Adoption Locations

Thank you for thinking adoption first when considering adding a new family member! Animal Friends Rescue Project has been a lifesaving force in Pacific Grove since 1998, dedicated to giving homeless dogs and cats their best chance to find forever homes. The AFRP Adoption Center in Pacific Grove is a great place to find your new best friend, with 20-30 cats and 5-10 dogs on site seven days a week. Each animal is spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. 

Additionally, AFRP operates three satellite cat adoption centers in Carmel, Monterey and Pacific Grove. We also hold regular offsite adoption days at various businesses and special events. Check our Calendar for a schedule. 

*Please note that the AFRP Adoption Center does not take in animals from the public. We are able to help the most at-risk companion animals by working with our local shelters. Read our Help Placing Your Dog or Cat page for more information about finding a new home for your pet.
