Adoptable Pets in California
Lifeline for Pets is a no-kill animal rescue group based in Pasadena, California. We provide care and cage-free shelter for homeless cats and dogs until a loving home can be found for them. Our goal is to help these deserving animals have a long, happy life!

Please join our efforts to help dogs and cats in need. You can make all the difference in an animal’s life. The best way to help is to adopt a pet. We have many adorable and loving pets waiting for their forever home. Meet our wonderful cats and dogs now.

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.

Can anyone answer a question i have? As much as I would live to adopt a certain dog being held in bp animal shelter I just cant. But since I visited this shelter my heart has been desperate to keep him from being killed. Is it possible for me to pay the shelter the cost of this dog until he can be adopted instead of them killing him?

We are caring for a beautiful Gray long-hair cat that was left behind when her owners moved out. She is marvelously loving, though a bit skittish about being picked up. Have tried to find her a home as I cannot keep due to having 3 large dogs, so I am reaching out to find help for her.

My Mom passed away and there are 4 cats that live at her house. It would sadden her to know they will be homeless and starving. We need help boarding or we will pay for someone to keep them until they may be adopted. We will pay for cat food and litter and will come by and visit with them and will continue to look for a permanent situation.

I am 83 yrs old and in process of selling (downsizing) my home (San Gabriel) and a beautiful black cat appeared in my yard 2 mo. ago. He is not feral..loves people...just wants to come inside and be petted and loved. I have been feeding him and allowed him to have my enclosed patio room to sleep in and I must find a good home for him. He is the friendliest, most unafraid cat I have ever encountered. I posted ads, flyers, contacted vets and pet stores..no response. Someone please help me find a good home for this precious cat. I will be gone from my home in about a month and don't know what will happen to him. Don't want to send him to the Humane society because I am so afraid they will put him down. My phone is: 626-286-8649. Desperate cat lover needs your help...or advice.

I have a friend that is no longer able to care for her chihuahua. The chihuahua has seizures on occasion. But the seizures are subdued by medication. My friend no longer has the ability to care and provide the proper care or meds for the dog. I was wondering if you could provide me with some information or recommendations of shelters that may take in a dog of this nature. The dog is well natured but does not see very well so she is a little skidish.please can you help?

Hi there, I came across your website because I see that you are a No Kill shelter. I just found a dog on the street near my home and am not sure what to do. I already have two dogs of my own and my landlord I'm sure will not be thrilled with the idea of adding another. If you can give me some information as to what to do with this little guy that I found. We found out his is not micro-chipped. He did have a collar and was clean. His teeth nice and white and nails cute. He is potty trained and is friendly, happy, and sleeps all night long. He does have a disibility, he is deaf. He is white so you can tell he was not missing for long when we found him, prob just got loose that morning. If you can give me any information to help me in finding a place I can take him I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you for your time, Jessica
