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.

Butterscotch

Butterscotch

Hello, I’m Butterscotch! My humans rescued me 6 yrs. ago, and I have been well loved and cared for. Sadly they recently had to move far away so I am looking for a new person or family to love me the way they did. I had a scary experience with fireworks, two years ago on the 4th of July. Since then I have suffered from “separation anxiety” and will probably need to take medication for the rest of my life when I am left alone. I’m embarrassed to admit it, but I don’t like to be alone sooo, I really need to be with people who are home most of the time, or even be willing to take me when they go. I get along well with other dogs and cats, and children. I love to run and play fetch, and I hate to brag, but I’m a pretty good watchdog too! I was told that I am a Boxer mix (but only a little bigger than a Cocker spaneil so who knows), spayed, & current with my rabies shot. I promise to be an excellent companion and love you back! I am currently in a temporary foster home in Mojave (661) 824-0500.

Pretty GirlPretty Girl

This is pretty girl. She was found at a gas station near Lake Piru and a nice couple picked her up. They tried to find her owner with no luck and were going to have to send her to the shelter. That is when Terry took her in. She is about 5-6 years old, spayed, weighs about 5lbs and we think she is a mini sheltie Chihuahua mix. She seems to have been treated like an only princess because did not like the other dogs at first but is getting used to them. She wants to be a lapdog so she should go to a quiet home with no other pets and someone at home most of the time to sit with her. She needs an experienced dog person that will teach her a manner or two as sometimes she will growl at someone when they come in. She definitely thinks she is THE DIVA!!! If you think Pretty Girl sounds like the dog for you please call Terry at 661 822 3670. This animal was placed as a public service.
