Meet the animals

We specialize in mixed-breed dog rescue, but we also rehome purebred dogs, cats, and other animals. See our list of animals awaiting homes here.

Apply to adopt

An animal caught your eye or captured your heart? Fill out our online adoption application (or print it out and mail it back to us).

Become a foster

We can’t do our work without our volunteer foster homes, and there’s always a need for more. Apply to become an SPR foster home.

Donate to SPR

We gratefully accept online donations through PayPal to help defray the cost of caring for our adoptable friends.

Who We Are

We are a group of friends dedicated to mixed breed dog rescue in northern California and around the world. Our mission is to help decrease pet overpopulation through our spay/neuter fund. In addition to mixed breed dogs, we occasionally have other animals available for adoption, including purebred dogs, cats and kittens, barnyard animals and others.

We do occasionally take in dogs, but when we can’t we are always willing to give advice and assistance where we can.

Adopting a Friend

All of our pets are up to date on vaccines and spayed/neutered, or arrangements to do so will be made. To our ability most of our animals are crate trained and housebroken. They live in a home environment, and are exposed to children, cats, dogs, etc.

While we don’t have a facility and all of our animals are in individual foster homes, we would love set up a time to have one of our pets be a potential new member of your family. So please call or email us: 707-350-7008 or info@specialpetsrescue.org.

If you don’t find your perfect companion here, please check out Lake County Animal Services for even more adoptable pets, or check out these other pet adoption resources.
