Dogs for Adoption

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 California Labs and More.


If you are interested in adopting any of these 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 have more pictures of our rescues available on our Facebook!




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!

                                                     





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!
