Breed Specific Rescues in California

Adoption is one of the most humane things we can do as pet owners and animal lovers.

However, one of the things we hear often from people who decide to buy from a breeder is:

I want a purebred,” or, “I’ve had such a good experience with “X” breed, I can’t imagine having any other type of dog.”

We understand, and we’re here to tell you:

YOU CAN RESCUE ANY KIND OF PUP UNDER THE SUN !

There are literally HUNDREDS of breed-specific rescues that specialize in every breed imaginable, from Keeshonds to Otterhounds to Xoloitzcuintles.

Below is a list of breed-specific rescues in California, organized alphabetically by breed name.

Preference towards a breed or desire for a designer dog should never be a deciding factor when trying to decide between adopting or buying.

Adopting a pet, instead of buying one, ensures that an animal who’s already out there, waiting in a shelter or rescue for a loving home, finally gets the best thing she could ever ask for – a loving and happy life.

Adopting a rescue dog also helps the rescue or shelter organization you adopt from continue its work rescuing and caring for animals in need.
