

3. Search for a dog or cat from a local rescue group by visiting "Adopt A Pet" or "PetFinder".

As much as 30% of the dogs at shelters are pure-breed, so if you have your heart set on a Jack Russell, a German shepherd, or a fluffy Persian cat, you can adopt one through a breed rescue organization by doing a search for breed. You can also search by age, and location.

4. If you adopt a young adult or older pet, you can avoid many of the domestic hassles related to house-training and teething. Puppies and kittens are cute, but they require lots of attention, training, patience and newspapers!

An older dog might fit in better with your loyal old Labrador than a rambunctious torpedo of a puppy. Kittens are easier than puppies, but you may also want to consider the benefits of an adult kitty, who has already gone through the precocious kitten stage.
So, there are plenty of good reasons to adopt your next pet, but probably the best reason to adopt a dog or cat is that you just might meet your best friend.
