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).

She will need to be kept on flea preventative and also an inexpensive medication for her thyroid. House trained and crate trained, Brownie will be a lovely addition to a quiet, Chihuahua-loving home.

Penny
My name is Penny I'm a 3-year-old pit bull. As you can tell from my picture, I like to think that I'm human. I sit like a human and even try to talk like one. I am house broken and know some cool tricks! I know how to sit, roll over, lay-down, shake your hand, stay, jump, stare at my treat until you give me the "ok" to eat it and I will gently take the food from your mouth if you allow me to. I weigh 45 pounds and most of it is lean muscle. I love to lay in the sun and bark at random things that fly by. I will love you forever if you spray a water hose at me so that I can chomp away at the water. I am spayed and enjoy a good play buddy. Please take me home so that I can love you too :) Penny is not an AFRP dog and currently lives in Los Banos. For more information please call 408-768-1171 or email Ilinka at Ilinka4@hotmail.com

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. If you have a laid-back, older dog who can tolerate a large dog bumping into him or her, Carter might appreciate the companionship. But really, Carter just really loves people. Carter is not an AFRP dog. For more info please email e-mail: dogward4 him@yahoo.com or visit www.capeanimals.org
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. At home however, he is not shy and is very quick to make friends with anyone who many be sitting nearby. He will also go play by himself, and toss a toy around, or go lay down. 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.
