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).

Posted 10-8-19. Simon is a sweet and loving 58-pound pit bull terrier mix that will be 2 years old on Christmas Day, 2019.

He even knows how to do a few tricks! Jack can be a bit anxious around other dogs, so he'll do best as a single dog in the home. He is a very easy dog to care for and can be left alone for up to 8 hours if you work. Can you give this nice dog some love and care while his guardian is away? An allowance for care will be provided. Jack currently lives in Santa Clara, Ca. For more information, please contact Jane at Jane_bj@hotmail.com
Peggy
Posted 5-6-19. Peggy is a 24-pound, 13 year old Cockapoo. She is a little love and her guardian is no longer able to care for her as she had to move into a home that does not allow dogs. She is a very sweet dog once you have gained her trust. Peggy loves to snuggle and be petted by her loving human. Peggy has lived comfortably with other dogs but sometimes prefers her own space. She can be intimidated by strangers so introductions should be slow. Peggy is house trained, walks well on leash, and listens to her person. She is comfortable being home alone but is also good in the car. Peggy is not an AFRP dog. If you'd like to meet her, please contact Jasmine at 831-402-3310 or jmnorouzi@gmail.com

Charlotte
Post renewed 6-4-19. This 10 pound, 2 year old terrier needs a special home. She was trapped as a feral 10 months ago and is now an independent girl who need lots of room to run and explore. She comes indoors when called but still cannot be touched and does not like to be leashed. She is good with other dogs, is not aggressive but is fearful of humans and noise. She would be best on a large property were she can live independently but come indoors at night and in bad weather. She has all her shots, is spayed, and is currently in a foster home with South County Animal Rescue (SCAR). Text Lou at (831) 970-8878.
Bochy
Post renewed 6-4-19. Bochy is a 11-month-old Chihuahua mix pup looking for a loving home. He was part of a group of four dogs that were abandoned at the Hollister Airport Dog Park in the spring. The male perpetrator was caught in the act, but sped away in a vehicle. Bochy, ( named after the Giants baseball manager) has been in a foster home since May. He has come out of his shell, but is very much afraid of tall men with loud voices, he will run and hide in his crate at the very sight and sound, but is fine with shorter men with softer voice. Bochy is very good with other dogs, and children, and loves the ladies. He is house trained, crate trained and is very healthy. He is active, loves to run and play. He weighs 7-9 lbs. We'd love for Bochy to get a forever home, he deserves, like all the rescue dogs do. Bochy is not an AFRP dog and is in the care of All Creatures Great and Small of Hollister.

Achilles
Post renewed 6-4-19. Achilles is an 9 year old, 70lb cattle dog mix. He has a gentle, kind, shy soul but has unfortunately been through many homes recently through no fault of his own. Because of this and his breed mix, Achilles will always be slow to warm up to new people but is interested and does bond with you after just a few days. He will reward you with a little happy dance and some "stump-waggin'" whenever he sees you! All this guy really needs is a comfy corner spot in a stable quiet home environment again! Achilles is fully housebroken, crate-trained, treat motivated, good on leash, tolerant of other dogs, and a quiet companion. He just wants to be near his people again so would be happiest in a home with a full-time adult caretaker. As a shy dog, Achilles is not suitable for a noisy, busy environment and is afraid of most children. He's looking for a retired couple to follow around again for exercise and some comfy dog beds for rest. Achilles is not an AFRP dog. Please contact Diana at (510) 333-4420 or theperfectdogrescue@gmail.com
