AFRP Dogs Looking for Homes - Call (831) 333-0722 if you are interested

AFRP's dogs are cared for in foster homes. If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please call or email first before coming down to the adoption center. On any given day we have 5 to 10 dogs at the center, not ALL of our dogs are on site.

In order to ensure that we make the best match for a dog with a new family, potential adopters are required to go through an interview process, fill out an application, and have a home check done by one of our volunteers. We do not do same day adoptions. After meeting one of our dogs, it might take up to a week before the adoption process is complete and the dog goes home with you.

Please call (831) 333-0722 or email info@animalfriendsrescue.org if you are interested in adopting an AFRP dog and we will have the foster volunteer contact you directly.

AFRP only adopts out dogs that have been spayed/neutered. The adoption fee is $200-$300. The adoption fee helps to cover the cost of the care the animal has received, including spay/neuter, vaccines, microchipping, deworming, and flea treatment. Adopters are encouraged to take their new AFRP dog to one of our participating vets for a free wellness check (see list of participating vets).

Zoe

Zoe is a special 2-year-old, 10-pound Chihuahua mix who came to us from the Monterey County Shelter after coming in as an injured stray. At some point in her life she suffered an injury to her hind leg that went untreated, and as a result it is fused into an extended position - she cannot bend it. Despite her challenges, Zoe gets around just fine and can even climb stairs. She's a sweet, quiet and easygoing dog who loves spending time on your lap or burrowed in a nest of blankets. She is crate trained and potty trained, though does have some slight incontinence problems related to her previous injury to her hind end. She is fine when taken outside often, and also tolerates a doggie diaper. Zoe can't really go for walks, but would love to be carried with you in a doggie pouch. Click here for Zoe's video.

Brownie can live with other dogs and cats too, but she really wants to be the center of attention and could be very happy as a spoiled "only child." Her age is estimated to be somewhere around 8 years. Brownie's adoption fee of $150 has been sponsored by an AFRP supporter in hopes of helping her find her forever home.

Princess
Hello my name is Princess and I'm a positively sweet and affectionate Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix that would love to go home with you! Unofficially I am 9 1/2 years old, 43 lbs, current on my vaccinations, flea prevention, and spayed. Don't let my age fool you. I'm very energetic and would make an ideal hiking or walking buddy. Not only do I enjoy a bit of exercise, but I love car rides too. I'm great with kids and used to live with children that were 15 mo and 11yrs old. Although I've lived with other pets and currently live with two cats, I'd like to try being an only dog. I listen well and know my basic commands, but sometimes I can forget when I get very excited. I'm housebroken and usually stay inside. I don't really like crates, but I love a comfy couch. I'd settle for a warm blanket too. My previous owners moved to where they could not take me, but I'm very friendly towards people and I guarantee my favorite place will be sitting right next to you showering you with kisses. Princess is not an AFRP dog and is located in Fremont, CA. Please contact Genelle at 719-310-9304 or genelle_chapman_98@yahoo.com
