Adoptable Pets in California
CageFree K-9 Rescue Foundation is a 501c3 non-profit no-kill all-breed dog rescue group located in Los Angeles. We're dedicated to finding great homes for great dogs. The majority of our rescues come from the many Los Angeles animal shelters and are screened for temperament and sociability. We focus on pulling "red-listed" dogs before they are euthanized by high-kill local shelters. We ensure that each and every dog in our care receives the medical attention and emotional support they need until they are placed with their new forever family! All of our dogs are vaccinated, microchipped and spayed/neutered prior to placement. Spay and neuter surgeries for our rescue dogs are generously donated by California Animal Hospital.

Do you need to find a loving home for your pet?

No-kill shelters do wonderful work, but as a result, are often inundated with pet surrenders. In the unfortunate scenario that you have to find a new home for your pet, please read through the rehoming solution and articles on this page before contacting the shelter.

1. Feral Cat TNR Program

Many communities are embracing Trap, Neuter, Release programs (TNR) to improve animal welfare, reduce death rates, and meet obligations to public welfare.

2. High-Volume, Low-Cost Spay/Neuter

Low cost, high volume spay/neuter will quickly lead to fewer animals entering the shelter system, allowing more resources to be allocated toward saving lives.

3. Rescue Groups

An adoption or transfer to a rescue group frees up scarce cage and kennel space, reduces expenses for feeding, cleaning, killing, and improves a community's rate of lifesaving. In an environment of millions of dogs and cats killed in shelters annually, rare is the circumstance in which a rescue group should be denied an animal.

4. Foster Care

Volunteer foster care is crucial to No Kill. Without it, saving lives is compromised. It is a low cost, and often no cost, way of increasing a shelter's capacity, improving public relations, increasing a shelter's public image, rehabilitating sick and injured or behaviorally challenged animals, and saving lives.

5. Comprehensive Adoption Programs

Adoptions are vital to an agency's lifesaving mission. The quantity and quality of shelter adoptions is in shelter management's hands, making lifesaving a direct function of shelter policies and practice. In fact, studies show people get their animals from shelters only 20% of the time. If shelters better promoted their animals and had adoption programs responsive to the needs of the community, including public access hours for working people, offsite adoptions, adoption incentives, and effective marketing, they could increase the number of homes available and replace killing with adoptions. Contrary to conventional wisdom, shelters can adopt their way out of killing.

6. Pet Retention

While some of the reasons animals are surrendered to shelters are unavoidable, others can be prevented-but only if shelters are willing to work with people to help them solve their problems. Saving animals requires communities to develop innovative strategies for keeping people and their companion animals together. And the more a community sees its shelters as a place to turn for advice and assistance, the easier this job will be.

7. Medical and Behavior Programs

In order to meet its commitment to a lifesaving guarantee for all savable animals, shelters need to keep animals happy and healthy and keep animals moving through the system. To do this, shelters must put in place comprehensive vaccination, handling, cleaning, socialization, and care policies before animals get sick and rehabilitative efforts for those who come in sick, injured, unweaned, or traumatized.

8. Public Relations/Community Involvement

Increasing adoptions, maximizing donations, recruiting volunteers and partnering with community agencies comes down to one thing: increasing the shelter's exposure. And that means consistent marketing and public relations. Public relations and marketing are the foundation of all a shelter's activities and their success. To do all these things well, the shelter must be in the public eye.

9. Volunteers

Volunteers are a dedicated "army of compassion" and the backbone of a successful No Kill effort. There is never enough staff, never enough dollars to hire more staff, and always more needs than paid human resources. That is where volunteers come in and make the difference between success and failure and, for the animals, life and death.

10. Proactive Redemptions

One of the most overlooked areas for reducing killing in animal control shelters are lost animal reclaims. Sadly, besides having pet owners fill out a lost pet report, very little effort is made in this area of shelter operations. This is unfortunate because doing so-primarily shifting from passive to a more proactive approach-has proven to have a significant impact on lifesaving and allow shelters to return a large percentage of lost animals to their families.

11. A Compassionate Director

The final element of the No Kill equation is the most important of all, without which all other elements are thwarted-a hard working, compassionate animal control or shelter director not content to regurgitate tired cliches or hide behind the myth of "too many animals, not enough homes." Unfortunately, this one is also oftentimes the hardest one to demand and find.

We adopted a golden retriever from the animal shelter two years ago. She is about 9 years old and a very sweet dog but needs to be with someone who is home most of the time. She has abandonment issues and does not like to be alone. The vet thinks she was in a puppy mill and had many litters and then was dumped when she was too old. That was when we got her. We have tried to make her happy in our home but we just are not home enough. She would make an excellent companion to someone who is home bound or a senior. She likes to go on walks but also likes to just hang out. She is very calm and is okay with just hanging out at home. Please contact if you are interested. [email protected]

I have a dog hat my brother brought home thinking I would want to keep him. I have never had a dog before in my life. I travel and have a government job. I can't take care of him. If I could take him everywhere with me than that would be a different story, so can someone please help me find him a home. His name is CHATO and he's chocolate brown with a white chest and two different color eyes. I like him very much, but I just can't afford a dog and quite frankly I don't know how to take care of them. He is about 8 months and weighs about 40 lbs. The family that gave him to my brother said they didn't have money to take care of a dog. I need to find him a home this weekend please email me if you can help. He is a very friendly dog and he's loving. [email protected]

I live in michigan. I can not get to CA. This little girl is breaking my heart. I have tried to contact shelter, they will not let me adopt out of state. I would pay her cost of adoption along with any immediate medical needs she has. I have posted plea after plea on the thread on FB. No rescues are responding. I do not know of any one in that region. Can your rescue help pull her? I would love to adopt her from you, if possible. Her hold is up Monday the 28th. Her info is Los Angeles County Animal Control - Lancaster at (661) 940-4191 Ask for information about animal ID number A3958095. Here is her pic. Sent from my iPhone. Please if you are not able to help me help her, can you point me in the right direction of someone that possibly can? Thank you for your time. Jen Yoon 9892970220 [email protected]
