Dogs for Adoption

Looking for a new best friend?

Check out the sweet dogs available for adoption at Paws. We rescue out of the 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, or call Paws at (800) 964-7297 if you would like more information. 

We have more pictures of our rescues available on our Facebook!

Meet Maddy! She's a 65lb Lab mix approximately 2 years old. She is such a love-bug! She has never met a stranger, loves all people, and is sure to greet you with a very wiggly butt and happy wagging tail. This pretty girl is happiest being by  your side. She loves getting attention, going for walks, and yummy treats :) Come meet Maddy today and fall in love!
