Dogs for Adoption

Some dogs, no matter how much we love them, are not adopted due to unique circumstances. In these rare cases, it doesn't matter how much  time, effort, or money we invest in trainers, behavioralists, or veterinarian care. 

Dogs with sever behavior issues (due to abuse, trauma, or genetics) and elderly dogs with sever medical issues are very difficult to find homes for. Very few families have the time, skills, money, and devotion to care for dogs with special needs (behavioral or medical). So, what's next for these dogs who have been left behind?

The Last Chance Dog Ranch, a 501c3 organization owned and solely operated by Terry and Joe Burns, has taken in a number of dogs who have been deemed "unadoptable". For Terry and Joe, life on the ranch begins at 4am. Every day consists of caring for nearly a dozen dogs, including administering medications, feedings, walks, and other activities. The work doesn't stop until the sun sets. It truly is a selfless labor of love. 

What does all of this have to do with Paws? Since 2007, Paws Rescue has found homes for over 400 homeless dogs during one of the worst recessions in history. Now, we are focusing on helping dogs that were left behind. We are excited to include the Last Chance Dog Ranch i our fundraising campaigns, and hope that our support can help Terry and Joe continue to care for the pups in their care. 

We are proud to sponsor the "Adopt-A-Pet" Segment on Cox Channel 3's "So-Cal Safari"! Check our our video on how Paws Rescue came to be!


Looking for a new best friend?

Check out the sweet dogs available for adoption at Paws. We rescue out of local kill shelters to give these dogs a second chance at life. We also work in partnership with the Pet Project Foundation and Last Chance Dog Ranch.

If you are interested in adopting any of our sweet pups, meet them in person at their specified location and fill out an application, email us at infosc@pawspetresorts.com, or call us at (800) 964-7297 if you would like more information. 

We love helping dogs in need; it's a big part of what we do and what makes us who we are. We care deeply for the lives of these amazing animals and do everything in our power to help them. Here is a story of Jelly Bean, one of our past Paws Rescues, and a video of Bo, a Golden Puppy that that came to us needing major surgery, as an example of the dedication we have to help our rescues stay healthy and find their forever homes!
