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).

Hello my name is Princess and I'm a pawsitively sweet and affectionate Staffordshire Bull Terrier mix that would love to go home with you!

Although I've lived with other pets, ideally I'd like to try being an only dog. I listen well and know my basic commands, but I could probably use a refresher as I get very excited.

Carter
Carter is a 7-year-old, 75-pound blind pit bull looking for a home as special as he is. Adopted from a shelter, he was recently returned when his family decided having a blind dog was too much work. Carter adores people but is especially fond of women. His great goal in life is convincing you to rub his belly! Carter will wag his tail and say hi to anyone who approaches. Barking is something he directs at squirrels - he knows when they're around! Carter would like a person who does not get flustered when he runs into things. Carter is house trained and knows sit, although his preferred body position is curled up in his bed. Unable to see important visual cues and unable to give them, Carter sometimes flubs social interactions with other dogs which can lead to scuffles.

Grasshopper
Grasshopper is a 7-year-old, 5 pound Chihuahua. He is the sweetest little guy, but he does stress out a bit in public.

He is very quiet and fits in easily with other dogs, and we expect, cats too. He does have a slightly hunched back, and although xrays cannot determine anything clinical, we suspect there is some mild neurological stuff going on, as his back legs are a little weak and he can be somewhat wobbly, or tip over. He doesn't do well on too many stairs. Grasshopper is deserving of a wonderful home. He is in the care of Motley Zoo rescue in Washington. He has transportation to the Monterey area if he finds a forever home in this area. Grasshopper is not an AFRP dog. for more info email: info@motleyzoo.org or call 206-453-8480.
