Q: How do I know which dog is right for me?
A: We will help you determine which of our dogs have the personality and behavior characteristics which will match and adapt most readily to your lifestyle by reviewing your adoption application.

Q: How much does it cost to adopt a dog from Friends For Pets?
The adoption donation is $350 for an adult dog, $400 for a dog under one year and $500 for a purebred dog under 6 months. This amount partially covers the animals costs of altering, vaccinations, health guarantee, and board for the time that he or she has been with us. Additional donations will help pay for all of the dogs care before you adopted him and the many other dogs that we take in and nurse back to health.

Q: Are donations tax-deductable?

Q: What is your return policy?
If a dog is returned within 4 weeks, and the dog is in the same or better condition, 50% of the donation will be refunded.

Q: Do you have any puppies for adoption?
Puppies are seldom available. If you wish to have a dog younger than 6 months and are willing to wait 6 months to a year, we will add your name to our waiting list. If you prefer not to wait we will be glad to refer you to reputable breeders. Please do not buy from a pet store, champion-bred puppies are less expensive and far healthier than the puppy-mill animals that are available in stores.

Q: How many dogs do you have for adoption?
At any given time, we have over 50 dogs available for adoption.

Q: How did you ever come upon so many wonderful dogs?
Sad to say, we find most of our dogs abandoned at shelters and on the streets. These beautiful dogs have often been neglected or treated poorly and must be nursed back to health before we can make them available for adoption. Most were bought at pet stores as puppies, never trained by their owners, neglected, beat and starved before escaping or being abandoned by these horrible owners.

Q: How much does it cost to you to care for one of your dogs?
From the time we rescue a dog until placing it with a new loving family, it costs us around $200 a week. Most dogs remain in our facility for 10 weeks for a total cost of $2,000. We ask for a donation upon adoption to help defray these costs. Any additional donations are greatly appreciated.

Q: What types of dogs do you have available for adoption?
We rescue sporting breed dogs (Weimaraners, Golden Retrievers, Dalmatians, Pointers, & Labs) who are abandoned, mistreated, neglected, or left in pounds throughout California and make them available for adoption to loving families like yours.

Q: Can I adopt more than one dog at a time?
It depends on your home situation but some dogs already have best friends at our rescue facility and we encourage families who are interested in one to adopt both so that they can stay together.

Q: When can I meet the dogs you have available for adoption?
You can get a sneak preview of some of the dogs we have available right now by viewing our online directory. Next, fill out our adoption application and volunteer to come walk some dogs this Sunday.
