Adoption

Keep scrolling down this page to view our available dogs, puppies, cats & kittens.

Dogs and cats are being euthanized almost every day in shelters in Kern County.  Why go to a breeder, when you can save the life of a dog or cat by adopting one?

Our adoption days are most Saturdays (weather permitting) from 11AM to 3PM in the parking lot of Radio Shack, located on the corner of Tucker Road and Valley Blvd.  On the first Saturday of every month the adoption days are held at Tractor Supply on Mill St. right next to the 58 freeway. Only the dogs will be at the adoption days. You can arrange to meet the cats/kittens with their foster mom or dad.

All rescued dogs and cats are placed in foster homes until permanent, loving homes are found. The animals are vaccinated, spayed or neutered, microchipped, and given any necessary medical treatment during this time period.

If you see a rescue dog or cat that you are interested in adopting in a newspaper, on our web site or at  http://www.petfinder.com/pet-search?shelterid=CA127 the process is as follows:

Step 1: The Application

Each prospective owner fills out an adoption application. Contact us at (661) 823-0699 and we will send you an application.

Step 2: The Meeting

Once your application is approved, an appointment can be made for you to meet the rescue animal. At the appointment, an adoption volunteer from the Tehachapi Humane Society will help you assess whether the rescue animal is a good match for your lifestyle and your family. The volunteer can also answer any questions you may have about the adoption process.

Step 3: The Adoption

Before you bring your new pet home, you must sign a contractual agreement with the Tehachapi Humane Society. In addition, an adoption fee is requested.
