Adopting a Friend

 In an effort to find just the right companion animal for a prospective adopter, our adoption process includes an Adoption Application, a Home Visit and an Adoption Contract and Fee.


  • Our adoption fee is $125 and goes directly into our fund at High Desert Community Foundation. The fees are used to pay vet bills incurred by spaying, neutering, vaccinating and treating any conditions necessary for all our pets. Fees for dogs identified as Status: Urgent are negotiable because these animals need to be placed as soon as possible.
  • We most often only adopt to homes in southern California. We introduce qualified prospective adopters to the pet at its foster home here in the Apple Valley area.
  • Our Adoption Application is easily filled out and submitted online.

You can see our Animals for Adoption here.
