AFRP Dogs Looking for Homes - Call (831) 333-0722 if you are interested

AFRP's dogs are cared for in foster homes. If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, please call or email first before coming down to the adoption center. On any given day we have 5 to 10 dogs at the center, not ALL of our dogs are on site.

In order to ensure that we make the best match for a dog with a new family, potential adopters are required to go through an interview process, fill out an application, and have a home check done by one of our volunteers. We do not do same day adoptions. After meeting one of our dogs, it might take up to a week before the adoption process is complete and the dog goes home with you.

Please call (831) 333-0722 or email info@animalfriendsrescue.org if you are interested in adopting an AFRP dog and we will have the foster volunteer contact you directly.

AFRP only adopts out dogs that have been spayed/neutered. The adoption fee is $200-$300. The adoption fee helps to cover the cost of the care the animal has received, including spay/neuter, vaccines, microchipping, deworming, and flea treatment. Adopters are encouraged to take their new AFRP dog to one of our participating vets for a free wellness check (see list of participating vets).

Posted 2-1-18. Frog is an eleven year old Catahoula in good health who was born deaf. He is neutered, up-to-date on vaccinations, and heartworm negative. Frog currently weighs 58 pounds and is at a perfect weight. He is housebroken, crate trained and can be left at home without accidents. Frog has had extensive training with many classes and one on one training with experts. His current family really loves Frog who is super sweet with those he knows and have lived with him for 10+ years. Unfortunately, they recently had a new baby which he is reactive towards and he needs to be rehomed. Frog was a rescue 10 years ago and was abused / neglected. He is sometimes reactive to strangers and other dogs and will need a responsible new home. He's had a bite incident once so he should always be walked with a muzzle. Frog's current family wants to see Frog rehomed and will happily pay for all his future medical care, training, food, etc. for the rest of his life. Frog is not an AFRP dog and currently lives in Redwood City, CA. For more information please email Nile at geisinger.nile@gmail.com
Joy
Post renewed 5-1-18. Joy is a 6-year-old Pekingese mix that was rescued along with 20 other dogs from a neglectful backyard breeding operation. She is socialized with other dogs, but did not get much love from humans, and she is gaining trust in foster care. Joy is a very sweet and loving little dog, and is becoming quite playful. She is good with other dogs, is house trained and enjoys going for walks. A fairly quiet household will be best for Joy. She is scheduled for a dental cleaning on Jan 23. Great match for a retired adopter or someone that works from home. Joy is not an AFRP dog.

Lexi
Post renewed 5-1-18. Lexi is a 1-year-old Shepherd mix that originally came from the Stanislaus County Animal Shelter, after roaming the streets for several months and fending for herself.

If you enjoy hiking long walks or love to run Lexi will be the perfect match for you. She is crate trained, and housebroken. LEXI IS BEST SUITED TO A COUPLE, SINGLE PERSON OR A FAMILY WITH NO CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 13, best as the only dog. She prefers a quieter lifestyle to a noisy home. She is a very loving young dog, who did attend basic puppy obedience classes. New adopters will be required to attend further advanced training at an accredited class. Lexi is not an AFRP dog.

Achilles
Post renewed 5-1-18. Achilles is an 9 year old, 70lb cattle dog mix. He has a gentle, kind, shy soul but has unfortunately been through many homes recently through no fault of his own. Because of this and his breed mix, Achilles will always be slow to warm up to new people but is interested and does bond with you after just a few days. He will reward you with a little happy dance and some "stump-waggin'" whenever he sees you! All this guy really needs is a comfy corner spot in a stable quiet home environment again! Achilles is fully housebroken, crate-trained, treat motivated, good on leash, tolerant of other dogs, and a quiet companion. He just wants to be near his people again so would be happiest in a home with a full-time adult caretaker. As a shy dog, Achilles is not suitable for a noisy, busy environment and is afraid of most children. He's looking for a retired couple to follow around again for exercise and some comfy dog beds for rest. Achilles is not an AFRP dog.
