Our comfortable, compassionate new Adoption Center is a safe haven for pets while they wait for their new homes. This quiet, happy place showcases cats, kittens, dogs, puppies, rabbits, and other small pets that you can adopt into your heart and home. While here, you can drive past barn animals you can adopt, such as horses, goats, pigs, donkeys, chickens, or roosters. You can also ask about our Wildlife Center, which rescues injured and orphaned wild animals and provides shelter for adoptable exotic pets.

Milo came to AFRP from the Monterey County Animal Shelter and he's ready for his forever home. He's a fun and fabulous little companion dog and gets along nicely with other dogs.

Rescue and shelter dogs are a crapshoot. Although it’s hard to track down reliable statistics, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals estimates that about 3.9 million dogs go to shelters each year and 1.2 million are euthanized. Generally, these groups know only how an animal came into their possession. Behavior issues, illnesses or a high maintenance cost usually only rear their heads after adoption.

After receiving this hostile treatment, several would-be pet owners told me, they got offended and gave up. Others push on, (“As a dog ages, it often becomes incontinent and arthritic. How do you intend to handle your dog's age-related problems?”), supplying personal and veterinary references, and submitting to home inspections. Even after going through that ordeal, you can be told that you are unworthy for pet ownership, for reasons often left mysterious. At this point, many frustrated animal lovers can commit an act they’d previously thought abhorrent: They buy a dog, cat, bird, or guinea pig from a pet store or breeder.
